I have posted this problem before, is the fact that i can not boot my pc because the Bios battery is dead?

No, the battery will not stop your computer from booting. It only holds the BIOS settings. You may be asked to enter the date and time each time you switch on and you may not have any sound or other drivers that are incorporated on the motherboard. What do you get when you switch on? What operating system are you using. I take it you are using someone else's computer to post this thread?
If you have posted this before can we have a link please?

It could be PSU or the CPU or motherboard or memory but the first thing to check is the PSU = Power Supply
