  1. Nope no luck. Anyway to reflash bios?
  2. I doubt flashing the BIOS will help since anything caused by a thunderstorm usually means hardware damage, but it will do no harm to try. BIOS updates for your PC will be on the ASUS support website which for UK models is here:
    http://www.asus.com/uk/support/

    For other countries, select here: http://www.asus.com/entry.htm

    You'll curse the small text size - - it's an ASUS annoyance that they really should do something about.
