I have to push the cable and jumper wire of HD, Floppy Drive, including unplug/replug them. I just touched the power cable and the flat IDE cable to make the PC booted. I could not find out its cause nor can I indicate when this problem will happen. If none of that works, then it is probably on the motherboard and you'll have to throw it out. I suspect whether it is the cause of electrical interference. Also I have 2 hard drives on this PC mounted on mobile racks. (which it does) Never seen this before and it happens every single time the computer starts up.

I had a power failure and then when the electricity came it bursted the power supply.
