I had a similar problem with a client's machine.
What I had to do was disable Native SATA Support in the BIOS, which I believe is the equivalent of running the hard drive in IDE mode.
VanillaCena's suggestion is a good one, you'll see options like AHCI or perhaps compatibility mode. Try disabling it and see if it helps.
When you got the blue screen, was the error code something like nvldsomething? I had a similar problem with a client's computer. New video card didn't help, I still don't know for sure but we assumed it was the PCI slot. Later I found out that it was a driver not loading properly, the nvldsomething doesn't copy to the windows32 folder at the time of installation.Edited by DravenHavok - 5/16/11 at 3:39pm
