any local computer store or radio shack will have a replacment cmos battery there a standard part. with the no power is more likly that the computers power supply failed. if you have a spare or know someone that has one you can use for testing that help you pinpoint what failed on your computer. the other issue it could have been dusk or a fan failure and you overheated the cpu and cooked it.

Well, you can try getting out parts and see if it makes a difference.

First, take out the video card if you have one, and use the integrated one on the motherboard.

Then the memory, one by one. See if you get any beep if there's no memory at all.

If you can test your hdd in another machine, that's a good thing too, but it's not likely it would cause this.

Can you smell anything around the computer? Any smoky smell from the PSU? Try another PSU if you can.

Replace the PSU (power supply unit). It is shorting out and not powering the system proper. You can get a PSU tester rather cheap... One other possible scenario is the PSU isn't making proper contact with the MoBo. Check to make sure all connections are connected.

Oh, any place that sells watch batteries should carry your CMOS Battery. Places like Wal*Mart, CVS, Walgreen's, etc... I avoid Radio Shack, they are over priced...
