    Do you have another motherboard so you can test if the problem indeed lies in the motherboard?
    Unfortunately, replacing the motherboard is so far I know the only way to check if the problem is with the motherboard.
    Unfortunately the only other motherboard I have is about 7+ years old and is probably not compatible. Should I take it to a repair shop? If I do it will be expensive just to find out the problem.

    You could, the best is to take it to the shop where you bought it because of the warranty.
    In most cases when there is something defective they will replace it for free, but in some very rare cases you have to pay a little bit for something special.

    By the way, have you checked the cables if there is something loose? It is 1 the first things you should check with hardware.

    I checked the cables to the hard drive, re seated the ram, and replaced the graphics card. Any other cables I need to check? Also I have moved away from the store that I bought it from and I believe my computer has been off the warranty for about a year.

    There are no cables that I would think of that needs a check.
    Or you have a good friend from who you can borrow a motherboard (which is compatible) or you'll have to go to the shop.

    Hmm you might want to change the BIOS Battery if it is dying you would have the same symptons.
    Are you listening to the start up beeps each one means something some motherboard have light that indicate Ram, Video, are working or not.
