Then my a7v333 motherbord is doomed, as I can't even power off during
the first phase of boot, when the bios does its tests.  That's pretty
disappointing!

If anyone knows about how to undo the damage, for example by resetting
the chips to their pre-lm_sensors state, please let me know.

Also, can anyone suggest what I could possibly say to ASUS when asking
them for help with the problem?
