This is generally not recommend unless you are a professional shop. If you asked the question, I doubt if you are qualified.
OK, you want to do it. The chip is flow solder which is very difficult to remove and replace. Odds are you will melt the chip and all the nearby circuits. This assumes you can get the motherboard out of the laptop.

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.

Changed out the motherboard reformatted a blank hardrive, No issues in the reformat.Installed drivers then updated the bios.Currently will only boot to bios briefly then shuts down.Tried resetting the bios...


Sounds like your BIOS update did not complete successfully. Head to the board manufacturers website and check if there is some way you can reload the BIOS and recover from this. Most boards now have dual bios which means that if one bios chip fails or an update fails, you can reload the stored BIOS through the other chip. If you are unable to recover from a failed BIOS update, you may need to purchase a replacement BIOS chip from the board manufacturer. You may even be able to reload the original BIOS onto the chip through your local PC repair store so give them a call and enquire..

Wrong BIOS Id


Go to Compaq and download the original bios from them. If that takes then you should be able to change it to what ever you like.
