    You can try a new cmos or as asus calls it RTC battery. It should be a 2032 battery available anywhere.

    I honestly doubt it will help. That board is going on 6+ yrs old now and most likely has a failing component. Have you inspected the board for any leaking capacitors? If not, get a bright light and do so. Look for any that look like the pics below.

    They seem to be fine. Maybe one or two could be considered to have a bulge, but that's all.

    What PCI cards are being used in your machine, might be worth trying to boot without any PCi devices connected to the MB
    Should manage to boot without them fine (especially if its a PCI error causing the issue)

    Power down machine,
    re-seat PCi cards (devices)

    during boot, keep pressing F8
    until boot option screen appears, use last known good configuration.

    Can't promise this will work, but when I have seen PCI IRQ routing errors on boot in other machines, this has done the trick in the past.

    If the tops are bulging, you have found your problem. It would not hurt to attempt to boot with all add-in cards removed except the video however I would put my money on a failing board. Nothing lasts forever and that board is 6yrs old.
