Edit 2: Ok, I've sort of solved the issue :/ Would be interested to know if anybody can tell me what the hell is going on though.
I have 3 HDD's installed, 1 for the OS, 2 for storage. One of those storage drives has never been touched since I installed it, but it has old files on it from my old old mac. I disconnected it (but not the boot HDD or the 1st storage HDD) to try see if that helped. It didn't, but reconnecting it did. And other than my desktop image being black for about 20 seconds, everything is fine again.
This solution worked before, when I had a different issue with Windows. But that drive has never been touched, so how can it affect the BIOS or OS this way?
Sorry for the drama, but my heart was in my throat for a few hours there........Edited by JWak-1 - 2/26/13 at 7:51pm
