I am having trouble starting this system up, sometimes it will start but it is really pot luck. (when it does start, the whole system works fine).I've tried several opptions, but I cannot find a solution. Could it be the cmos battery ?

I had a similar problem with my 8685 see the thread. click here I found out some details from the HP site and FAQs which might be worth a try. It may be a PSU, as mine was, on its way out. I would not like to comment on the battery.

well I had exactly the same problem when I had my 7760 sometimes it would start othertimes not,I changed the cmos battery but I am sure its that crappy start up button it sticks and does not make proper contact(bad design),I stripped mine down and freed it off and its never been a problem again,my sister now has it and its been faultless ,BTW its worth changing the cmos battery anyway.
