Default weird failures

my dad's friend's PC is having some weird failures. Its easily the best computer ive ever used myself, but recently its died.

8GB DDR2, 3.3GHz CPU, 450W PSU, i have no idea about the GPU.

but anyway, after attempting to install Win7, it got to finalization then shut itself down. upon reboot, it doesnt even register that anything's been installed. he tried twice, now it gets Win7 safe mode.

any ideas? it boots in safe mode no problem, but it wont boot regularly.

EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

Default Re: weird failures

sounds like it could be a driver issue, but that's really weird with win7, I love win7 because you can swap out motherboard after motherboard, go from chipset to chipset and it automatically loads the drivers, I've personally gone from 975X to P35 to X48 with no problem...
