Welcome Newcomer! :) 

If indeed that CMOS chip, resulting from a BAD BIOS FLASH, is indeed the problem then you'll need to send it back to the MOBO Mfg; they can reprogram & test the MOBO.

However, I would first try to CLEAR your CMOS; pull the power plug AND remove the CMOS battery for ~15 minutes. Otherwise use the the CMOS clear button or Short the CMOS clear contacts on you MOBO. Next, if that fails I would try another PSU or with a DVM {Digital Voltage Meter ~ $30} test the PSU.

Q - What happened? or What did you do?

Good Luck!

well mate, nowadays, it's not as easy as removing a DIP chip and replacing it. Either RMA or buy a new board, lol.

But like jaquith said, what happened? Maybe it's not the something that needs to be replaced.
