DELL DIMENSION 5150 SOMETIME WILL NOT SWITCH ON

I HAVE POWER TO THE COMPUTER AND SOMETIMES IT WILL NOT START UP,IF I LEAVE IT TILL THE NEXT DAY, IT IMAYBE START, SO ITS A HIT OR MISS TO USE IT.
IF IT DOES START A BLACK SCREEN COMES UP TELLING ME THAT SOME FLOPPY DISC DRIVE NEEDS CONFIGUIRED AND THE DATE AND TIME NEED RESET, I INSERTED A NEW BATTERY THREE WEEKS AGO AND IT STILL WILL NOT ACCEPT THE NEW DATES AND TIME.
I JUST PRESS THE FI KEY TO GO AHEAD AND USE THE COMPUTER, BUT WHEN I SHUT DOWN ITS HOPING IT WILL RESTART WHEN I NEED IT AGAIN

You need to get into the bios of your system and setup the date, time, and disable floppy boot. You may also want to clean any/all dust/dirt/hair from your system and make sure your fans are working. Sounds like your cmos battery failed (you changed that) and that your processor/motherboard is failing due to overheating

Dell Dimension 5150 Boot Problems!


You can probably try two things here.

1) Go to the BIOS and reset the defaults.
2) Clear NVRAM from your Dell computer. Here is how you do it.

Dell Dimension 5150 does not start


Could be a number of things, First take the ram out and then put it back in and see if that helps. next I would unplug any devices not required to start the computer.
You need to be familiar with the inside of the computer to do this.
Most likely suspect however is the power supply.
