One serial matches what I found earlier, other one is not shown in those stickers, but sometimes it's not.
Also, missing one image possibly, please pop out the memory stick, is there any sticker underneath it?

The only thing that's below the ram stick is like a black cover that's glued down to I assume some chips on the motherboard.

I mean underneath the memory, if you remove the stick. Is that what you meant too? You can't see other side of the board without taking it complete out can you? I believe I found the block that contains the board specific info, at least one copy of it, but without a full proper dump, or BIOS region dump, from this same or similar (one of the other two models) I can't confirm it's proper exact location or if it should be in two places like many Asus.

Did you program in the other BIOS I sent yesterday and board is running now? If yes, dump BIOS with FPT or programmer and send me a copy, I unlocked FD so you can dump entire BIOS with FPT if you want (FPTw.exe -d SPI.BIN)

If you remove the memory stick completely, there's a black plastic cover that's like glued on top of some bios chips I believe.

I did not flash the chip yet. If you want me to do that without the rest of the information, I can do that.

It can't be on top of BIOS chips, since you already know where the BIOS is an dumped from it. Maybe some mosfets or some other similar chips. It's OK, don't remove the cover, I doubt there is any sticker under there like I expected since there is chips there.

Yes, I assumed you'd already be booting the system once I sent you that BIOS the other day Big Grin It's fine to do, but just wont have the info so windows might not activate, or stay activated, but you can see if LAN/WLAN is working or not. I'll try to find a dump from one of these systems so I can get the position of this info correct.

* Edit, I found another user dump, now I can make full proper BIOS with your info. I will make one with NVRAM and one without, so you can test if the one without NVRAM keeps windows activated or not, if it doesn't then I will find and replace with your key. Never mind, I don't like the look of this files keyed info area, still checking around for something that looks more like what I expect.

Ahh! Only site I've found free good dumps, I can only get one a day, so tomorrow I will try next model and hope for better file

erased and blanked the chip.  now writing the new bios file you provided yesterday.  once it's done, read & verified, I'll take a fresh dump and attach it here.  after that, I'll boot up the laptop to see if it's somewhat working and report back!

I'm going to boot it up here now and report back in a few minutes.
