i faced an electricity power cut (due to some maintanence back at the station). After that my pc started to restart after 2,5,10 minutes itself. After few restarts it wont display anything. So i thought my GPU died. But then i attached the card to another PC with the same powersupply (As a whole the second pc consumes very less power then that of my primary). The display was there (i was like thank God xD). I guess my psu has some issues as the 1st pc runs a low power consuming card fine (8500 GT). The PSU is still working fine on this low power pc. But it wont work on the main pc. Can i get it repaired or something? Will take it to some electronics today

Total of 44 amps at 12 volts is pitiful for a 750 watt PSU. I have a 550 watt PSU that provides almost the same amount of usable power - Corsair 550VX (41 amp 12 volt rail).

It's pretty unlikely that you will be able to get a PSU repaired. Labor costs alone will come to more than most PSU's are worth.

Those things sold for $34 on Amazon, doubt it could do 44 amps.
