All the sudden, I started getting the American Megatrends window when booting. I have to plug in a USB keyboard, do the FI and F10 dance and reboot to get to Windows. (see attached).

It doesn't matter what I do in the bios as for boot settings. It'll happen again.

Never happened before.

If I fully power down and shut off my surge protector, it will happen again, every time. If I just power down and leave the SP on, it might not happen again.

I use W7 64.

Anyone?

Is it the motherboard battery or something else?

Try changing the CMOS battery.

Agree with wrench, if the BIOS settings are lost during a cold start (full power shutdown and start), but are retained when the pc is rebooted/restarted, classic signs of the CMOS battery requiring a replacement.
