  1. I'm looking for anyone who has successfully shorted this model , as I cannot find a bios chip that matches anything described in any shorting methods. I don't need pictures or anything of that sort, just what type of chip is used. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    there's no chip to short in this model of laptop. bios chip is 8-pin serial flash chip(SST 25vf080 for instance), but you won't remove password if you "short" it. the password is stored in KBC controller.
