Thank you for the reply. I came home from work a bit early today to take a closer look, and powered the computer on and got the same response. So I took a look inside the case, everything looked fine, but I decided since I was in there to unplug the sata connection and plug it into a different slot. This seemed to work, it booted up and windows try to repair the startup procedure and said nothing was wrong. Do the connections go bad often? Or is it possible that this wasn't really the problem and it will continue to randomly give me problems?
