Sadly I'm afraid to say that it's most likely a bad motherboard. Is the computer still under warranty? They might fix it if it is under warranty. If not or they claim it to be misuse, I guess ya gotta get a new motherboard and drop it in. Or maybe might be a better idea to just start fresh and take your data off the old hard drive. Sorry mate, these kinds of things happen.
