Computer powers up...then back down; no POST beeps or anything

Whenever I start my computer the everything (except the small fan on the motherboard itself, that hasn't worked for a while though) starts up like normal for about 3 seconds. Then it all shuts back off. The first time this happened I played with the battery on the motherboard a little bit and after that the computer went back to working, but only half the time. I decided that it was the battery so I bought a new one and put it in and then the computer started up fine ~5 times. Now (after going ~8 hours off) it's doing the same thing it did before.
Anyone know what this is? Bad motherboard?
