Thanks for the advice boss.
As you have mentioned already, the Asus board has a system called Crash Free BIOS 3, which apparently uploads a new BIOS from a USB Flash Disk.
I tried this but no go.
I cleared the CMOS using the jumpers, and took out the batteries, but no go.
I did not disconnect everything overnight, so I'll give that a shot.
Apparently you can send your BIOS chip to companies (PC BIOS reprogramming, replacement, recovery
) for re-flashing, but I can't see anyway to remove that BIOS chip - It looked fairly welded onto the board.
I'll see what the overnight pulled apart option does, and ask the guys on the ASUS forums.
