I replaced the motherboard in my laptop.
The old one needed replaced due to a bad BIOS flash. And I tried installing a newly flashed BIOS chip myself but pulled off two contact pads on the motherboard by mistake.
What should I do with the old board, is it worth anything?

(Note the CPU, RAM and Wifi card are removed from faulty board and put into the new one)

Since you "damaged" it trying to install new BIOS chip, it probably won't work anymore, without some help.
You could offer it up to someone on Craigslist or drop by your local PC shop to see if they have any interest, but it's probably destined for the E-waste bin.
