Windows 7: Bios not starting on power on/restart

Try reseating your graphics card and ensure the cable connections are firmly on too...

Intermittant faults are the hardest to pin down, but I don't think it's your BIOS...

That is true a weak battery won't stop from booting but once you are in there cleaning and checking things it would be a great time to replace the battery which most of us forget to do until it dies. Yes it could be a motherboard. If it was my computer I would try another power supply or have a local computer store test it for you. A power supply can provide power to some parts of the m/b and not to other parts.
