I ran chkdsk and then rebooted. Windows renamed the corrupt file, and then I was able to delete it.

Nothing, no attempts at this.. :( I have an idea. I'll try it and report back if it works.

comment How to partition my hard drive, quicker?
@Breakthrough: COA (OEM) license key won't work with Retail version media downloaded from MSDN. You need OEM media to work with that key.

64 KB is the smallest allocation unit size setting available for exFAT on a volume this size.

Would the performance difference between 16 versus 32 versus 64 be noticeable?

What do you recommend for a good all around allocation unit size setting?

Tried a brand new PCI Express video card. Still nothing. Going to have to get a new motherboard I guess. Kind of ridiculous, all I did was restore factory defaults and reboot!

Tried leaving the battery out for hours with the machine unplugged. Still no signal. I'm stumped.

I used two different monitors: 1 a CRT that doesn't toggle at all, 2 a LCD that does toggle, and it was set to the correct input (DVI).

Excellent point, I'll retry the battery thing and make sure it's not plugged in. At the time, I needed to change the IP so I could remote into it, I'll see if I can remote in though now. Also, I didn't set my IP in the BIOS, I was just checking the BIOS, because I'm a freak.

You didn't ask, but fixing the Target to a valid path makes the icon reappear.

1. Yes it shows the correct icon. 2. Correct, you can't change the icon if the current Target is invalid, so I can't test that.

comment Configure Guest account so user can't browse the Program Files folder
Read and execute means they can read and therefore copy. I am trying to avoid having them be able to copy it to another disk.

Well, if BloodPhilia really was first, I'll have to mark him as the answer.

comment Windows unrecoverable error wouldn't come out of Hibernate
As I stated in the question, this laptop has no battery. It was powered down completely before I removed it from the base station and started moving it. +1 for the great info.
