[ ERROR: SPECIFIED ATTACHMENT MISSING ]


Thank you, this is the one i though of, since its one of possible to solder out. Yet i was wondering for the one that is next to PCI slots, bcoz its labeled with MX25L512 which seemed to be the bios for me and its name?

the Chip i marked before is the Main BIOS chip!

that other ones is from the looks of there wiring being used to hold the firmware for the chips they are closest to!

the one with the green Label is always on that Age of motherboard was always the BIOS one and the rest where for the chips that needed a Flash EPROM
