    **sorry if in wrong area**

    yes i did a search (will not start,battery)and nothing

    pc will not turn on pressing the power button on pc (nothing happens)

    yes there is power to pc
    checked the power supply and all good readings
    checked diodes and capacitors all good on motherboard
    checked power button good
    battery tested and needs replacement voltage tester says battery needs replacing (just hitting the replace field)

    (have to wait till monday to get one. )

    Can the battery on the board cause this ?

    Try holding your power botton for >4 seconds. This sometimes will reset the power supply. Then push it as normal. Worth a try.

    Yes...sounds like the battery is first port of call.

    Presumably you have not recently upgraded any hardware or moved the power supply lead to the mobo etc ?
