If you remove the white label on the chip (near the CMOS battery) you will find the following details about it:
SST 49LF080A 33-4C-NHE
It is the PLCC32 type and can be pried and removed safely (but be very careful) with an eye glass flat head screw driver.
If you just have a bad flash you may be able to reprogram your original or just buy another one with the part# above and reprogram it.
This is great news for people who have bricked their motherboard after doing a BIOS update. You may be able to just get a programmer and reflash the ROM and reinstall or worst case just buy a new ROM chip, program and install the chip back.
