could someone be so nice and send me a recent dump of both ROMs, 4 and 8 MB? This will be much appreciated. The originals - no modification needed.
I have a bricked W530 here, and the latest binaries for both ROMs I could find are from 2016...

Thank you
Hi

Hi,
thanks for your reply.

But how to recover my bios when there's just a black screen?
It worked with the dumps I found on the internet (from 2016), but after updating it with the official updater from Lenovo to the latest BIOS, it staid black again.
So I was thinking: When I have to do all the work again anyway, then this time at least with up to date ROMs.

I wonder why it worked with the ROMs from 2016 without any beep. Silly me, I shouldn't have touched it again.
Are you sure that it will beep when I overwrite both ROMs, not only the BIOS?

Cheers

No, my chip is not broken. I could program them. The problem is that I only have very old binaries for the chips... Even when I had new chips, I still need something to write on it.

Hi, my w530 will be arriving this week, am I correct in assuming I still need a hardware flasher for this mod? I will re-read and get everything I need for the mod if so, and reading on I need a dump of only the 4MB Rom which is the white label in the attached image.

Could you let me know if this is all still correct and up to date, also, seeing donations range from $20 upwards, which I am happy to oblige.

Thanks for your help,

I have a W530 would like the BIOS modified on. I have read both chips with programmer, however, not sure if I am doing this correctly. The Left chip comes up as a MX25L6405D which is the 8MB chip, however the right chip which I believe is supposed to be the 4MB BIOS chip, comes up as a 16mb chip an MX25L12805D 16MB chip everytime.

Has anyone encountered this?

Hi
This laptop model has two bios chips...MX25L6405 (8Mb) and MX25L3205 (4Mb)
You need MX25L3205 only

It appears mine has a MX25L12805D 16mb instead of 3205 4mb.  The 6405 chip I have identified it's 8Mb
