Unbelievable. I followed the tip from another Intel user with a similar problem on a different motherboard. Follow your instructions for Recover BIOS using the recovery mode.
Put the latest BIOS .BIO file on a CD-ROM (this is NOT an ISO image--just a file).
Remove the jumper from the BIOS configuration pins (this put the machine into recovery mode).
Boot the computer (I know--you can't see anything; just do it).
The other gentleman said it took four iterations to accomplish this, but mine worked on the second.
New BIOS and video, too!
