My mother turned her computer off, then she went to turn it on the next day and all it does is the power light comes on for about 5 seconds then the computer turns off. So the only way i can get any response is to unplug & plug the power cord, yes the fans are coming on then it shuts off. I can hear a beep like it's about to boot up right before it shuts off.

1.) I've tried a different power supply. (same issue)
2.) I've tried a different battery. (same issue)

Please help me fix mom computer, i can't afford the geek crew

Could be time for a new motherboard. I would check ebay or pricewatch. Cpuid will id your board to tell you what chipset to look for.
