Question When I reset the CMOS on my Motherboard, it gets power for 1 second, powers down, powers back up but no post/BIOS.

Firstly, the specs.

First of all, the specs:

Motherboard: Asus Prime H410M-A
Chip: Intel i3 101000
Power Supply: Corsair CX750 M

These are all that are connected at the moment...

The story:

I upgraded my GTX 1060 with a brand spanking new MSI 3060 TI. To get in in my case, I had to move my 2 hard drives (A 120 GB SSD and a 2GB Traditional.) down to the bottom of the rack. After plugging everything in, I started the computer back up. The fans spun up for 1 second, then powered down, then powered back up with what sounded like a warning buzz, but no post beep.

Well, thinking that was odd, I removed everything. Card, drives, memory chip, all but the CPU. Turned it on. Got power to the fans. No Post beep. So I decided to reset the CMOS (This included removing the battery and shorting the CMOS posts). Plugged it back in and started it. Powered up for 1 second, powered down, powered up with the warning screech, no post.

This is repeatable. Every time I short the CMOS posts to clear it, The fans spin up for 1 second, then powered down, then powered back up with what sounded like a warning buzz, but no post beep.

I am stumped. This SOUNDS like an issue with the BIOS, but not sure how to fix it.

Odd update....

So it did''t do this before, but NOW after pulling everything out and putting everything back, I get video on the old 1060. So do we think its a bad GPU?
