Thats really unlucky, I'd be so p1ssed

I had a similiar thing happen to me, I was flashing my BIOS and my mum turned the power off and after that the mobo did absolutely nothing, so i got her to buy me an upgrade ( a ASUS P5Q-E) at the time.

Have you spoken to ASUS about the problem, maybe they know what the beep means, Or maybe it says in the manual.

Good luck buddy hope it works out alright.

Sorry to hear that Jin01!! Been through it myself. Here's where I went http://www.biosman.com/ Contacted them Friday at 3:00 PST and was back up and running Tuesday morning (via UPS). Then I sent the chip I wiped-out back and had it reprogrammed for a back-up, now I have a spare.

I have the same board and never had any problems flashing it, have done most of the updates in windows and always kept up to date with their bios releases.

Unlucky mate, I hope you get it sorted, its a really nice board too.

so can you just remove the old chip and put the new one in, or do you have to get out the soldering iron??
