Computer froze while updating bios
The bios isn't removable, so surely there's some kind of device they plug into to reflash it for you I thought. Next to the BIOS chip, to the left of the south bridge, is an undocumented 7 pin connector labeled SPI_J1.After a lot research I stumbled upon a few pages (linked at the bottom) that documented the type of cable necessary and the software to use this port to reflash the bios.
From the ASUS website, they have a 3 year warranty on the motherboard. I confirm I successfully programmed my flash IC for an ASUS P8H67-M-PRO. I built the parallel adapter, I added a 3.3vdc power supply and used it to program my flash memory chip.doesn't do it slow enough, or a bit at a time; which is what the SST chip needs for a successful reflash.To boot the program I made two floppy disks, one with a Windows 98 SE boot disk, and the second with the spipgm2 program and the bios image file (extension). Either get your 3.3V straight from ATX power-supply (orange cables) or from universal power supply (if you are lucky, and have one).Thanks for your support, I just wanted to tell my story for others to try.Regards, There are some great suggestions here, but odds are you don't have the gear to fix (reflash) the rom on your own.

To get the ~3V, I took a pass through power connector from an old case fan and added three diodes to the 5V wire, giving me a little over 3V.
