M17X R4 bios chip location?

Recommended Posts

  • 8 months later...

The picture of the BIOS above is great! Thanks Hyperfish. Would anyone know where the EC chip is located on the M17x R4 motherboard? My son blind flashed the bios and it bricked the motherboard. I've ordered and received a new bios chip and It also came with an EC chip (Embedded Controller I believe). I would like to replace both and just need a location of said EC chip. Any help would be much appreciated.

bios and ec on m17x r4


If I'm not mistaken, the BIOS chip is U48 the 2nd image, and EC chip is U36 the 1st image, so you have them the wrong way around in the caption, which could cause confusion. I'm just posting as I used this as a reference and ended up getting in a total muddle because of conflicting information. Thanks for posting the images however. Both chips are located on the top side of the motherboard, underneath the black adhesive plastic sheet.
