    Yes, already looking for such an option or maybe replace the entire bios chip. I am from Holland.

    Okay. That wouldn't be so far away!
    I come from Germany. You could send your motherboard with power supply and I could reprogram the chips.

    To switch in a more common language that is understandable by the others as well:

    No, not directly. I haven't bricked any mobos at all yet *knocking on wood* but many MXM's in the past. I am not sure, if you can use a programmer to reflash corrupt vBios chips as well?

    I'm still puzzled that it fails on these particular machines; it's a little disappointing, but at least there's a second person who had the same black-screen-of-death. I'm curious to know whether it persists even after @Mapl reprograms the flash with a hardware approach. I could only run the shipping BIOS on my machine, it seems. Even using the hardware approach to program the EEPROM, it would only yield a black screen at power on.

    I know the problem:
    It could be the programming tool, the version!
    Programming software brings the most errors. Better to use a device!

    I used a SkyPro to reprogram (once the software approach failed). The system would only successfully boot with the original BIOS (that I backed up using the software approach). Flashing with any other BIOS (from this thread or the other one), I would only get a black screen - both for software and hardware programmer.

    There seems to be a genuine incompatibility that I don't understand.

    If it really is a chip problem, then it has to be changed, so soldering.
    But there can also be many other reasons why a card doesn't work properly. E.g. Clip has bad contact, a cheap device usually works worse!

    Did you also check the Rome with the original Rome several times after flashing to avoid mistakes?

    Have YOU checked the ROM again after flashing by reading it out?
