Awesome, I'm glad you found the culprit. :)

i found out it was my HD

Its funny, you wouldn't think an HD would cause that problem at that level(just powering on or just trying to POST), but I've seen it many times before.

Good luck with everything.

I hate to bump a dead thread.. but looking back at the things you mentioned with the memory.. do you think with it running stock it could be capping my performance? my computer loads a video game of mine really slow.. my other friends load a good 5 seconds faster... sometimes even 10 seconds.

Check to see what speed your RAM is actually running at.

Also, what is the brand name and model of your hard drive? IME, on a machine with hardware as good as you have, the HDD is often the bottleneck. In cases like this I have moved to an Intel or OCZ SSD for the OS.
