    Windows 10

    My 2710 has been sitting in a closet for a year since I couldn't find a solution and was told by a repair tech that it needed a motherboard. Today I found this: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...OuPbGDdGwr0viA

    I carefully followed the instructions and IT WORKED!!!

    Bios chips aren`t replaceable. They are part of the motherboard. Only the bios itself can be upgraded/flashed.

    And in no way could Windows 10 "Break" a computer.

    I also agree. A BIOS chip can be replaced, it can be a pain but is no way impossible.

    Well I`ll be, I`ve never heard of or even seen that done, thought it was ROM soldered to the board. Out in the field we would never replace a part like that, they just order a new board.

    Hence people have always said, if you screw up during a bios update you could brick the board.

    I`d love to see a picture of a board with it pointed out

    Nevermind

    Wow, you linked the same one I did, amazing

    That`s an Asrock board, would the same thing be true for a Dell or an HP or Lenovo or a Fujitsu ?

    Dell and HP boards are made by Asrock and most of the others. Asrock started business as an OEM supplier of boards. The chips were soldered on quite a few years ago, but even they could be replaced, but it takes a lot more technical ability than the newer boards do.

    That was the first video in the search list.

    Ya I never have to deal with that, just slap in a new board.

    I suppose Mike and I have one of them under our Armour/plastic cover ? And you have one on your Z77 and X99 ?

    And Asus would have that part if we ever needed it ?
