Diagnosing a problem probably on the motherboard -no picture

    I have a (second) computer with a gigabyte ga-p55m-ud2 motherboard.

    The computer is used for the Internet and Office and there are no complaints.

    A few days ago I started having a problem with the power on, and I can't hear the beep from the motherboard after which the picture comes up and the situation stays the same and the screen doesn't turn on.

    At first I thought it was a video card problem, I swapped a card with replacement, moved it to the second video card slot with no success.

    I tried a friend's advice to unplug and reconnect the battery on the motherboard and it didn't help either, and finally while playing, what solved the problem was disconnecting the power supply cable that connects to the motherboard (written next to it ATX and PCB)

    The thing is, the problem is very often repeated, if I'm not mistaken, even if the computer is not in use and goes into sleep it doesn't wake up and restart doesn't solve the problem without disconnecting and reconnecting this cable.

    Does the problem on the motherboard and is it actually dying? Because if it is a motherboard problem, it is not something that can be repaired / financially worth repaired / or within the warranty.

    Maybe somehow it's a lot simpler (hope) and it ends up replacing the battery or something simple....
