Question GPU & iGPU will only give display after resetting CMOS ?

So, i have this weird issue for like weeks. The only way to force my PC to display any image, including post is to reset BIOS settings, or removing/inserting CMOS Battery. Easiest way is to hold power on button, my PC starts then turn off, then i press it again, and it seems like BIOS is reseted. But, i have to manually override boot to Windows, without changing anything in BIOS, i i change anything, restore defaults, save settings, then cycle starts again, no display whatsoever, neither on iGPU or dedicated GPU.

First i thought my GPU died, it was making sense, because it slowed down by like 70%. So few days ago i bought 3060ti, installed fresh windows etc. Nope, nothing changed. Then i replaced CMOS battery, still same situation. I didn't updated BIOS, because it is 10 years old mobo, and newest BIOS is the one i am using. Also, i am afraid to screw something for good, it wouldnt be so hard without any display whatsoever. Tried different PCI slot, cleaned unplugged and plugged everything, still, same issue.

So. in short; i reset cmos, get post message to change settings in bios, because overclocking error or something, F1 to get to bios then F8 to select boot device. If i change anything at this point, i have to reset bios again. if not then pc boots normally, everything works fine. But after turning off, to turn it on again I have to reset bios agian and boot directly by override.

my specs;
Asus P8-z68v rev 1.00, the oldest one
i5-2500k with
8gb ddr3
3060ti.
and windows 10 on ssd.

tried windows 7 because i hate 10, also there are no drivers for Windows 10 for my mobo, but with win7 the situation was exactly the same.
Funny thing is, i had the same problem few months ago and somehow i managed to fix it, but have no idea how. propably some bios changes. But now even getting to bios is a nightmare.
btw if i change boot from legacy to uefi then i stuck on asus logo. ssd is gpt partition system.
i will be replacing the whole system expept gpu in months, but i would like to be able to use my pc in these months.

How old is this PC and what PSU do you have ?
Unrelated but is your SSD >= 4tb ?
Most of the parts are about 10 years old, new GPU have about week, SSD 1TB about 1 month. Also yesterday my 2TB HDD died.
Psu is Silver Power sps-ss500, it have idk, more than 5 years.

I think it propably psu or mobo is starting to dying, i think i will get some good new 750 Gold psu in a week, and some cheap used mobo for my socket, to not have to worry that rest of my parts dies.

"EBAY" usually mean used, would advice to get something new. But some of the psu's from that site,

If any new pick that one above used. Cannot really tell since english doesn't seem an option and was already abit annoyed that you couldn't take the time to point to the psu page right away. Is an unneccesary search for me in a strange language.

It's fine, just next time asking for help with a specific part link the page it is on. Too bad these aren't new, cannot really tell which are or are not. It's an older list and not kept up to date but the next tier list is somewhat helpfull,
try to find something in tiers A or B. And if you want advice on what you find just ask.

Don't get that MSI PSU probably won't last long

You can get an EVGA on amazon.pl 550W for 558zt ~$115 and it'll last longer than a random used one from god knows where.
Why not MSI one? It is new, not used. Also it was A-Tier in that list posted few posts age. And a 550W is not enough for me.
