    You could try ordering the latest BIOS revision on a ready flashed chip, and replace the one you have. You should consider whether the motherboard might be faulty, (Read this)

    (Summary: AMD 3200 Venice socket 939 MSI RS482M4 motherboard Warning:Unknown Processor Revision, fatal error, won't boot. Poster tried removing CMOS battery for 3 hrs, found similar posts on web even with latest bios, sent motherboard back for exchange, replacement board booted fine.)
