@ trents - I read your post, and yes, I did remove power, or at least I UN-plugged the power supply and move the jumper. I did not unplug the hdmi cable from the graphics card to the monitor. I hope that wasn't necessary.
Right now the machine is sitting with all external connections Un-plugged, the jumper moved and the battery removed. I intend to leave it that way until morning. Then I'll try it again.
If that works, excellent, if not - I don't know, but I have been reading the manual about using the usb bios flashback button and usb memory stix. That seems designed for my problem, except it is very difficult - if not impossible - for me to find a source for the Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 bios. I can find 990fx GEN3 r2.0 but that does not look to me like the right bios. What do you think? I mean, if it were the same, then it seems logical that it would have the same name. and GEN3 is a different name.
Thanks - yes I have that image and have located the jumper. No, I do not have Gen3, gen3 bios is easy to find, but the plain 990fx r2.0 bios is not.
