I posted mine as you were posting yours, so I didn't see your post. But yes we are both right.
Anyway, I do not recomend bios flashing programs that are not put out by the manufactuer. I tried one once to flsh a vid card and it wadded the cards bios up good. I have also heard of mobos bioses getting corrupted in the same way. Go to your mobos builders web site and see how they recomend flashing it, then doing so. A partially flashed bios may be your problem.
