    i ended up finding a great disk called the ultimate boot disk! has everything from memtest down to the programs for testing my harddrive and cpu! well the good part is no errors were found. i did try and put a used hard drive in as a slave. i removed it so im hopeing that took care of the error. thanks for your help!

    If the used harddrive has any issues (ie bad spots or slow)
    This could have caused the problem.

    Please let us know the outcome, now that it is removed.
