Sounds like bad RAM. Can you boot to a recovery console or does the system disk ever boot to the point where you can choose recovery console? If not then try pulling the RAM and reseating it. If you can boot to the recovery console try running a CHKDSK.

i tried almost everything, i took out the ram and inserted it again, i bought new cables for the hard drive. i cleaned the tower, thinking the dust could cause the problem but nothing worked

"If you can boot to the recovery console try running a CHKDSK."
