I would start a new post in Hardware coming at it as a hardware problem to get fresh eyes on this from the hardware experts.

If you have reinstalled Win7 several times with the same problem, your BIOS is flashed to latest with defaults, SATA controller set first to ACHI for install, then IDE if necessary, your memory is stress tested with memtest86 CD, hard drive testing with maker's diagnostics full scan, cables all swapped to test, then I don't really know what else to suggest.

Someone may have some mobo tests for you in Hardware forum, or be familar with issue.

Don't get discouraged, as the net effect of all of what you are going through is that you will learn more about computers than most people ever will and be able to handle other issues in the future with confidence.
Or... I could just learn to live with this problem until the end!!
After turning my PC on, I wait 1 minute and press reset button, sometimes it will boot from the first reset, sometimes it takes 3 or 4 resets. That's it.

Thanks a lot for your help and sticking with me!!
Yeah, hopefully I am getting to understand a lot about the PC world.

I will keep you posted on what I've done to my system to solve this issue,
if you want to.
