Windows 7 Boot issues

Hello all! I'm new here and coming to the end of my rope with this ongoing issue. First a little backstory as to how this came about. I built this pc back in 2011, had minimal issues with it so far. A handful of times I have experienced something to where I turn my computer on and the tower lights come on, but the monitor never lights up blue, stays orange like its in sleep mode. Now this particular issue I have read about multiple times, some people say re-seat your RAM, re-seat your graphics card, un-plug everything and plug it back up also ***removing your CMOS battery***. All of these quick fixes have seemed to work at random in the past until one fateful day that I pulled my CMOS battery and reset my BIOS that way. Ever since then I have only had the (no signal) issue once or twice since then but now I have a NEW issue, the Boot menu comes up each time I turn my computer on and I have absolutely no idea how to work around it. I have press F8 to access Boot Menu and then select which HDD to boot from. Obviously I know which HDD my windows is on but its annoying that I have to do this each time. Here are my PC spec in case this helps. Thanks in advance and my apologies for the long winded explanation.

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise (64 bit)

Motherboad: ASUS M4A88T-V

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB)

Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.20 GHz

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB 256-bit

  1. Yes, sound like you need a new CMOS battery for sure...oh, and go get a legitimate copy, they're not that much.

    lol I know copies of windows arent that much, I've just never gotten around to it to be honest. So just go get another battery and see if that works?
