DIP chip removal
DIP removal instructions

The easiest way to remove a DIP type BIOS chip is to purchase our DIP extraction tool. You can also get a very small slot screw driver and lever each side slowly until chip can be removed. It is VERY easy to bend and break the legs of the chip so you must take your time and use slow precise movements until it is free.

Pay special attention to the chip orientation when you remove it. Notice where the cutout half circle notch is (left side), and notice the orientation of the writing on the chip.

If you don't replace the chip exactly as it was removed you will destroy the chip, and possibly your motherboard.
