Below we show which tools are used to remove specific BIOS chips, these are available in the online shop
BiosflashUK provides this information at your own risk!
The following sequence shows how to remove PLCC and DIL devices with the extraction tools(ENSURE ALL POWER IS OFF AND OBSERVE ELECTROSTATIC HANDLING PROCEDURES) :-
Locate prongs of PLCC extraction into the two diagonal corners of the brown socket as marked in the diagram
Next pressing down (light but firm), on the tool; squeeze the sides in, and the device will pop out!
Here we show the device out of the socket, notice the flatted corner on the device, when refitting this must align with the flatted corner of the brown plastic socket!!!
Below we show how to use the DIL extraction tool, make sure the motherboard is held down, ease the chip out with the tool, it will pop out.
Please take notice of correct alignment when refitting the device, notice the half-moon shape on the top of the BIOS chip. On the actual printed circuit board, one can see a white outline marker with an indentation(shown above the upside down u25), this must be aligned with the half-moon shape on the top oy your device.
