Access BIOS and look under the SECURITY tab. You should be able to reset the intrusion switch, disable it, or do whatever you want with chassis intrusion.

:) On the mobo there is probably a set of pins, located just above the 20 pin power connector, that is labeled IR. It has a jumper over the last two pins. Remove this jumper and clean the pins then reinstall the jumper. Restart the computer. It might take two or three times for it to eventually clear the error. If you still have problems, replace the jumper with one that provides a good connection. This seems to be a common problem with some asus boards. In fact, a poster on another forum stated that he eventually had to solder the pins together to correct the problem.:D

Good luck.
