well the 3rd option I mentioned is still a possibility. will help you rule out a few things.
If a FRESH operating system still has the issue then it would definitely be hardware

Did you do "quick scan" or "full scan" in PW recovery wizard?
You know how many paritions were on disk before you did screw it up?
All those partitions were adjacent to each other (no unallocated space in between)?
You know the sizes (approximately) of the partitions you would expect?

Do a "quick scan", normally it will list all partitions (if there were adjacent). Don't recover 3MB partitions (they are fake, but I've seen them many times). You can see if the partition is NTFS and the size and "used size". Not sure what to recover??.... post screenshot

It would better if you performed furmark; not any other thing. MSI program is not that much efficient and trustworthy.

When WEI runs 'Testing Direct 3D 9' or something along those lines it crashes. It also crashes during gaming, not even heavy gaming. And crashes on internet use, such as heavy youtube.
As there is an issue, there must be a reason behind it.

The computer shuts down at its own. It is not overheating. No testable hardware are not failing. Then there remains the motherboard which we cannot test directly. And, before blaming the motherboard, we should make all the other options exploited.

Is this one of the striped volumes which are around 290gb that you deleted? How? How is it even possible to be given a tutorial to mark another HD's Partition D Inactive and end up deleting a completely different HD's striped partition thereby destroying all of the data on the striped drives? I'm sorry but I cannot imagine this and haven't seen anything like it in all five years of WIn7.

Post another screenshot of Disk Mgmt so we can see what tells you this is deleted. The found partition has no used space so may be lost. Others may need to be consulted to determine exactly what can be done.

Waiting for the screenshot requested.

Please answer how this happened so we know what we're working with. I don't see anywhere near the data that was on D, which was only to have been marked Inactive. PW is usually very good about being able to easily undelete partitions. Was anything else done?

May be still running the test, which is why the partition recovery can't proceed - or the Disk Mgmt screenie.

I marked the partition as inactive, on both of my 1TB.
Then I saw that they still had primary paritions while my stripped drive or USB didnt have one. So I thought that they would would without a primary partition and have them naked.
So I started with my D drive and used diskpart to clean the drive.
That is when the issue happened. I'm pretty sure it did not format the drive because it took about half a second to clean, while I know it takes much longer to delete 1TB of data.

And according to MS clean command only marks files for deletion.

Ok well it crashes instantly with FurMark on any Burn in test. on a 720 test it will run for a couple seconds and then crash.
I wanted to try out my second card, and then try out my old geforce 8990 before I posted, but I didn't have time last night, so I will do that when I get home from class.

Yeah, I really am trying to not use the drive at all. Because if they files were only marked for deletion, then everything should still be recoverable as long as I don't use it.

Thing is that drive had all my downloads, documents and programs. So I am stuck using IE, and having to reinstall a lot of these programs on my C drive to work.

Ill get the screenie when I get home today.

And again guys, really, thank you so much for your help. Im trying to rep as much as possible, but the website is limiting me.
