And then what happens? Does the computer itself also shut down? Do you have to restart to get it back to boot? Or is it that the computer keeps running and just the monitor shuts itself down? What...what happens exactly?
..But after a random, period of between 1-2 minutes the monitors go into sleep mode..

If needed, you will have to do it from outside Win8. eg, by booting from Win7 o.s. DVD; otherwise, if OEM pc preloaded with Win7 from factory, by using the factory restore partition.
I can't re-install Windows 7 from within Windows 8.

The horror starts here. During boot-up, if I try to lead from a disc or USB thumb drive or even log into Ubuntu, after a random but short amount of time my monitors go into power saving mode and I am unable to see anything...
They all pointed to the same thing - overheating of the GPU. And you promptly did the right thing.
I am seeing the the GPU is apparently running hot. I'm going in to investigate further.
Oh, that seemed like a mess-up during installation(or shortly, after). Did uninstalling the drive and restarting via device manager didn't help(like I said before)? Or you just tried this first?
..The problem with the drive letters has been resolved and they appear to be functioning correctly. I found the error code and was recommended to clear out the registry values for the upper and lower limits for my optical drives. After a quick back up, deletion and restart, we are good to go..

Maybe, but that still doesn't help explain the constant re-starts he had of his system. Only this does.
If I understand correctly, Win8 is still working on that PC, right? it seems that during installation win8 setup has overwritten your master boot records, that is the section of your hard drive that tells your computer that the X operating system is located at partition Y...etc
if you want to get rid of windows8 you would need to fix the master boot record, if you have a back up image of your hard drive, restoring it would fix this, or download any dual boot program or master boot record fixer.
