Can't use memtest because the machine won't post, so the bios isn't there to see the burner to boot to.

The battery is 10.4V. But, I have given up on it. I can't seem to find what is wrong. I tested the prongs that charge the battery and I received 3.39V across the 3 positives. The inside was clean. I switched out the memory and up them in one at time and it does the same. CMOS battery is still 3V. So, I give. As long as I can transfer all of my info once I get a new one I'll be good.

Take the hard drive out, put it in a usb enclosure and transfer your data via a usb port. The enclosures are cheap today. Leave the drive in the enclosure and format it when you are done transferring all your data, then use it for backup.
