You may not have to remove the BIOS and reprogram it. As some BIOS
protects a very small part of the BIOS for emergency reprogramming for
cases like this. And this is known as a bricked computer. It usually
works something like this:

1) Place the BIOS file on a floppy and turn on the computer with the
floppy already in the drive, or

2) The same, but you have to hold down a key or keys when you power it
on like the F2 key or something. Or

3) Computers without floppy drives can use USB (floppy, flash, hard,
etc.) drives instead. But they must be formatted in FAT12/16. FAT32 or
NTFS won't do.

I can't help you with the BIOS file. Anyway good luck.
