More information. System maintenance keeps popping up. I scanned for issues and it came up with "disk volume errors" It says fix on reboot, but that's it. It doesn't do it by itself on restart. I've ran sfc /scannow twice with no integrity violations.

And you get the RAW message trying to run a disk check on C: ? Something is not right if that is the case... I have never seen that before.

Use Advanced Boot Options to select Repair Your Computer and get to the System Recovery Options. Then select the command prompt. Do the following:
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:
.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
Windows has made corrections to the file system
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.

Oh, I have many many more hard drives and partitions. I kept my hard drives from my old computers because... why not and I kinda went crazy with buying hard drives when they were crazy cheap before the floods in Taiwan. I'm running chkdsk through a recovery disk I'm assuming that's ok. I'll run it again and unplug all my other drives.

I have no idea if this is relevant, but when the blue screens first started (and it's still happening now) I would get a popup showing waiting for programs to close when I was shutting down my computer. I don't remember getting that unless a program was being really really stubborn about closing. And now it does it every time I shut down. It'll even show the message when there's no programs waiting be closed. It'll just be blank area where a list of programs should be listed.

ummm so one thing I noticed when I booted into recovery it said that the operating system is located on disk J: if I had all my hard drives plugged in (WRONG!). Now with all of them unplugged it says the partition with the operating system is disk D: (STILL WRONG).

So in other words. The recovery CD says the operating system is located on a different partition than what windows explorer says.

This is really making my head hurt...

The recovery environment does not show the system location the same way that Windows Explorer does. It is semi-random, but typically based on where partitions reside and disks reside. For instance, on my system, this is how it typically shows up:

Attachment 210561

The red letters are what the recovery environment sees for my partitions. The black letters are what Windows Explorer shows.

Hmmm... You were in the recovery environment, correct?

Getting a blue screen outside the Windows installation typically indicates hardware issues.

Yep. Booted to the recovery CD. I'm running memtest86 like a madman. I also noticed my computer is now booting lightning quick. I don't know why. I know I unplugged them (my extra hard drives) before during troubleshooting and it didn't make a difference in boot time. Also, memtest86 seems to be testing my CPU...
