I have checked manual for your mainboard and it seems that the BIOS chip is in a socket - could you confirm ?
If yes,there are at least 2 possibilities to recover - one if you know somebody with the same mb and second if not.
But first answer question.

You can flash it. What you need is to check chip name (under the sticker with BIOS name, write down everything what is on chip) and file with BIOS (.bin).
You can find http://www.recoverybios.com/biosrecovery/En/ or different.
Or you can ask somebody in shop with electronic components near your house, technical university (electronic depertment)..
There is few possibilities to programm this memory.
Good luck.

12.6 EU (euro) about 15 US$
In Europe: http://www.techspot.com/reviews/hardware/bios_saviour/index.shtml interesting article,
in US for example: http://www.biosman.com/contact.html (rather expensive).

Honestly for the price of an ECS board I would just replace it who knows if it was a power surge. If you really want you can get a new chip but $25+ shipping. Those boards are like $50 shipped new. Goodluck.
