Default Windows 7 not installing on new build

hey guy so i just built a new computer last week! brand new everything. The problem that i am getting is when i go to install windows 7 64 bit its gets through the windows loading files fine, but then goes to the next screen that says "starting windows" and it freezes then! I have updated my bios and that seemed to help a bit as it allowed the windows symbol (colors blue red yellow) to show up as before it did not. i have tried each ram individually and still has not helped. I plugged my harddrive into my old rig and it allowed the windows setup to go through but will not work with the new computer parts. i have tried since last friday to figure this out and I have not been able to figure it out and still have no idea if it is a hardware defect or what? Please help if you can!

My computer specs are:
MSI 870A-G54 motherboard
AMD phenom 2 x4 955 black edition quad core
600 watt psu
DDR3 PC3-10666 PNY 4gb Ram (two 2 gb sticks) @ 1333mhz
750 GB Seagate Barracude 7200 rpm Serial ATA Hard Drive
Evga GeForce GTS 450 Video card
Asus Sata dvd drive

Just tried to do a memory test. It completed to 79% and then my computer stayed on and i hada high pitch noise happen and continue until i turned my pc off because 1) it was annoying and 2) pc was frozen. I'm beginning to think its bad ram or mobo. I'm not a computer guy but thats just my thought so hopefully someone here with more knowledge will be able to help me! thanks!

Have you checked the temps of the CPU? It may be overheating.

it runs at 34c. I just did another memory test on my other stick of ram and my computer froze at 10%. Did a second test with same stick of ram and it froze at 15%

its been solved. I had bad ram!
