I made the grevious mistake of disabling the onboard video.
I can not see the bios screen to reset my settings.

Could someone kindly take the time to give me instructions on how to reach either the video settings submenu or the bios reset menu?

What I mean by this is:
how many key presses to the right or left to get to which menu,
when do i need to press the keyboard/archos key
so I can navigate through the menus blind and either reset my bios to default to turn the video driver back on, or to just enable the driver again under the video submenu.

I continue to fail to stick to the rule: if it isn't broken, don't try to fix it.... >.<

I appreciate any help you can give me very much.

PHEW! *wipes sweat off brow and feels his bowels relax*
For a second there I thought I was going to be stuck with a $400 plastic and silicon paperweight... :shock:

Thankfully my brain was working through the night (it kept me up...) and I realized that the board might have a battery back up for the CMOS, which is really what I needed to reset.

Sure enough, this forum has proven it's value by having someone else share their knowledge:
