  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
    Sounds like the CMOS battery (watch battery type thing) on the motherboard needs replacing. It also sounds a little as though the power supply may need replacing or possibly your front panel power switch. I would start by replacing the CMOS battery and seeing where that gets you.
    Good luck.
