Seems like your BIOS chip needs to be replaced or the whole motherboard.
While flashing the BIOS you should never ever turn off the computer or else the BIOS will end up corrupted.

I feel sorry for you, but really, all I can suggest is to swap the motherboard or replace the BIOS chip with a new one.
