Yes I did! Booted the system up with 1 stick at a time, same message popped up. So I rebooted to boot from the UBCD.

Well, sometimes, re-seating RAM helps. Let's hope this is the case :)

The funny thing is, is after the memtest was complete, the PC booted into Windows with no problem. After having reseating all the RAM, ran memtest, the system was running fine. I have even rebooted into Safe Mode, and back to Windows normally no problems. Maybe it was the RAM needed to be reseated. We'll see.

Exactly.
Sometimes, computers behave like little kids. They got cured just by entering doctor's office :)

I told my friend to leave the system on, and after a while it shut down automatically. She booted the system up the next day and up came the IPL error message came again. So she waited a while, then booted the system up again, and it went right into Windows. Now I'm thinking that the data cable is going bad, the hard drive failing, or maybe just reseating the CMOS battery. If all those check out fine, my next conclusion would be a faulty HDD controller. What do you think?

Hmm could be a failing CMOS battery
When you try to reboot right away the battery is low. Letting it sit for a bit it recharges somewhat so everything works then.
