:) My Computer Is reading off of my H drive instead of the C Drive and I know they are backwards and it is causing me alot of problems such as the lsass.exe error and the blue screen of death with the CONFIG_LIST_FAILED I know I am going to have to Reinstall my OS but I was wondering if anyone could help to guide me through switching drives back around. Thanks alot. :)

This usually happens when Windows has been installed whilst your memory card reader is connected. Disconnect your memory card reader (If its a built in card reader, it will usually have one cable that plugs onto a port on the motherboard, just unplug it). After you have reinstalled Windows, just plug the card reader back in. :)

Yes.
Unplug it, reinstall Windows then plug it back in and it'll come up as (probably) Drives E, F, G and H.

Yep, just open your case (left hand panel usually, unless its a Dell where you take off the right hand side panel), then trace the cable from your card reader to the Motherboard and just unplug it. Then reinstall Windows (I take it you have already backed up your data), then once Windows is installed, just shut your PC down and plug that cable back in and you should be fine. Unfortunately, there is not a way to change the H: drive to C: drive without reinstalling Windows, been there myself :)
