Thanks for the advice. I will near tears last night lol so decided to goto bed and wait untill this morning with a fresh head.
I did what you said reset cmos but this didnt help, i tried switching to second bios but again no power on. Then i unplugged both graphics cards. I powered on and this time it worked. it powered on and stayed running however as it first switched on there was a small crackle and a few sort of spit noise's, and a small smell of burning.
I then maybe took a gamble and plugged one of my gfx cards back in and again the pc turned on, it booted up and i got into windows. Everything does seem fine (with NO o/c on cpu or gfx) and i have tried some bf3 to load up psu and it seems fine.
I am assuming due to all of this that the issue is with the PSU. its a 3 week old OCZ ZX 1250w.
I have now plugged in my second gfx card and again everything seems fine (with NO o/c) and bf3 is running fine at ultra with low temps.
Do you think its safe to be using my pc? or should i just leave it off now and return my PSU for a replacment/new one. maybe this was just a hiccup and will be fine?
Im just SO happy that my mobo/cpu hasnt fried.
