  1. as soon as i put power to the power supply the computer starts without any connections to the front pannel switch and resets the bios as if i pulled the cmos battery out, mobo FIC, k8mc51g 754 socket with an a-power 680 watt power supply not what the board used from the factory im sure,im wondering if the factory power supply had wires and connector to the board like a system fan or somthing to keep the main 20 pin connector from starting the flow of power through the boaed

    a dead cmos battery seems to be the problem ,charged up the old one and now works fine
