formatted the c: dirve with the recovery disk, reinstalled windows, reinstalled the drivers, getting windows updates, installed firefox, installed SP2, installed IE8, and was in the process of installing AVG free when got a bsod very quickly - computer restarted and then gave the message "Primary hard disk drive 0 not found - no bootable devices. If I restart the computer it boots to windows - but will again get the bsod quickly and then the same thing. Ran the bluescreenview and it says that there have been no crashes

I would run the appropriate hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic (long test, not the short test) on the hard drive in question.

Run the hard drive diagnostics and then those will tell you if that is the issue, if the hard drives come out with no errors we will explore more possibilities.
