    No beeps. The Dell logo appears, loads, then shows the Windows boot screen for a split second before displaying the error.

    EDIT: Here is the error message I get - Attachment 10427

    Problem can be in one of two places, hardware, but now Im thinking more its a corupt boot MBR.
    Give this a try
    Using bootrec.exe to fix MBR in Windows 8 (Master Boot Record)
    Please be advised that since 8 is so new, most recommendations have not been tested yet. Acually you are the test.

    I have messed around with it some more, I think I will just go ahead with the clean install. :/ I got past the error and now it just BSOD.

    EDIT: Went to try to refresh the PC, errors and it results in an error.

    Sometimes that is the best way to go
    Install software slowly, make sure there are no more BSODs, before you install the next group. This way you will know if it is your software that is causing the problems and which software in particular.

    Agree. I think it to be good advice. Sometimes we get in too much of a hurry. Install the OS, run for a time, and make sure all is up to par. Drivers, which many seem to have problems with 8. Make sure updates are installed, etc. Run OS for a time before installation of other software.
