Fresh reformat/reinstall...possible IDE controller issue.

Regardless I seem to have figured out my odd little SCSI/RAID controller issue. I'd apparently uninstalled Daemon Tools Pro without disabling a virtual drive, which Windows just didn't like. Now I have to start the process of trying older video card drivers, because the chatter on the Nvidia forums seems to say that the latest drivers are causing all sorts of problems for people.
Thank you to all the people who have popped into this thread and to help me deal with issues I always seem to cause myself.

And a friend was able to track down a thread online somewhere about SeaTools for Windows returning SMART failures while other diagnostic software says things are fine. Which SpeedFan seems to indicate, saying its not finding any issues with my hard drive, fitness and performance are both at 92% which sounds pretty good to me. Guess I'll yank out all the nonessential hardware, reformat and reinstall Windows and start installing hardware and drivers one at a time.

Freshly reformatted and reinstalled windows. Took the longer route of yanking out all my extra hardware and installing each card and its drivers one at a time. Which now leaves me with another somewhat odd issue. Windows seems to be seeing an unknown PCI device in PCI slot 7 (PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0), which strikes me as really odd because I can count and identify all my PCI/PCIe devices that are installed. Physics card in slot 1, sound card in slot 2, video card in slot 4. Now my motherboard itself only has 5 PCI/PCIe slots, so what in the world could Windows be seeing in slot 7?
Probably something onboard. Have you reinstalled the chipset drivers?
