Hey Shukla, Try removing the CMOS battery and keep it out for 30+ mins and then insert it back. Try this first and let us know.

It seems like you tried to update the BIOS and it did not go well. If yes, Try this.

Unplug the power from PSU. Take out the CMOS battery and all unnecessary peripherals (Take out anything your PC doesn't need to boot. This includes card readers etc.). Unplug all the HDDs. Run the PC on just one RAM stick (if you have multiple RAM sticks). Only keep your keyboard plugged in.

Wait for BIOS to reset, put the battery back. Boot the machine, then go to BIOS settings, run Q-FLASH. Update the BIOS to latest version. Disable "LOAD CMOS DEFAULT".

Plug in all the devices back and then check.

As already mentioned above. BIOS is corrupted. If possible get updated BIOS file for your motherboard and update it with the steps mentioned.

I have updated the latest bios version ( from version F1 to version F3 ) on my motherboard with the help of @BIOS utility tool. Thanks for helping.!

Then it could be drained CMOS battery or dying PSU.

Or at least in other such cases I had the culprit was that. I hope others have better ideas.
