You mean time/date resetting back to some fixed year in past or settings reverting to default settings? If yes then try changing cmos battery/button cell.
Now the new problem, I'm unable to get display after powering on pc. (Continuous long beep is still there, I disabled those warnings for CPU fan and system 1 fan)
I tried every method. But I get display only after removing and reinserting CMOS battery, and bios gets reset.
Can I revert back to previous BIOS version?

I think you can but the issues you mentioned may be beyond the scope of bios downgrade.

Looks like either the bios has gone bad or the mobo itself is dying especially if it is more than 3 years old.

Okay. It's above 3 years.
Should I continue using the same until it lasts.. will it damage other components? GPU or PSU?

Any suggestion for new motherboard? Minimum cost.
You can try, small chance of a dying mobo damaging other components. Which processor you are using?

Not much choice, 2 options only: Gigabyte GA-B250-FinTech(an atx mobo with 12 pcie slots) or asus H110M-CS with 2 ram slots(both of them lack hdmi port).

A. S. S. for gigabyte mobos wasn't exactly great the last time i checked, therefore i'd say don't keep your expectations high for monitor related services either.

For gpus and it's RMA service I can say Gigabyte is plain crap. With having said that don't expect much from their motherboard repair service either but only thing is they make really good motherboards. That's it.
