I'm literally in them most screwed-up situation any laptop owner can be in..

While trying to update my BIOS, my laptop shut down, causing it to go corrupt, and somehow causing the BIOS chip to burn.

After days of locally searching for a chip that matches my laptop, and even trying some other ones of previous models, none worked, and i can't find any chip for my laptop, i even tried searching online, and failed.

Model: ASUS K52N BGR5 // not under warranty, and i live very far from where i baught that.

i tried other chips i found from the K series , yet all failed, so now i am forced to replace my motherboard, which has an integrated GPU, at an amazing price of 180 dollars...


So here i have 2 questions...

1. Is there anyway i can come up with a soloution to get by replacing the mobo, or find out how and where to get such infamous BIOS chip?

2. Since i'll be forced to replace my mobo, can i aim to get another better mobo with better specs, that can possibly fit into my laptop? is there anyway i can upgrade it without having to re-purchase the stock model?

Thanks :)

1. the only solution is to replace the whole board, you never know if anything else burned. better to get a motherboard replace. i grew up with these problems because i fix them for a living.
2. impossible to find a better motherboard because the case is made for that motherboard, its like putting a samsung motherboard in a iPhone motherboard, the case is specified for that motherboard.

hope this helps! always give a best answer because people really appreciate it! :D
