So I recently had this problem, my pc won't post unless I reset CMOS every damn time. When I turn it on, the fans and lights would turn on then it would shut down and turn on again,
then the fans and lights would just keep spinning, the GPU Fans doesn't spin though. I know that my PC would post if the GPU fans will run.

So I reset CMOS, then I power it up, every fans would spin including the GPU Fan, it says press F1 to go to bios or F2 to continue, then if I press F2, it'll go black screen then my pc would shut down then not post again,
but if I press F1 and just exit without doing anything on the bios it would work, but if I shut down the PC and turn on again, fans would spin again except for the GPU and it won't post.

But here's the thing, if I got to desktop and it works, I can restart my pc with no problem, but only if I shut it down that's when it won't post again.

Things I've tried:
Move RAM to other slots
Removed GPU
Reseat CPU Cooler
Flash BIOS to a newer version
Replace CMOS battery using the older one in my other computer (I replaced it with the same brand though, don't know if it'll work if I tried it with another brand.)
Clear the CMOS using the JBAT1

Intel Core i5 4570 @3.4Ghz
MSI B85-G43 Gaming
