When the C-mos battery dies it will cause the time within the Bios and windows to be wrong and any bios options set wont be save but you would still be able to boot up. Try a different c-mos battery just to test it out.

Could be CPU indeed. Did you try swapping parts with your other PC, since you have another LGA775, according to your specs.

If and when a CPU burns out without fan depends. It is possible that if it's just running idle like that, the CPU survives. Even under load, the CPU might last for quite some time (you definately notice slowdown when the CPU starts throttling in an attempt to stay cool enough).

In my experience, if the batter on the mobo dies, the board won't turn on at all.

I agree. If it just dies and you replace it in a short time span, settings might still be saved. However, if dead for a while, CMOS will be cleared completely, since it needs the power from the battery to retain its information.

Even with new battery, it might not work. Check the mobo manufacturer if there is an emergency flash procedure. Often there are methods that even if the CMOS is clear, you can boot to a floppy with a new BIOS, so you can flash. Otherwise, a new CMOS chip might be in place, but I would not go that route until you have completely disqualified any other cause.

I have a suggestion

You say it's a generic PSU, in the back of the PSU there should be a red switch. If it's on the wrong setting the computer will turn on but no signal will be sent to the monitor everything else might look like it's working but no signal will be sent. This happened to me on my first build and I was freaking out that I broke something.

Whatever setting it is on, push the switch to the other side and it should be working properly. If there is no switch on the back side then I have no clue what the problem is, but this definately sounds like a PSU problem

The red switch is the voltage selector. Be careful with that one. Do make sure it's in the correct position.

Good luck

I couldn't remember what it was btu that can be the cause of a new computer not running, depending on where you are located and where the PSU was made.

It should be on 115V

Does Australia also have 115V?
