While there are many of such cases been reported lately, some users suspect the motherboard product manufacturing failure as the culprit. For you to know, the words are circling lately about how many Gigabyte motherboard users find some errors and failures due to the product defect.

And unfortunately, the problem you are now facing on has nothing to do with product defect.
Instead of replacing your motherboard, you can try these simple steps that have been proven effective in solving such problem. First of all, shutdown your computer and then unplug the power cord.

However if it still failed, you can repeat the process with extra step of removing the battery CMOS from the motherboard when the computer is completely drain of power. Hopefully the trick that worked perfectly on my computer would also able to solve your problems.
