SOURCE: Need to know the location of the bios chip on a esc g31t-m

Not all BIOS chips are removable. Your board uses a AMI Bios and u can quickly identify it by searching for the AMI symbol or lettering. If the Bios has a seat you can remove it: ttp://www.biosman.com/images/extaction_plcc_points.gif

If it is soldered on...sorry...u need a new MB.

But have you tried clearing the bios and then reflashing it?

SOURCE: Gigabyte Motherboard wont flash bios

your bios has been corrupted.

The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.

Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.

Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines

@ECHO OFF
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r

Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:

py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot

Remove disk and restart computer

SOURCE: After replacing on board lithium cell, computer

You need to verify if your operating system is in tact. If you tried to replace hard disk with an operating system in tact I hope. If you have a windows XP cd, place it in the cdrom and boot it on start up...this will give you some diagnostic capability. Try removing battery as well...you may have wrong voltage. Remove battery on board then plug in computer then reboot. Battery is only for CMOS and not needed to operate computer. If it boots to an operating system you know what's up. Also, try resetting your BIOS with jumper setting then switch back after EEPROM reset.

As i was upgrading my bios, the power went off, after restarting no display, what can i do? my laptop is hp compaq nc6400


The machine will not start again until a new bios chip is installed or the
board is replaced.
On a desktop a procedure called "hot flashing" can be done but not on a
laptop unless you have the proper equipment and know-how.
Hot flashing is where you get and identical bios chip and replace the one on
the board. After the system is started you pull the chip will the system is on and
replace it with the bad flashed chip. Then you do a regular bios flash upgrade. The key is you
need an identical bios chip to start the process. On a laptop you need either and a identical
chip or the ability to write to the bad chip. Oh and I forgot to mention you need the equipment
to take the board out of the laptop case and get it running
One of two things needs to be done:

1) Replace the motherboard

2) Find someone who knows what they are doing and remove the chip and
reprogram it. You should be able to find one of these guys under Google.

This message is seen on the laptop screen BIOS Damaged! Serviceman: Place maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready.


Hi,
The maintenance disk was simply a floppy with rewritten code on the first few sectors that bypassed any kind of checksum or self-diagnostic. Useful if you lost or forgot your BIOS password. Also let the tech into the bios to look at settings before replacing the chip. Back then it was cost effective. Nowadays they just replace the whole dang shebang.
Here are your main options, in order of attempt:

1. Hold down esc key when booting, see if you can get into bios. If not...
2. Remove battery and disconnect ac adapter
3. Gently disassemble case until you find a round coin-like battery
4. Go out, buy replacement battery, replace battery, then reverse step 3 and 2

If these steps fail, you've a bad BIOS chip, you could try to ...
5. ebay it.

Hope this helps!

Cant start


I've wrestled with many crc1 and crc2 problems on IBM machines here at my shop. This is a malfunctioning bios chip on the motherboard. There is no simple clearing procedure for this problem. The chip or the motherboard has to be replaced. I've had about a 25% success rate in replacing the chip, and 100% success by replacing the motherboard. Chip replacement is a delicate procedure in which you have to completely disassemble the machine remove he old chip with a soldiering iron and resoldier the new chip to the board. Soldiering on the motherboard is something I wouldn't recommend without experience. I would recommend replacing the motherboard, It's much easier, and possibly cheaper, since replacing the chip may or may not work. If you replace the chip and it doesn't work, then you're out the money for the chip, and you have to replace the motherboard anyway. The price for the chip is about a third the cost of a new motherboard. You can get a decent price for a good used motherboard for the T20 series from Ebay.
