Computer starts up, and then shuts down right after?
Hey guys, i didn't know exactly where to make this thread, as i couldnt find one that specified my problems. So one night when i got home, my computer was shut down, so i started it up, and five seconds later it shuts down. I have repeatedly tried turning it on but it doesnt work, except for a couple times. During those couple times, if it actually gets to my desktop screen, my monitor freaks out and makes like, a screen with squiggly lines all over it I have tried using a different power supply power cord. that got it nowhere. I tried putting a different power supply in, that just made it worse, and the voltage on each was the correct one for USA. I'm really confused, and dont know what to do from here. I'm open to all solutions, (hopefully most aren't money consuming) and please help. Thanks, Nic. PS: Desktop computer.

Is there a CMOS reset on your motherboard? Check the Manual.
If not, just unplug the power cord and remove the 3V Small flat battery and leave it out for a good 30 seconds.
If the issue still persist, there is a problem.
so of course, with my luck. I can't get the battery out D: is thee like a special way, the battery for the motherboard is wrapped in a sorta black circular thing..
