Look in your motherboard manual, it should show you the position of your CMOS jumper. turn the pc off, disconnect everything and put the jumper in its reset position for a few mins. Reboot it in the other position! go straight into the BIOS and sort the settings.

you can send off to asus to get a replacement if its really scrambled, or try to revert back to an older revision. Or wait for a new one!

I don't think he was talking about clearing the CMOS.

If you made a backup of your original BIOS just reflash it. Otherwise, you're going to have to find a copy of it or another BIOS for your board and flash it again.

There is a company that will send you out a whole new bios chip if it is really that far gone http://www.biosman.com/replacement.htm

Hope that helps. you can usually just revert to an old one if you can find one on the net. Did you have problems flashing it? Did it mess up some way through?

Resetting the BIOS by way of clearing the CMOS only resets your settings. Please don't confuse this with reflashing your BIOS. The BIOS is firmware which is embedded onto a little chip on your MOBO. The only way to fix it is to reflash to an older BIOS (which you have tried and didn't work) or to remove the chip altogether and replace it with a new one. Fortunately, the latter isn't too expensive. Follow the link Double Helix has posted and you should be able to find a replacement for your board.
