Is this a BIOS problem or am I barking up the wrong tree? If so could Chernobyl be responsible? Can I rescue my mobo?
I do not know what else to do and would appreciate any help you can offer.

Ill appreciate any further suggestions.Unfortunately, in many cases it can; some flash EEPROM devices have a protected bootblock area that can only be written to after "unlocking" by a series of writes to a specific location (which of course could be carried out by a virus) but others are pretty open. I still prefer the jumper method of protecting old-style flash devices, also putting devices in sockets (derided by Tom's Hardware who obviously have not had a BIOS flash go wrong).
