Damn you bios :(

Recommended Posts

There are two types of snap in BIOS chips,.. shops use extractors to pull them,.. but a small flat screw driver works or a bent paperclip,..  http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-chip-installation-removal.htm

Thanks you've been super helpful. I'll start working on removing my chip once I get the new system parts in to replace it.

So my new AM1 machine is setup and it's awesome, noticeably more thrifty and smooth than my E350 but I'm determined to save ol' trusty. So far I was able to remove its bios chip, it actually was in some little mouth kind of thing that I opened up and the chip was able to be lifted right out!

 

Pics: (first one is the weird mouth socket *I highlighted it in green* and the other three are the chip from different angles for identification)

I guess I'll look into that company to reflash it now... I wonder what the best way to ship it so it doesn't get damaged. I have a bubble mailer that's not too much bigger than a standard envelope that may work... Any thoughts?
