    Default Bios Issue

    So I messed up my Bios and am in rut.
    A couple of days ago I was trying to transfer and game save off of my xbox 360 with a usb drive I got from Target but the damn thing died right after I did the save (literally bought it 20 minutes before this happened) but I wasn't sure if it was the USB Drive or my computer so I try to plug in my Iphone and it isn't being acknowledge by the computer but it still charged so I assumed it was the usb drivers ,so I spent the rest of my evening trying to figure it out with reinstalling drivers and such but no luck, so I end up pulling the stupid move of trying to Update my Bios thinking that it was the culprit. I ended up corrupting my Bios and now on the DR Debugger the cod AR comes up, so I google and look around to see what can I do? So here's what I've tried

    1) Took out the battery for 30 mins, did nothing
    2) Asrock Support suggest in very poor english that I press clr cmos three times, unplug the atx wires, press clr cmos 3 more times and then plug the wires back in to see what that does
    3) I ordered a new Bios chip from BiosDepot on Ebay with that is most current but it's not being recognized, the debugger just flashes a quick 0 and it looks like the computer tries to turn on for a second then turns off and this just repeats till you stop it.
    4)I even tried reseeding the ram.

    So basically Bios is bad, no screen comes up, screen remains blank as it's not even receiving anything.
    I'm at my ropes end :(

    Try booting with a minimal hardware setup:
    You want to boot only with your cpu and heat sink, PS2 keyboard, video card and only 1 memory module. That's it.
    If you have a case speaker connected to the motherboard, leave it connected.
    If needed, try booting with each bios chip.
    Make sure the your power supply is disconnected any time you remove or install any hardware.
    I would remove the cmos battery before installing or replacing the bios chip.
    Are there any beep codes from the speaker?
    Do any fans spin up when you power on your system?
    Do you have another psu to test with? It's possible that there was a "coincidental" power supply failure.
    If all else fails, remove the mobo battery and leave the clear cmos pins jumpered for 12 - 24 hours.
    Sometimes you need to clear the cmos for a long time.

    Situation kinda just got worse, since the last time I was attempting these fix attempts I have misplaced the original bios chip. No idea where it is and just spent 2 hours looking for it. Hopefully the new chip isn't actually broken and your idea of leaving the battery and cmos on clear for 24 hours works. If not I'm going to have a professional fix my dilemma.
