Most likely one of the chips on the motherboard is faulty. Could be the M92T36 chip and or the P13USB chip or possibly something else but those are the two most common. The easiest way to diagnose those is by looking for shorted capacitors near the chips like I show in this video: https://youtu.be/EP65185uGiA

Hi TronicsFix,Thank you for replying, I believe i have faulty capacitors, Is there a specific capacitor i am supposed to purchase? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@migjav It's highly unlikely that the capacitors are faulty. 99.9% of the time it's one or more of the IC's on the motherboard

Oh I see, but just in case could you provide me with the type of capacitors I am suppose to purchase if it does turn out to be a faulty capacitor. Thank you.

@migjav I don't know what they are. I've never had to replace one...even if I did I'd just take it from a junk board. Sorry
