Random freezing during Windows 10 install

So I recently cleaned out my laptop, just generally got rid of dust and replaced any thermal paste and such. Once I closed it up, I booted up my laptop to check my temperatures. It then froze at the Windows 7 boot logo and when I restarted my laptop, it had a winload.exe missing error. Obviously odd but I couldn't get it back into W7, so I just downloaded Windows 10 onto a USB Stick and booted from it. Now, it randomly freezes during install. Sometimes it's at the W10 logo, sometimes it's when I'm selecting the partition to install to, but I have not gotten through the installer without a lock-up. So, I'm kinda stuck. What could be causing my issue?

Reseat the RAM, make sure the heatsink(s) are on properly.
