So I've been messing around with my problematic comp for awhile. If it turns off, I need to remove the bios battery so I can restart it. Once it is started, it is normally okay.

But the other day I came home and it was off. When I went to restart it, it made it to the Windows loading screen and then shut-off. I can get it into safe mode, and mess around with it there, and after safe mode it went into normal mode, but only for a couple minutes before it blue screened and powered off.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Well...I don't know if it will help...but if removing the CMOS battery allowed it to start, then said battery probably needs to be replaoced.

Once replaced, boot into BIOS, set clock and invoke the default settings.

replacing the battery didn't do much, i still have to pop it out everytime i reboot. i think my windows is corrupt, or its something to do with the motherboard, just a feeling.

Well...I cannot logically think of any way that the CMOS battery should otherwise influence system functionality.

The CMOS battery is the key to proper recognition of system hardware by Windows...I would expect a system to be unable to boot without it (but I could be wrong).

My guess is that you have a hardware peoblem of some sort, you may want to explore that in the Internal Hardware forum here at BC.

You mentioned it bluescreen in safemode too. Most likely a hardware problem as reported by hamluis. Have you tried re applying thermal paste for CPU, cleaning the dust or dirt internally?How about borrowing another PSU of same or great wattage and swapping out RAM module? It might also be that the computer is experiencing overheat.
