In the past a bad BIOS chip effectively meant the end of the MB as the BIOS chip was soldered in place and replacing it was beyond the average user, sending the MB away for repair was often not a cost effective solution as a new MB may have cost less, nowadays however most if not all BIOS chips are held in place by a plastic locking device and can be removed using a BIOS chip removal tool, see example http://www.google.co...Q9QEwAg&dur=513 hopefully this will not be required though, see below.
I'm curious, if it's one of the 1st two things you listed, what does that mean for me
In technology Jargon flea power is residual electricity or current often stored on circuit boards (in power supplies, mother boards etc) that remains charged even after all power cords and batteries have been removed. To drain flea power, remove batteries and power cords then attempt to 'turn on' your device. You may be surprised to see a flicker of light, or a twitch in a fan. I have seen some devices run upwards of 30 seconds without any batteries or power cords ~ just from electricity stored in capacitors in the power supply or on a circuit board.
