    Might check and see if there is some type of removable media (like a USB flash drive, ir a SD card) plugged in to it somewhere. If so, the computer may be trying to boot from it instead of the hard drive.

    After this it will power off again and be stuck in an endless loop.

    I have pulled RAM, HDD, Speakers, USB, I even pulled the BIOS battery out to reset the BIOS.
    I also tried the restore backup BIOS but this did not work.

    I am thinking that the motherboard has died?

    Thanks,

    Bob
    No beeps. Time for a new one.

    Two reasons:
    - Your thermal isolation in your processor in getting worn out - time for the new one $20
    - Your BIOS battery is flat/dead
