Default computer problems

hello all, been a while

where to begin.. a few weeks ago my pc started shutting down sometimes and giving me a cmos error, then when i try to reboot and go into my bios it would show to be trying to boot off my storage drive instead of my OS drive. i switched them back and it booted up and started working fine, now its doing it more and more often and today it wouldnt boot windows at all even though i switched the drives back in my bios, and i also noticed it was resetting everything in my bios, including my boot priority, date/time, and everything else, so i thought i may need to change my cmos battery. Right now its keeps trying to power on, my case lights are coming on for about 1-2 seconds every 10 seconds or so but it goes right back off. which makes me think this could be a power supply issue, any ideas?

Upton, he already knows that. And you don't need to underline it.
