I have Compaq Presario V2508WM. It has a 412438-001 motherboard, can anyone tell me where to find the bios chip on the board?

    The laptop turns on and beeps twice but nothing else. I'm assuming this is due to a corrupted BIOS. So in order to fix the laptop I'm either going to have to flash the chip (which I've never done before) of Buy a replacement chip. I'm not sure exactly where the BIOS chip is on the motherboard so I'm asking anyone who might know or who might have a fix.

    Do you want to know how to update the bios? or did you actually take your laptop apart and want to know where the physical chip is?

When I turn on my Compaq Presario 5000, I get a message on the first screen that says 1801-Microcode Error. And something about needing a new bios? Please help me.


The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

The bios chip is not replaceable. If nothing is wrong with bios, live and let be. If bios is corrupt, a new motherboard is needed.

Changing the bios chips on that particular logic board requires soldering. It's a black chip with white writing on it, it's flat, and it has about 20 prongs on it.

Regarding my Compaq Presario #SR5113WM motherboard....While updating BIOS it locked up for four hours at which point I shut it down and upon restarting it would go straight to the BIOS screen. I contacted...


you can't replace with OEM board. reseon is the mounting hole and the size of the board. each manufacture has their own board made for that unit type.
the option is download the BIOS to a working computer copy it to a floppy or a cd. hope the Presario see the input device and install the BIOS one more time.
if not, try to find a same motherboard from ebay and change the NVRAM. BIOS chip.
