Re: Dead computer after system shutdown. - Resolved for Now

I remember changing the cmos battery some years ago. Maybe time to do it again.

No storms preceding, during and after the described failure. Ups shuts down system after 30 seconds if there is a power failure.

My records show I assembled this box from components in 2008. Should I
be worried? Expected lifetimes of cpu, mb, power supply?

here we've had some power failures lately and the UPS
has let me shut down ok.
