    Try removing the motherboard battery (maybe even change it for new) to reset CMOS, then after say 10mins replace and reboot and try and enter the BIOS and check that date and time and boot sequence is ok.

    While inside the PC, take out the ram and then plug it/them back in as one maybe loose, and check any other connectiosn HDDs, Video card etc
