So back in May, I took it upon myself to build a PC so I could do some PC gaming. Steam sounded awesome, and I really wanted to play Diablo 3. Got some help from a friend, and everything went smoothly up until about August/September. I don't remember exactly how it happened, but the end result was, everything my PC got kind of fucked and it would blue screen or otherwise crash after seconds of being on and wiping/reinstalling Windows did nothing. At some point, it seemed that either my copy of Windows 7 was corrupted or my HDD was garbage.
Not wanting to spend my money then, I have since replace the HDD with a SSD, and have bought a brand-new copy of Windows 7. The installation went fine, the desktop started up, and then BAM! Blue screen and restart within seconds.
My question is, is there any surefire way to fix this without starting completely from scratch? I've spent some money on this already and really don't want to have to spend more. If more specifics are needed I'll see what I can do.
Sorry if this is a little rant-y, I really needed to vent.
Edit: Got everything running, doesn't seem to crash (for now, though I'll keep an eye on it). However, every time I start up I now get this:
So I installed the the drivers I've got off the two discs I have, restarted the computer and it took a real long time "Preparing my desktop", came up, black background, and this error message:
"Location is not available
C:\\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly insterted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location."
And if I try to open and file (like Documents):
The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password."
Edit 2: And now this seems to have solved itself after another reboot. Gonna let things sit for a while and update or whatever.
