Didn't flashrom work at least with the flash chip on the Gigabyte
board? (I remember there were problems with BIOS savior, but seem
to recall that flashing the chip alone worked OK.)

PLCC in socket? Which flash part?

Is the problem the flash chip or the southbridge?

If you have another LPC board you could use that as a flasher with
pushpinflash or a BIOS savior. (1Mbyte RD1-LPC8 is easy to get.)

The K9N NEO-F is even nicer on the budget over here. Wow.
2GHz dual core X2 + mobo + 2x512MB RAM = 140EUR! (ex 25% VAT)
