I removed the silver coin battery for 30 seconds as you suggested carnageX and my computer has now booted! Putting the time/date back into the bios now.. hopefully this will be the end of it!
Massive thanks for your help guys!
No problem, glad to help.
If it happens again, then it may be another problem. Could try updating your BIOS (or checking to see if there is an update and what the update changelog is).
if it continues happening, then try the other thing I suggested (basic components).
