    PC shut down after time change..

    It happened just now - I noticed that the system clock was showing the wrong time, so I*went to clock
    and set it to internet time (I chose the second option in the list) - it reset to the correct time, but then
    immediately afterwards the screen filled with little green and red squares and the system froze solid..

    Now it won't restart.. (??)

    I can't get Windows 10 to load.. I can reach*BIOS, but the system wont boot from there..
    I suspect there is a faulty connection somewhere in the case.. the reset and the main on-switch don't function..

    Wrong time suggests CMOS battery if CMOS is wrong it may not boot

    - the problem seems to be*hardware related..
    - I'm going to do strip-down and rebuild, to see if I can find any faulty connections..

    - Samuria, your suggestion about the battery is interesting..
    - I have done a mobo reset, via the jumpers..
    - I may well replace the battery as part of the search process..

    - cheers..
