RE: e4310 bios

You must have force-flashed to get this far -- a BIOS from an E6410 would have failed to flash without doing that, as it won't match the ROM image detect part of the flash loader.  That said, if the system won't complete POST, you can't go back.

You CAN unsolder the BIOS chip but you're going to need access to an EEPROM writer to reflash it before soldering.  Buying such a device will cost more than a replacement mainboard will - and having a shop flash it may come close to the cost of a replacement board, so the board replacement is the least expensive in terms of money AND time.
