dell 8600 shutting off by it self

Will I thought I had whipped this problem, I guess I have not.
I have found that when I remove one of the 1GB memory cards it will not shut down.

It does not matter which Card I use one at a time it is fine and runs without shutting down, just as soon as I put the other 1GB card in it will shut down in about 2 to three minutes.

I think if you have only one module you can only use it in the A or first slot or it will not function.

I have no idea where the bios battery is, I have looked all over the board and I don't see one.
The only battery is the main battery, there is no backup batter in the case in the battery box.

I know in the device manager it shows two Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Batteries listed. I know there is something that keeps the clock going, but where I don't know. I have looked in the service manual and I do not see anything listed

I still do not see where the bios or cmos battery is located, if you are talking about the pocket in the main battery box, this for a battery backup and I do not have one there.
If this is where the cmos battery should be located and since I don't have one there, just a connector where it should be connected, why is my  date and time still stays correct when I take out the main battery and disconnect the ac power?
