Default Win 7 Install hangs at Expanding files

I had windows 7 perfectly installed the first time I put the disk in, and then I messing with my Memory because its not displaying the correct speeds in the bios.

After setting the latencies and clock speed to the correct ones, win 7 wouldnt boot up. I thought It got corrupted, so I decided to re-install fresh again.... I formatted the partition wthout attemting to revert the old memory stuff back to normal.

I am just formating now, but before all of this the Expanding files step would just hang like noones buisness.
When I first installed it took like 15 minutes to do the whole thing!

If I do a full format of my main drive as I am doing now will it be okay? or do I have to clear the cmos?

I already reverted all of the settings back to normal via the option to do so within the Bios... so the installation part boots up just fine, but again running into the same problem.

SO.... Do you all think a fresh format of my C drive should do the trick?
