Hello everyone. Among the other problems I am having with my computer, now when I power up the psu the light on about the front panel button glows, but no fans turn and nothing happens. I reached in and moved the cmos battery and the fans started turning and the display came on any everything. But as soon as I let it go everything but the front panel power light turns on. Any Ideas? Anyone? I'm already having enough issues without this one to.

Best solution

check the little contacts that hold the battery, make sure they're not bent out of the way and not touching the battery.. maybe bend it just a bit so its a tighter fit.. just be careful lol.. dont break out a pair of vice grips =)
