I have a ASUS NCCH-DL motherboard with BIOS messed up. The PC was working fine with no beeps except the BIOS 1.0 message ( due to power failure while updating the BIOS)

I tried to clear the CMOS jumpers from moving jumper from 1 & 2  to 2 & 3 and setting back to 1 & 2
When i powered back it started continous beep. Finally I realized after removing hard disk and graphics card ( e-GeForce 7800 GS) and powering up with the RAM installed in, there is no beep.
When i reseated the graphics card, it starts continuous beep. Does it mean the graphics card (properly seated) got damaged?
Thanks for your help

If power went off during flash, then it is likely that the beep is due to a corrupt bios rather than a damaged vid card. Easy enough to confirm, just try another. If the bios chip is removable, you may be able to order a replacement from Asus, otherwise any competent electronics outfit should be able to program it for you if you supply the bios file. If the chip is not removable, the board will probably have to be replaced.

Sorry, the beep is due to no power plugged in to the graphics card. Its my mistake as i forgot to plug the cable to the card.
Burrcm: Thanks for the comment and i will give some points to you for the comment.
I will post another question regarding the corrupt BIOS.
