A bad BIOS update perhaps;
Your BIOS version is shown as follows;

Unfortunately you can only update the BIOS to a later version and once done it cannot be undone, that is why it is a last resort, a bad BIOS flash hoses the MB.
Can I ask why you updated the BIOS and was it after the update that the problem started.

I don't think it was after the problem started, I think I did it to try and fix the problem.
**Edit** Reading online it says you can just overwrite the bad bios with a different version?

Is this what you're looking for?
Simply restore corrupted BIOS data from USB flash disk
The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a USB flash disk containing the BIOS file. This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip.

Yep, but was looking for a step by step + hoping to find an update as opposed to a previous version, an article that I found that goes some way to explaining how to get back to a previous version here

OK. Just reviewed the topic, a few points.
No confirmation that you have cleared the CMOS. Reply #48 shows your RAM O?C, seems to confirm BOIS not at Defaults.
In Speccy, the CMOS batter shows low, 1.644v, this should be changed, which will clear the CMOS then, at boot enter the BIOS, set the date and time, go to the exit screen, press F10, click OK on the confirmations screen. The computer will reboot to the desktop.
Go to Add Remove Programs, please uninstall Overwolf Updater Task. You may need to restart the computer.
See if we can get some info from the event Logs,
Go > Start > click Run. Copy and paste eventvwr in the open box, > click OK.
The Event Viewer window will open, > make it full screen.
> click the Applications Tab, then take a screenshot.
> click the Systems Tab, then take a screenshot.
Look in the Systems window for any errors, > Double click the last error listed. Take a screenshot.
> Click the link "For more information blah blah"
> Click Yes in the window the opens.
You will go to a help page giving an explanation for the error, if known, is it of any help?
Lower down the page, see, User Action, anything listed?.
Please include the three screenshots in your next reply.
I think there are a couple more steps to try but looking to me like a fresh install as the hardware tests OK.

**Edit** I have uninstalled Overwolf. I will attach the screenshots. As for the error, there were no results found on the Microsoft website.
When buying a new cmos battery, does the brand matter or is it okay if the model and voltage are the same? Current battery - Newsun 3v Lithium cr2032

Hi, just to pop in if I may till immykyl gets back to you.
The batter should definitely be changed and no it doesn't matter who made it, the important thing is the number 2032. The correct voltage for those batteries is 3 volts, so the present one is only around half the correct value.
iammykyl will possibly know a bit more about that hardware error.
