Same problem here(one of my old mobos), but code 88(if I remember correctly). In my case, mobo was ... GARBAGE

DFI-s were intended for overclocking usually not for long life.Maybe thats why they are out of the market now.
It can be a BIOS corruption case ,try and recover BIOS as Award or AMI(as the mobo has) recommend ,maybe you get it fixed.

move the ram around in the slots and install the video card in another slot.
pull the battery out for a few minutes with the psu swiched off.
ive gotten the 88 code a few times, once in the middle of a dice run.

Are you sure the power supply is healthy ?
