  1. My dad's Dell Studio 1537 laptop hanged during a bios update, so the bios chip is fried. I want to desolder the chip and replace it with a preprogrammed new bios chip, but I'm not able to indentify or locate which EEPROM is the bios chip.

    Anyone with tips how to identify the right chip?

    I got a reply from the website that sells the chips and they identified the right chip for me based on a picture I've send them. In case someone else has the some issue: it's the chip on the back of the mainboard next to the large chip with the label ITE.

    The id of the chip is:
    MX - 15G
    25L1605AM2C
    2Y330100
    TAIWAN
    L082124
