    EDIT: now dealing with a motherboard repair - techie says the BIOS chip is not getting any voltage (but the rest of the board is, including all fuses which are good) and there is a small part missing from the board right next to the main BIOS chip, not sure if it's a cap or resistor ... anybody share any secrets? Board schematics or the likes? Maybe a photo of their machine teared down?

    No I am not sending it back to Razer to pay £1500 for a cap or resistor.

    Unfortunately no, I’m not a hardware techie guy, but they’ll swap all motherboard for that single defect I think that made repair cost costs almost a blade. Hope someone more specified with hardware will pop up here.

    Thanks for the reply bud - yes I'm aware, I'm neither rich or stupid enough to pay £1500 for a cap or resistor.

    Even a picture of a RB17 Pro torn down would help if someone out there has it. Especially the area next to that main BIOS chip.

    He showed a lot pictures on that areas I assume, is that near ssd right? Not sure if it’s clear enough.

    Unfortunately the chip and parts I need to see are underneath that copper heatsink :/

    Any of you lovely RBP17 2019 users with a SPI programmer able to give me a dump of all the BIOS chips on your board? :)

    Rewriting chip now shows keyboard lights but turns off immediately !?

    EDIT: This chip shows empty - surely this is not right? Can anybody supply a dump?
