The positive thing are on this case were talking about a chip socket, so i can pull it out and flash the chip directly.

Yep, but now you really cannot boot (to BIOS) anymore? 

Also some motherbaords/BIOSes have the one (or the other) BIOS recovery modes (it depends, but before actually going to the chip programmer, simpler paths should be preferred), if you detail EXACT motherboard/BIOS we can check if yours has one of such provisions/procedures.

Where talking about this particular kind of motherboard.

Seemingly those with 2 Mbit chips do have a bootblock (unless you accidentally overwrote it) and they can be used also as "programmers" using hot-swap (but you need another similar one).

You will need a working floppy.

Is it an AWARD or a AMI BIOS?

Mine was flashed recently with the award beta bios and i got a floppy emulator which we can use for this, is it a good sign if the hard drive lamp 'blinks' when doing a reset?

it does turn on but stays blank.

Small update! i did have a second award bios chip i did a swap around with and waited a few hours, then placing the flashed bios chip back in, that seems to have 'fixed' the issue itself.
