I hope this is the thread you were seeking help with? That is unusual and I have never seen or heard that happening. However just as an attempt which is harmless is to remove the CMOS battery and put it back in after a minute. Also check if the video card connector on the card itself (the golden part) is dirty or anything. Also when re-installing make sure it makes a clicking noise when fully inserted.

If all that fails then switch back to the other hard drive and see if it makes a difference.
