Send it to ASUS and they will fix it. There is nothing you can do besides send it to asus.

Contact asus support... Also... Try reflashing the bios...I don't think asus boards come with dual bios.... .... Go ahead and read the manual provided for the mobo... ..

You will not be able to fix this on your own because this MOBO does not have USB BIOS flashback or a dual BIOS. You can look on the ASUS eStore for a new BIOS chip for your MOBO and then buy it and install it but it would be best to do an RMA because it is very tricky to remove and install without the right tools and know-how.

Technically you can recover the BIOS.

 

It's in the manual.

 

Do what it says

 

2.1.3 ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 utility
The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 is an auto recovery tool that allows you to restore the BIOS file
when it fails or gets corrupted during the updating process. You can restore a corrupted BIOS
file using the motherboard support DVD or a USB flash drive that contains the updated BIOS
file.
• Before using this utility, rename the BIOS file in the removable device into
Z17P3.CAP.
• The BIOS file in the support DVD may not be the latest version. Download the latest
BIOS file from the ASUS website at www.asus.com.
Recovering the BIOS
To recover the BIOS:
1. Turn on the system.
2. Insert the support DVD to the optical drive or the USB flash drive that contains the
BIOS file to the USB port.
3. The utility automatically checks the devices for the BIOS file. When found, the utility
reads the BIOS file and enters ASUS EZ Flash 3 utility automatically.
4. The system requires you to enter BIOS Setup to recover BIOS settings. To ensure
system compatibility and stability, we recommend that you press <F5> to load default
BIOS values.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing so can cause
system boot failure!

Only way is call Customer Support and ask them.

 

You'd have to send the motherboard to nearest Service Center, They'll recover it for you.
