      Put simply the M’Board is what everything sits on

      The CPU is what does all the computing work.

      RAM is the Storage Space that is Volitile so when the power goes out whatever was in the RAM disappears.

      Here from my understanding of your question you have added a Video Card with DDR3 RAM and the problem has started since this was added.

      This is a Straight Incompatability Issue where the Video Card is not fully compatable with the M’Board Chip Set.

      Why you have to remove the RAM and leave it for so long is beyond me as once the power goes out the unit should remain empty with nothing running but you do have to unplug the computer not just think that because it is not running that the Power is Off.

      With ATX Power Sup-plies they have a low voltage that is on 100% of the time the unit is plugged in so they are never fully turned off, A Ripple on this Power Line is what turns the unit on and off so it is always sending power into the unit while it is plugged in with the power turned on.
