Most likely... defective cpu

Stop error message in Windows XP that you may receive: "0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x00000000, 0xb2000000, 0x00020151)" (it's for winxp but actually the same)
read "cause" and "more information"

I KNOWWWWWWW...it's the only thing left...if the new CMOS battery doesn't work...this looks like the next thing. I haven't found anyways to test the CPU, unless I'm blind, other than plan old troubleshooting, correct?

UPDATE: Pulling the CMOS battery again worked...this time I did not touch anything in the bios and let it go into Startup Repair...it BOOTED!!! So as of right now it is "attempting repairs..." cross my fingers! I AM GOING TO GET A FRESH NEW BATTERY!!

It's almost impossible to test cpu. you're right ... plain old troubleshooting.

startup repair works... nice. From dvd I assume?
I think it doesn't find errors. Because it's a hardware error

WHOOOOO HOOOO! It's booted. No the Startup repair was from the hard drive! I did a system restore and that was it! It's running like a champ! The battery on the MOBO was pretty old and I read if it's older than 3 years it can cause all kinds of crazy crashes! Thanks for the input guys! I love when it's a labor easy and only a $3 fix! Trouble shooting is a PITA, but I'm happy with the outcome!

"startup repair" didn't fix anything.... nothing on disk was malfunctioning.
