As far as the sata, why would hp have the hd on ied when it could have used sata plug that is handy...?

Maybe because Vista was getting such bad reviews, it would make installing XP a lot easier.

Just a thought.

Try putting that program on a CD and running it.  See what it finds

There are so many things that could be wrong with that PC. It could be a virus since you can't run a virus scan.  That does seem to be one of the symptoms.  Try booting into safe mode and see if you can run AVG from there.

Dave I keep hearing a lot of good things about Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  

http://www.malwarebytes.org/lp/pcoptimize?gclid=CKLjnLzXh68CFehgTAod7y oq_w

Get the FREE one.  

For stubborn infections, and when the malware seems to be shutting down virus scanners, they suggest you download it to a clean computer, then put the downloaded file on a Flash Drive.   Insert the Flash Drive into to infected PC and boot into Safe Mode.  Install and run the program from Safe Mode. Do you have internet connection?  If so be sure to update the  scanner.

When you install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware choose the Custom install so you get to choose what gets installed.  These programs these days come with all kind of additional stuff you don't want.  If you leave the Default install check these extras are installed automatically.

well the scan finished and no virus.

I do believe this is the problem. I am looking at that place where I bought the ram and they sell junk to people that isn't compliant, even though their site is easy to find your pc to get the right part:

So far it is. I have to leave in a minute, so check it out later but it looks like this was the problem. It answers why I got all those blue screens while trying to reformat, and everything else. Now the question may be, whats the best way to recover that harddrive? I will try to use the recovery disc I guess.

Are you talking about the first one with C: drive on it?  Be sure you unplug the 2nd HDD.

I plugged in the other hd, so now they are both plugged in as before. It booted up to the old os, like nothing had ever happened. It appears to be working fine. That ram card must have messed it up so bad that those reformats wouldn't even have an affect.. The only thing different is I lost the content on drive f and it hs a copy of windows in it, buts its less than a gig worth.

The pc seems a bit slow but otherwise is back to normal.
