There is a small silver disk that provides power to the BIOS for things like maintaining the time

If you want to bring it over, I will help you troubleshoot it

Check the caps on the motherboard, If you see any of them having a black residue on top, then it's your motherboard. Usually with no beeps and a new powersupply that is what is leading me to believe.

You know you can format the hardrive and load XP from your disk. My company buys vista computers and then overwrites them.

Since they make those computers right there at Microcenter, they would likely do it for you with their own vista.
