I would take everything out, including the mainboard and the processor, clean the contacts and put them back in. If you need to save time, check the cpu first. Remove the cooling kit carefully, then the cpu. Check and clean any dust and put them back in.
If the problem persists, do the same with the memory modules. Remove them, clean the contacts and put them back in. Also check if there is any metal object between the mainboard and the chassis.
Hope this helps.
