Question about Matsonic MS8137C Motherboard
I am going to go out on a limb here and infer that when you try to power up the machine you get nothing - no lights, no display no beep. If this is the case then this would be symptomatic of a failed power supply, however the problem may not start or end there it is also sympomatic of a failed MB.
A good power supply will sacrafice itself to protect reliant components if there is a power spike, a "budget" one will pass the damage on.
In answere to your first question about the CMOS battery you are correct.
Basicaly buy a new power supply and don't buy budget but having done that don't be suprized if the MB has gone as well. Worse news is if you do have to change the MB depending on the age of your system you may have replace the CPU as well.
Sorry about the bad news, all I can offer on the positive side is that electrical equipment is usualy covered under a home and contents insurance package or a lease/rental agreement.
Hope this helps.
