Look in your manual of the motherboard, go to there website, see if you can order a new BIOS or call there tech support. Like you indicated you need the BIO replaced ... there's not to much anyone can do on a bulletin board "IF" the BIOS is infact totally dead.

Have you tried clearing your CMOS, there's usually a jumper marked on the motherboard or pop the battery out for about 5 minutes, unplug the power to the PSU and then pop the battery back in and power it up.

tell your friend straight up, he owes you a new mobo, unless you were the one who told him to take out the bios chip.
