Error Messages: Barrery is low



My sister's PC won't boot up when a warning message saying battery is low. After replacing the battery, tried to boot up the PC but nothing happened i.e. nothing is displayed before window. There is power and hard/floppy is being read then everything went quiet. I just connect the PC to a monitor, key board and mouse to test. Any suggestion to fix this?

No. Just found out the pentium 3 processor fan is not working, but the processor heatsink is getting warmer after a few minutes. Could this problem caused by the processor not working? How can one tell the processor is not working?

I would replace the cpu fan. The cpu is probably working but overheating and causing your system to crash
