Guys,I am going totally crazy with a persistent PC problem which occurs randomly and erratically,as stated below:
After I turn on my PC after a gap of ,say 5 hours,here is what happens in exact sequence:
1)I switch on the main power
2)I switch on my UPS
3)I switch on my Power Button
4)Power LED(Blue) turns on.
5)HDD LED turns on for .3 secs and then goes off
6)Monitor turns from Active Power Mode to Standby Mode.
7)All the Cabinet fans and SMPS,CPU and GPU fans are running fine.
8)BIOS does not go to post.System freezed.
8)Now I press the power button for 3-4 seconds.
9)Machine boots fine.XP/Vista runs fine.
I have changed my CMOS battery.Reset my BIOS.Even updated my BIOS with the latest ROM file.Problem persists.
Here are my BIOS details:
Could it be a HDD problem?Could it be a problem with BIOS itself?Could it be a heat issue?
Please suggest as I've lost all sleep and peace of mind.
My SMPS is brand new.
