Bit of a long shot but just wondering if anyone has an eprom programmer that can do a 49F040 flash chip aka a bios chip?
If not I'm thinking about buying one.
We have some laptops that you can set a bios password on but then you have to input it to boot the machine there is not seperate bios and startup passwords.
The password removal is a pain as I have to dismantle the laptop to remove the battery which is under the trackpad.
The bios chip however is more easily accessible under a compartment on the back so I want to be able to just reprogram it.
I looked around for a BIOS PROM programmer a few months ago for our ASUS workstations and the item you quote would be the one I'd buy. At the time it didn't come with the adaptor I needed but I see now that it does.
I found it a bit difficult to work out which particular adaptor I needed for the BIOS chip but apart from that the kit looks really good, with loads of positive feedback for the manufacturer on eBay.
The only reason I haven't bought one yet is pressure of work (feeble excuse I know!).
Hope this is of some help with your prospective purchase.
