I see many causes for that on the web. You already tried the usual so keeping in mind the cost of repair today I spotted this on Woot:

That's 140 (plus 5 for shipping) and in my town the shop minimum charge is about 125.

Again, you tried the usual reseating of parts. One last idea is to replace the CMOS BIOS BATTERY. That's about 2 dollars ( ) and I have to write no, it's not a sure thing but I find many forget to replace that part.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
