Error Messages:I'm trying to replace a cmos battery.  The battery is soldered directly to the VIA VT82885N bios chip, which i managed to ruin by breaking the pins connecting it to the battery...I was reading that if these pins are broken then the motherboard itself is useless. Is it not possible to obtain a new VT82885N chip(WHERE) and solder on a new battery?  PLEASE HELP
