Have you plug in your new HDD yet? If no, then don't plug in it because the virus may migrate to it. Only have the new HDD plugged in when installing Win7 to ensure it's clean. If the problem goes away, then it may be an infected HDD. Get Ultimate Boot CD and use review the list of tools it has. I would start with MemTest86+ to test the RAM and then move on to HDD tools. Whenever you're working on the old HDD, make sure it's the only drive plug into the motherboard. Like Abyss said, CPU generally don't fail. I would swap the motherboard first to test that theory as a last resort. Oh, and don't forget to use a different SATA cable to test, it could be a faulty cable.
