Sounds like the CMOS battery or the Power Supply. However if the motherboard was replaced, the tech SHOULD have had a new CMOS battery with it. It looks like a watch battery on the motherboard. If not then I would check/ replace the power supply with another appropriate supply, though I am not sure that the AC power supply would create the battery message. Check/replace the battery itself...should be something like a CR2025 or something like that. Picked up at Radio Shack or WalMart. If it is not this type, ask the manufacturer for a replacement, and the instructions to do so as it may require a jumper to be used during replacement. (Most cases do not require this).
First thing to do is to disable the option that computer automatically
restarts when a fatal error/system failure occurs. There is an option
inside windows for that, but in this case we can't do that. So what you
need to do is to press F8 before the Windows XP logo appears right
after the BIOS screen (just like what you do when you want to boot in
safe mode). This screen will appear:
Here are some of the steps to you can reboot your pc without using a keyboard:
1) Long press the power button - Press the power button for about 3-5 seconds. If the power LED or power supply fan shuts off, that means you have successfully turn off your pc. Press it again to turn on.
2) Unplug the power cord from the power supply - Force your pc to shutdown by unplugging the power cord from the power supply of your pc. Put it back again and press power button to turn on.
Note: Please make sure you have saved important activities before doing this as this will immediately turn off your pc.
It's the processor or power supply. I cant be sure of which without checking it.
Check the fan over the processor heat sink to make sure its working cause it could mean that the processor is overheating If the fan turns and then it cuts off this could meant that the processor is dead. or the bios is corrupted. Try flashing the bios, there is a battery on the main boad, remove it. unplug the system first... when the battery is out press and hold the power button for 10 seconds then release. put the battery back in and try to turn it on..
If that fails then try a new power supply or one from another system to to check if the power supply is fine. YOu can aslo bridge the green and any black wire from the power supply's mainboard connector to see if the power supply runs. If all this fails then you may need to replace your processor,, I';d also recommend changing the power supply as well.
