Give the reset a try. If that doesn't do it you can use the flashback. You are luck, many motherboards do not have that option.

Success!

So, resetting the CMOS did not do it. Left the battery out and the jumper over for about 1.5 hrs while I was shopping. Nada.

Turns out, I was able to update the BIOS. I was under the impression that you had to have the usb stick in a port while accessing the BIOS (F2/Delete at splash screen). Wrong. (I have never done this before). I entered the BIOS, entered the flash utility, and THEN plugged in the stick. I was then able to successfully update the BIOS, and all is well.

Any idea how those things got there, and what I can do to avoid that from happening again?

Cheers.

Hard to tell what happened. Chalk it up to "Murphy's Law" (Murphy's Law says 1 plus 1 hardly ever equals 2).
