Exclamation Power Failure

I've built a computer for one of my buddies and I'm supposed to return the finish product by the end of the week. I worked on it all day yesterday and it seemed to be working fine. I uploaded some programs on it which prompted restart and it did so without problems. However when I shut down and then preceeding to turn it back on it ran for about 5 seconds and then kicked off (before POST finished-no beep). I noticed that the CMOS battery was not in place which was weird cause I know it had to be for me to have booted originally. So I replaced the batt and turned it back on- worked fine after I configured the BIOS again. I got up this morning and swtiched it on and it happend again (5 sec then shut down) except this time the battery was in place. Any ideas? (i checked the jumper on CMOS its in normal position however I didn't use the jumper clear ram setting when I put the batt back in could this be a possible cause? Also below the clr ram jumpers are some jumpers for the chassis which settings are nowhere to be found in MOBO manuel could this be a possible cause?)
