hello, my pc keeps on restarting, sometimes without even the display to come. Or sometime after the display has been shown. I can never go past the bios. If i remove the hdd it boots up fine and stays on for unlimited time, but asks for a bootin disk. Same goes with my other hdd....both bootup fine on my other pc.

Western Digital 250GB
Gigabyte GA P35DS3L
9800gx2
750 watts
4 gb ram(tried one ram, all work fine on other pc)

The VOLTAGES from psu are fine too.

i have refered to the "Step by step guide to build a pc" and "Perform these steps before posting no video". Also my pc worked fine for few months, i turned it off the next day i got this :( . I've tried re attaching all the components too

Change the battery on the mobo, maybe it's low.
