BIOS ROM Checksum Error

So last night while doing some web browsing, my main system starts outputting a flickering signal to the monitor, Firefox crashes, and I get a blue screen followed by a reboot.

When my system reboots, instead of the normal POST stuff I get a message along these lines:

"Award Bootblock version 1.0
Copyright stuff

BIOS ROM Checksum Error"

The system then proceeds to try booting from the CD-ROM and floppy drive to not avail.

I tried clearing the CMOS RAM, but that didn't change anything and I'm not sure what the next step I should take is.

For reference, the motherboard is an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium. The boot drive is a WD 150 gig Raptor SATA drive.

dang you need to RMA it. you might get lucky and re-flash with their BIOS recovery tool but it usually never works out like it should. also check all your chips on the mobo for burns/fries. don't see how a BIOS could go corrupt on you like that
