Specs: Windows 7
Hi, My computer keeps powering on by it self, the only way to stop it from powering on is to unplug the power cable.It powers on to the, "press del to enter bios" then it shuts back down.
I can't enter the bios.I replaced my psu and cmos battery, and also cleared the cmos.
It's still doing the same thing.

I hope someone can help me

You can't enter BIOS, why? Is it PW protected or you just cannot get into the BIOS?

If it's the latter, your BIOS is corrupt, or something is wrong with the MOBO.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

I just can't enter the bios screen, its because it shuts down right before i can press the del key.

I also hear 1 post beep that sounds normal.

I hope someone can help me, please reply.

Thanks for the reply pc geek.

I found out what the problem is, its the power sw cable that is plugged in my motherboard.

If i unplug the power sw cable the computer will not start up by it self.
When i plug the power sw cable in, it turns on by it self.

How do i fix this problem?

The Power sw cable is the connector to the front power switch on your case and it will not start without this plugged in at all so I think that this is not your real answer. Sorry.

If you cannot stay on long enough to reach the BIOS set up then you need to look to:
Bad memory.
Heat sink not properly attached to CPU or no or old thermal compound.
Power supply not supplying proper voltages or underpowered for newly added hardware.
Bad or incorrect hardware or missing auxiliary power connector for newly upgraded video card.
Bad hard drive (try unplugging and see if you can access BIOS set up).
Inspect motherboard for burnt or bulging parts like the row of capacitors.
Just to name a few.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The case button for the power switch may be stuck inwards.

The switches used for a desktop power or reset switch are extremely reliable, especially the power switch. They're both the same type of switch on ATX cases - momentary contact - on only when pressed in. You can connect the reset switch to the pins for the power switch and visa versa.
However, sometimes the case button that presses on the switch can get stuck such that it's always pressing on the switch enough that it's on all the time. In that case, the mboard will shut off about 4 seconds after the switch has been pressed when the button wasn't stuck initially then becomes stuck, and the mboard will not start up again until the button has been un-stuck

Or in your case.....
- if the button is stuck inwards, the computer will start up after the AC power to it has been removed when the computer has AC power again, then the mboard will shut off in about 4 seconds,
- if the button is still stuck inwards, the mboard will not start up again until you unplug the PS, plug it back in.
