Thank you for your time and for your answer.Fortunately,I have found the problem and fixed it.It was quite simple,all I had to do was plug the main HDD(running vista) into another port.It's been more than a week since I fixed my PC and so far no problems at all.Everything runs perfect.

Thank you again for your time!
