    Are both of them connected when it happen? Have you tried disconnecting all other drives but the one you boot from including any USB devices as well?

    Can you post a picture of the delay stage and the boot failure screens?

    I'm sorry i asked for help but i have been tied up so much lately that i did not have much time to care of my business.

    So like i said last post, if i press power, then immediately press reset, the pc loads to desktop. If i dont, it jams and it says to boot from cd,dvd etc.

    I have a second hard drive to which i installed Win7 (the trial version0, and the pc behaves the same.

    Where do i go from here?.

    thank you.

    It's cool, we all have lives aside from our computers. No problem I was just checking in with you was all.

    How about if you remove/unplug the reset switch? OR try another case power switch if possible? Could be a faulty switch, or a short. Does this happen if you have the board out of the case and OFF the motherboard tray?
