The problem is as stated in the title; I can't seem to forward any ports. I've opened them up on my router, and through windows firewall, yet my ports remain closed. Specifically I am trying to forward port 25565 for minecraft. Any help is appreciated. Don't be afraid to have me go through the process of forwarding my ports again.

To setup port forwarding you need to assign a fixed IP address to the target system. Have you done that?

What is the make and model number of your router?
What OS are you using? XP, Vista or Win 7?

I have set up a static IP address. I have a Belkin f5d7230-4 router, version 1444. I use windows 7. Thanks for helping me.

For Belkin, you go to the Firewall / Virtual Servers area.

Inbound port is 25565-25565
Private IP Address is whatever you have assigned as a fixed IP, 192,168.2.xxx
Private port also 25565-25565

As a test, you could disable the Windows Firewall to see if it works. If yes then the firewall is the problem.

Windows Firewall, Advanced settings:

Inbound Rules:
General: Enabled, Allow connection

Protocols and Ports:
Protocol Type: TCP
Local port: Specific port, 25565
Remote port: All ports

Scope:
Local and Remote: Any IP address

Setup info is on page 41 of the Users Guide.
