Computer will not boot. Error-Hardware monitor found error

Specs: Windows XP, Unk / 2 Giga bits
I have a Sony VGC-RB40 that will not boot. One morning nothing when front panel power switch pressed. Replaced power supply and battery. Still nothing. Jumped 24 pin motherboard connector at Green and Black wires. Fans came on at full RPM. Press front panel power switch and computer boots to error message stateing all temperatures to high and all voltages out of specifications and to press f2 for Bios Setup or f1 to ignore .

Replaced power supply and battery.
My guess is u bought cheapo PSU. Borrow PSU from a working machine to see if it will operate well.
Enter BIOS and check CPU and system temperatures

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

If this is a desktop and you replaced the 'battery' then you replaced the CMOS battery. After doing this, you need to go into the BIOS set up and reset defaults, go back in and set time, date, boot drive, boot order, and probably a few others, depending on the motherboard/BIOS.
On a desktop, everything relies on the power supply, like kuwese hints at, do not cheap out when it comes to power supplies. While you do not need the most expensive, a little bit of careful shopping can get you a really decent power supply for only a reasonable amount more than the cheapest out there.

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