Yep, if you got your spare chips try 'flashrom -r backup.bin' to get
your original BIOS, then replace the chip with an empty one (while the
PC is running) and try 'flashrom -wv backup.bin' to write it on the
empty chip.

If that worked, put away the original chip in a safe place.

Please send the output of 'superiotool -dV', 'lspnp -v', and 'lspci -vvv'.
Patch for a first try will follow.
