    You have to re-flash the BIOS. Problem: You won't be able to do it personally since the computer doesn't start up.

    Solution: There are companies that can do that for you. Usually that means that you send in your BIOS chip and the BIOS you want on it and they flash it and send it back. The shop I use for such occasions takes about 5$ for the service, so it's very affordable. In case the chip was fried, they usually also offer sending the BIOS on a replacement chip. This is a little more expensive then, but still nothing to worry about. Your biggest problem will be to find such a company and to get the BIOS chip out of its socket without breaking it. For the latter problem you can get special prongs that were specifically designed for this purpose, but those are usually more expensive than the whole above described procedure.
