Default Weird Power Issue And Bios Error.

For some reason when I hit the power button on my computer (Which is new) it does turn on, just no picture on the monitor and no harddrive noises but the lights are on and everything.
So I hit the reset button on my tower, that makes it start right up,
any ideas why this is happening?.

Also sometimes when I start up my computer it says something about the Cmos/GPNU CheckSum being bad, so I replaced the Cmos Battery, that stopped it from resetting my bios everytime I got that error.

Any help would be great thanks.

PS: In the bios error it also says something about my Hard Drive being fixed.
