Really apologize for the late reply.
I downloaded and burned partition wizard on a CD. This was a week ago and it didnt even reach the bios screen when i restarted my pc with my old Hard Disk.
Then I borrowed a friend's old mother board and after I was done assembling the rest of the components to it, i noticed the plug that leads into my SMPS was burnt on 1 of its pin. The plastic was melted and stuck onto my SMPS pins.
I got a new power cable and put together my motherboard again but didnt boot bios again.
Then i replaced the smps ... and still didnt boot. So i finally called a local computer engineer, and took over my PC to him. Within seconds the PC booted. I got it back home and it worked for me too.
Next morning, same old story. No bios screen.
I reassembled all components again etc etc and i was using my old SATA Hard disk so all the constant rebooting does not corrupt my new SATA. Then after a little fight with my graphic card in my PCI-e, the PC booted, my old Sata worked perfectly fine. I took all my backups in any case and switched back to my new hard disk. Now i have an extra hard disk with me
So i guess this incident blew a huge hole into my original query. Although ill never find out what exactly was causing it. Im sure it wasnt as simple as giving my graphic card an extra push. I removed and re-inserted everything on my mumboard several times. And several times i tried booting it with just the RAM inserted.
I even suspected the burnt out cable and the SMPS, but in spite of replacing both of these, the problem repeated the next day.
Whatever it was, seems to have been taken care of (hope i am not jinxing it)
Anyways, as usual i appreciate the help i receive on this forum. Have a great day.
