is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.
Blue screens are normally critical errors. If you have loaded any new hardware to your computer lately or some software packages you will need to uninstall them.
Try starting windows in safe mode by pressing F8 continuoulsy until you hear a beep. This will start the computer in safe mode and everything will look big on the screen, ignore that for now. While you are in safe mode uninstall anything that you have loaded prior to this error. Be it software or hardware.
If you have not loaded anything recently then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when you know that it was working with now problems.
Once safe mode boots go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was running okay. Once the restore has taken place the computer will reboot. If asked what mode you want to start in choose start windows normally.
Hopefully this will help you resolve your problem.
the two issues you mention, the first, no cmos battery fitted, why not?, there should always be a cr2032 cmos battery fited as this is how all the settings for your initial P.O.S.T and all saved bios settings are saved so as to boot into windows, so you must have the battery in, thats why there is a problem with thepower settings, again because the motherboard needs the settings to know what to start looking for.
Secondly i would say that there is a driver issue, either with any peripheral that may be connected via usb or because of a motherboard driver problem with the network connector on the motherboard, so check all your drivers.
