If you can get into the bios, try disabling any "boot block" or "virus protection" settings before attempting to flash. If no luck, unplug your system and remove the motherboard battery for one minute and reinstall, which resets the bios.

All I can recommend is to remove the board battery and leave it out overnight. Asus has a "crash recovery program" on some of it's motherboard cd's, requiring a special procedure to recover the bios. Will check on this. http://www.asus.com/999/html/events/mb/crashfreebios2.h...

It's a program that's only on some asus original cd's for some of their motherboards. You may find it in the "utilities" section if you have the original cd for your board. Load the cd in another computer and check the files. It should have instructions for it somewhere if your cd came with the file.

Ok i tried everything ......i left the battery out for a while placed it back...same result, finally got the PC to start and i tried the Motherboard support CD and i installed the bios update thing and then a message came up stating that i have to restart the system for changes to take effect... the PC has not started back up since....i'v been trying for hrs on end........any other solutions will be appreciated.

also im beginning to think that the board might be going back :(  ........ this is a new system... i'm a young (newbe) I.T Tech........and i built the PC for myself for the first time.

Request the rma from asus or return to your vender. All you have to tell asus is that the board won't post and give them 24 hours to issue an rma number. You must wrap the board carefully; it will be thoroughly inspected for surface damage at asus.
