Not all BIOS chips are removable. Your board uses a AMI Bios and u can quickly identify it by searching for the AMI symbol or lettering. If the Bios has a seat you can remove it: ttp://www.biosman.com/images/extaction_plcc_points.gif
If it is soldered on...sorry...u need a new MB.
But have you tried clearing the bios and then reflashing it?

your bios has been corrupted.
The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.
Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.
Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r
Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:
py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot
Remove disk and restart computer

You need to verify if your operating system is in tact. If you tried to replace hard disk with an operating system in tact I hope. If you have a windows XP cd, place it in the cdrom and boot it on start up...this will give you some diagnostic capability. Try removing battery as well...you may have wrong voltage. Remove battery on board then plug in computer then reboot. Battery is only for CMOS and not needed to operate computer. If it boots to an operating system you know what's up. Also, try resetting your BIOS with jumper setting then switch back after EEPROM reset.
