Gateway GT5228 Will NOT Startup

\015 I'm a newbie.I have a GT5228-4G RAM-750G Dual SATA HD DUAL DVD Burners - I press the start button and the harddrive and burners light come on. The fan runs quietly in the background. No startup. After shutting don a few times, the system gets a rush and starts up. I've tried just key board,mouse and monitor. same result. I tried unplugging the PSU and starting. The lights come on and the fan runs fast and hard. I still have to shutdown and restart numerious times before it starts. I did get the Phoenix Technologies screen telling me I was in Safe Mode and something about CPU units in CMOS. I changed the battery and reseated the connector over one pin as suggested by a tech to get the to startup in the initial bio default . (another posting) In 10 startups I might get that PT message twice. My daughter, who is more tech savy than me, had updated my drivers from the Gateway site. I'm not sure if that is exactly when the problems started, but it's close. I haven't reseated my memory yet. I,ve read that it could be a PSU or mobo problem.\015
