I was getting:

BIOS ROM checksum error
Detecting floppy drive A media...

Since Matsonic does not reply to their tech support email, I ordered a new BIOS ROM chip from for $35, paid the extra $13 for overnight shipping, and got it 18 hours after I placed the order online. Swapped the chip out, and I'm back up and running. The motherboard is still under warranty, but that does me no good when they don't reply to their email for weeks.
