My System Specs

Default

Honestly, less than 3% is the CPU the problem when it comes to a broken PC. If you say that it shuts off before reaching the BIOS then it's not the CPU cause a malfunctioning CPU, wouldn't even make the the screen go on. I say it's a faulty BIOS. I've looked at the mobo's website and it seems you can reset the CMOS by the jumpers on the bottom right side of the mobo, if you short the jumpers (according the manual anyway) you will make all the BIOS configurations and date reset to factory default. If you lack a jumper you can use a screwdriver and with it touch the two pins.
