That is an old board that may have a dead battery or may be dead altogether. Try clear CMOS jumper or just remove the battery for 5 seconds. Sounds like a corrupted BIOS so a clear CMOS may help. If that does not fix it it may be a brick.

Corrupt bios, replace battery with power cable removed and when it boots up, go into bios and choose safe/default settings, save and exit.

If it works, now changes your bios settings to the optimal settings for your config.
