Question

PC won't boot after installing new part...

I'm gonna make this simple, I have to type on my phone since no computer.

Bought a new cooler for an upgrade, comp ran fine before. Installed the part, started up fine, downloaded corsair link, went to install and then comp kept restarting and giving me errors. Ran to bestbuy exchanged the part, still did the same thing. Swapped ssd out, ram, psu, gpu, tried old cooler. Still the same problem.

What could have happened in that short time of changing out the part and downloading software?

Like how can it all of a sudden not get to my login screen and what is my next step in fixing it? I need my computer. I'm good with computers but when it comes to actually solving the problem I'm a potato.

Some things that happen

Windows loading screen
"Your pc ran into a problem"
Restarts
Automatic repair
Will not do a system restore, it will try but fail. I can not even attempt to wipe in and reinstall windows because it will wipe a very important program that has info saved.

Clarification Request
Is this Windows 7 on a Skylake?

I don't see machine details but I'm starting to read more and more troubles with the new CPUs and older Windows.

Do you get the BIOS screen

so you can get into Safe Mode to try a System Restore ?

Doesn't work

I was able to select safe mode and it still tells me it ran into a problem and needs to restart. System restore fails every time. Sad

Ssd

How is it you could swap the ssd but you can't reinstall windows?

Did you expect this new ssd to just work?

Grab a copy of linux and put it on a dvd or usb stick.
Boot it up.
Play with some of the features, file explorer, internet, etc.
Does it also fail?

Re: reinstall Windows

Boot from some Linux disc or stick (free to make) and copy the data from that very important program (I assume it's very important data) to a USB-stick or external hard disk. And copy everything else you forgot to backup and don't want to lose.

Then try to reinstall Windows (and not to forget that very important program).
