    Try taking the battery out and try just using the powersupply

    Could the fan and heatsink be clogged with dust?

    The powersupply could be checked to see it is supplying the correct voltage

    I wouldn't really suspect the Cmos battery.......did you notice the time changing on the PC before this happened?
