Computer won't boot past splash screen.

This morning when I tried to turn on my computer, it stopped cold at the bios splash screen. It wasn't frozen, I could press tab to look at post, but there were no errors, it was just displaying this:

I'm currently running
Gigabyte x58-USB3
i7-930 OC'd to 3.6GHZ
6GBs of RAM

The heat levels have been good, and all the fans and heatsinks are working properly.

Resetting the cmos granted me a brief respite, and it let me boot all the way up, but only one or two startup programs loaded, including the default windows programs. I could not view or change the sound levels, for example. I tried restarting again to run memtest, and now it bootloops just as it gets to the bios splash every time.

Thanks in advance for the help!

What about that gibberish at the "IDE Channel 1 Master" line. What device is supposed to be that, a DVD drive? Can you disconnect it?
