In that case, can you post a screenshot of device manager with IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers expanded. Start Menu -> Right click Computer -> Manage -> Device Manager from the list on the left... Alternatively: Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager.

Additionally, download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

Here's the images you asked for. Also, the attached text file contains the report for the disk check. Zipped up for easier attaching.

Windows has made corrections to the file system.
Suggest you run the disk check again. See my previous post about this message.

Looks good. See how the system responds for a while and post back how things are going.

My computer stopped working for a bit starting this Monday. I hadn't used it all weekend, and Friday it had been working fine. It turned on, but had no display, which was odd since the monitor was detecting the DVI cable. I ran my PS3 through it no problem, so it wasn't the cable or the monitor. It's not my video card, since no video ports on my computer were sending out a signal. That goes for all 3 DVI's the two HDMI's, and the VGA. After messing around a bit inside the case, I got it to turn on. Then today it wasn't working again. I noticed this time that the Dr. Debug display was showing 2A. Since my motherboard's box and owner's manual is back home and I'm in college, I used my laptop to find a manual online. Apparently 2A means RAM issues. Which is funny since I thought I made sure they were in the slots tight and I ran Prime95 and Memtest86+ both longer than necessary with no errors. So I took out the fan that was blocking one of my RAM sticks and pushed it in pretty hard to make sure it wasn't loose. After that, my computer booted. Could it have been a slightly loose stick of RAM this entire time?
I haven't even given it a chance to blue screen since that, but I'm hoping that it's done, whether it was the RAM or the hard drive errors.

It very well could have been a loose RAM module; I have seen this cause crashes before. Let us know how the system responds over the next few days. Best of luck!
