This is what I want you to do--I'm afraid Fenor used an old IT trick that does not work with this motherboard.
Turn off the computer
NOW, REMOVE THE BATTERY AGAIN
NOW, you need to move the jumper that is just to the right of the battery from the 1-2 pin to the 2-3 pins for about 2 seconds
Now, move the jumper back to 1-2 pin
NOW replace the battery
Plug in the cord
Turn on the PC and HOLD DOWN THE DEL key until you enter bios
Restore your bios settings from before.
SAVE and REboot

By the way, when I plug in the power cord and flip the power switch on in the back of the PC, is it normal for the computer to automatically turn on without pressing the power button in the front? I don't remember it doing so in the past, but that's what it's been doing since this restart problem began.

Yes that was the correct jumper it should be labled CLRTC1 check just to be sure, use a magnifying glass if nessesery, CLRTC1 will be printed next to it.
It could be the power switch on the case is bad, to check for this you will need your manual (download from asus website if you don't have printed version).
In the manual turn to chapter 2 page 28, you should be looking at "system panel connector (20-pin CTRL_panel 1)"
Print this page if you are viewing online
Note ATX Power Switch on the diagram on the right and now note its location on the motherboard in the diagram on the left.
Power down the computer.
Remove the 2 connections labled ATX power switch in the diagram, these will be labled PWR and GND on the motherboard. Use a magnifing glass they are labled. BE CAREFULL these 2 connections could be cable tied to the other wirers that connect to the system panel and you don't want to remove them so cut the cable tie if necessary.
Now touch the 2 pins the the wirers were connected too with a screw driver for a second and release, this will power on the computer, and hopefully into windows.
If you can now shut down normally the power switch on the case is bad.

Yes if the switch on the power supply is turned off it is just like pulling the plug.
If you remove the case switch wirers/connectors and the computer powers on when you plug it in then the motherboard must have some problems.
You should also try removing the reset switch wirer/connectors also

The case switch connector is the power switch connector you removed a couple of posts ago. When the reset switch is removed, it will help narrow down whether the connectors themselve are bad (meaning your computer stops rebooting itself) or the motherboard is bad (meaning your computer continues rebooting itself). Once the restart/reset switch is removed, try turning on your computer and see if you can't get to the desktop now.
Where's the case switch connector? And what do I do when I remove the restart switch connector?
