Probably just a batch of batteries that have been sitting too long before being installed and there it is between the pci slots...easy to get to(just like changing a watch battery). Good luck with this issue, sounds like a reasonable machine to me and the fact they took care of the ram is a good sign (hardware failures can and do occur...usually reasonably soon after install or new pc startup (this has been my experience....if it doesn't fail in the first 60 days it will usually last a long time)).

It might also just be not locked into it's holder correctly...
The easy way to find out is to lift it out and snap it back in. If the problem goes away, they're all set.

Thought I fixed the problem but it's back again.. Screen froze on a black screen while I was asleep. Didn't respond to anything so I had to do a hard-shutdown. Proceeded to hit the power button to boot it back up... nothing, did not power up at all, although the motherboard light was on so it's definitely getting power. Went afk, about 10 to 15 minutes later the PC powered itself up but the monitor wasn't getting a signal. Had to hard reboot again. Same thing all over again. PC shut off, hit power button, 10ish minutes later it powers on. "No Signal" on the monitor.

Tried it again... Hard shutdown, hit power button, 10 minutes later it powers on. Monitor loads up this time and I get the "CMOS SETTINGS WRONG" "DATE/TIME NOT SET" screen. Hit F2, desktop loads up, I start up firefox, then the computer seems to stop responding. The mouse cursor moved around fine, although nothing seemed to be loading up or responding. CTRL+Shift+Escape.. nothing. Hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and it took me to a pure black screen and stayed there. Had to hard shutdown again....

Anyone know what the problem could be? I replaced the CMOS battery a few weeks ago and it wasn't have any trouble until today. Maybe it's another bad battery or not seated right? Although that's hard to believe. Or could it be something else since it takes so long just to decide to power up?

Thanks again

Just replaced the CMOS battery again. Didn't seem to help anything. PC doesn't seem to want to power up at all now.

Edit: It powered on like an hour after I messed with it... ugh

Update: Computer is powering up fine now, although it's still giving me the CMOS SETTINGS WRONG DATE/TIME NOT SET message on boot. Even though I've changed the cmos battery twice..
