DB85FL: BIOS has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s).



after installing alot of engineering softwares such as matlab and solidworks, this message started to pop out every time i turn on my computer:

bios has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s) (...) press y to enter setup or N to cancel and to boot with previous settings.

well, it was working fine at the beginning when i press n it restarts and when i press y it goes to bios setup, but after few days my computer started to take alot of time to turn on it was like it keeps restarting every 5 seconds, and when i get this message if i press y it freezes and n it restarts, and if it worked and launched, the resolution would be really bad as if there is no vga detected. i tried formatting and the same thing didnt change but got worse.

my vga is nvidia gtx 670 with 16 gb ram envy hyperx and a db85l intel.

please if anyone knows how to fix it let me know.
