I'd guess the PSU if the RAM test comes back with a pass. Are you able to swap in another known good PSU to test?

Hopefully it won't until it finishes at least one complete pass.

Should i leave the secondary hard drive connected while running the tests?
It shouldn't make a difference as the program runs without the HD's but if you would like you can disconnect the second hd for the tests

The next step would be as Troy suggested and try to use a known good working PSU.

i have let the pc boot up after running test, and it has restarted itself after 5 mins, as it stands at the moment only the original hd is connected to the machine.
