Shut the hell up, the grown ups are talking..

Joe.. It may be possible for you to reset your BIOS using these links:

(for the K7T266 Pro2-A)

(for the K7T266 Pro2-U)
Bearing in mind I don't know which mobo you have, it may be a case of comparing the pictures on the MSI site to differentiate although I doubt they use different BIOS chips.
To echo the (as always) perfect advice given by Tenchiten, if flashing your BIOS chip with the original BIOS supplied by the mobo manufacturer doesn't work then, regrettably, you wil need to buy a new BIOS chip or (as is sometimes more advisable) a new mobo that is compatible with your processor but may offer more up-to-date functions at an equally affordable price. Given the choice I'd rather have a brand new mobo than a brand new BIOS chip.
As a footnote to this, it is worth noting that MSI provide a utility called 'Live Update' that allows a (working) machine to automatically scan for, and implement, BIOS upgrades. This will be worth using if you can get your machine back up and running with a basic BIOS flash.
I hope this helps more than Diabollocknobs, sorry Diabolicum's, post..
