The IC which got burnt was for SMPS regulator. And this is necessary for constant DC supply to all components on your other board. So go on the shop and ask for specified regulator IC and also read all datasheets or documentation before replacing it.

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.

Reset Bose LifeStyle 48 VChip Password

Bypass or Reset Bose LifeStyle 48 System V-Chip Password Lock


Would you like to bypass, defeat or reset your Bose LifeStyle 48 System Parental V-Chip parental lock? Have you forgotten your V-Chip passcode or password?

If you forget your V-Chip passcode, you can view the locked signal without entering your password.

When your passcode is requested, enter the temporary code 2673. This process temporarily unlocks your system, and you can reset or change the password.

I hope that helps.

Re; HP 6735b Laptop Bios and admin are password protected by previous owner. I understand this can be corrected by replacing the CMOS chip on the motherboard. I am fairly technical but need advice on who...

Hi george.

I'm afraid you will have to get in touch with HP about this problem. The reason being is that yes you can de-solder the BIOS chip but this is very hard to do with it being on a laptop motherboard. You will need a very steady hand and also a heat gun to melt all the solder points on the chip to remove it, then you have to get the new chip in place properly which again is not easy, even for a tech like me!! To be honest with you I personally wouldn't bother trying to do this because it's that hard to do. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then HP will give you the master reset code to wipe the password from the BIOS.
I'm sorry but this is the best advice I can give you.

Kind regards.

the pins you are looking for are usually the same ones they are jumper pins JP1 and JP2 the pins usually have a caption near it CLS CMOS . BUT this is a bios issue , the information will most likely not be reset by doing a CMOS reset i know for this issue with the IBM thinkpads you have to have the chipset replaced , and im sure it will probably be the same for a F-S. you can try the other approach but im not sure what will result from it
