No, there is not really a fire. But there could be.

So my computer is having an issue or two.

Sometimes it 'turns off' by itself, or restarts.

Other times when it 'turns off' it actually just shuts off the display and it sounds like some of the fans actually turn off but the power button still shines blue!

Another issue I've noticed is sometimes when it turns itself off, it takes me to the bios screen (guessing they reset) and when I turn it back on my date and time is set back to 2007.

I don't overclock or do anything technical like that. It was a factory built computer and all I did was put in a new video card or two.

So after doing some reading it sounds like it could be a numerous amount of problems, from over heating to faulty power supply?

One time I did try and fix this problem, I just reset the BIOs myself or whatever I did by taking out of CMOS (?) battery [lol I lost it behind my case took awhile to get it out] for a few minutes and putting it back in. Could I need a new battery?

Any help would be appreciated. Smile

Sounds more like a combination of dead cmos battery and failing psu. When the psu fails, the bios doesn't have the battery charge to save the information. I would hit up CVS for a new cmos battery and newegg for a new power supply.
