PC not turning off/starting up properly & clock not updating

    I am running Win XP Home edition & whenever I shutdown the PC it just
    restarts, I have done a google search & tried a few things (going into BIOS
    & changing things in there & also tried Wizmo) but nothing helps.

    I have also noticed that when starting the PC up the fan starts but nothing
    else happens only by holding the button in for 5 secs to turn off the fan &
    then turning it on again does it actually start, it then goes into the scan
    disk then starts Windows but the date & time are not correct it shows the
    date & time the computer was last on.

    Is this a problem with a battery somewhere? would that cause all 3 of these
    symptoms?

    TIA

    Thanks for that, just didn't remember seeing a battery last time it was
    opened up, but then I suppose I wasn't looking for one!

    Do you think that will solve the Start-up & Shutdown problems as well?

    The battery is to fix the time problem.

    Just a note to say thanks, I finally got around to changing the battery
    today & everything works perfectly, even the Start-up & Shutdown problems
    are solved so it must have been the battery affecting that as well. Thanks
    again for the help.
