Default GA 8SQ800 dead BIOS?

I cannot boot my system. I get an error message to the effect of:

Award Bootblock BIOS v1.0

BIOS ROM checksum error
Detecting floppy drive A media...
Insert system dusk and press enter

I think my BIOS is either corrupt (virus?) or damaged. A new battery did
nothing. I also cannot flash it because It's own software doesn't recognize
it. Any suggestions to a fix or is my mobo a paperweight? It's only 4 months
