    I built my Dad a computer last year, he had a right old pile of pre-built junk that he obviously got ripped off with, so I decided to secretly build him something fairly decent, I was very pleasantly surprised with the motherboard and would highly recommend it, it was an ASUS A88XM-Plus, I stuck in 8gb of HyperX, an A8-7620, 500gb Crucial M500 SSD, his original hard drive from his old machine in the end when I presented him with the machine.

    I reflashed the BIOS tonight using F7 again. I had already replaced the battery just as a precaution even though it worked fine in another mobo. Its back up and running tonight lol. Its mind boggling on why it will work and why it wont. I think im going with a ASRock A88M-G only because of the budget, and i know a few people that have the mobo and have had no issues with it. Id love to go ASUS, but the boards are a bit expensive and im not looking to buy him top notch cause its hes not a total PC player (loves the PS4). Again guys, thanks for the replies and trying to help out. Great community for sure.

    Should be a fine choice, build/quality-wise seems quite similar to my previous ASRock Z97 Pro3.

    It was as barebones a Z97 mobo as could be, yet worked perfectly and allowed overclocking the CPU to max potential without issues.
    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of a budget(ish) mobo.

    EDIT: just a thought but have you tried reseating the CPU? Take it out, check for bent pins in CPU or debris in socket, put it back.

    Before you order the new mobo ;)

    Did you order the new mobo? Report back if it helps :)

    Worst case scenario would be it was the CPU all along but unlikely.
    CPU flaws are usually either or, the system works or doesn't work. Irregular issues point more towards mobo I think (when RAM etc. are ruled out).

    I've had two CPU failures during PC building years and both times the same symptom:
    press power button and absolutely nothing happens as if PC was unplugged.

    It could also be the wall plug not delivering full proper power all the time. It's not as uncommon as people think. Could be the cause of the inconsistent results. Try a different plug.

    Been a busy weekend, but i must say its still very confusing since the PC has booted up without issue since Friday. I've turned it off and on about 30 times in the time period. I ended up adding the video card to the mix (RX 460) and still its booting up, playing games, and has not given me any issues. I've still yet to hear back from Gigabyte, and i find that kind of sad. I've tried to get in contact with them thru their site and on other social media they have. Have not bought the new mobo yet. Going to wait and see how things go once my son gets a hold of the PC and start using it on a regular basis. Again, id like to thank ANYONE thats replied for any kind of help or suggestions.

    Good to hear the problem hasn't come back yet.
    Looks like the battery was the culprit as nothing else changed or did I miss something? So please reinsert the old battery for testing purposes ;) J/k I wouldn't change a thing for the moment.

    My son has had the PC for almost a month, and its done the fast beeping 2 times. Both times, it did a cycle of beeps, restarted, and loaded up fine. Im just hoping everything holds off til i get some of my parts updated to hand down to him.

    Sorry for my last post, didn't think you were coming back...........
    Not sure why but Gigabyte boards seem to have the beeping boot loop issue(ever sense 775 socket), I have noticed certain PSU n Motherboards don't like to be used together(don't ask me why). If you have an issue again, id try swapping a different PSU see if this helps.
