    Don't buy single kits. They suck. Buy quality. Don't try to bargain shop flash tools.
    Those chinese made prebuilt clips suck and wear out after 1 or 2 attempts (Even if they fit). Like some that are required with the 1.8v adapter (1.8v adapter is required for flashing video card vbioses), I had 2 of 3 of them. One wouldn't even stay on, the other didn't fit (too thick). the third still works but is annoying. So I use my Pomona 5250 clip which is higher quality.

    Don't try to bargain shortcut your way through life.

    You can also buy Dediprog SF100, it cost more but it has better support and software.

    @Falkentyne

    Is the red dot chip for Bios?

    Edit:

    I also saw the white dot chip in gpu that represents the Vbios i think.

    Sorry but I do not know for sure.
    I only know which is the bios chip on the GT73VR and GT75VR. It should be marked with a red dot, but if there are TWO that are marked with a red dot, then there's a problem. Looks like one is pink on yours.
    One of the two is usually going to be either the Aquantia (sp) chipset bios, or the Thunderbolt chip. I do not know which.
    What I do know is that the thunderbolt chip is NOT bus isolated (the bios and vbios chips are bus isolated), which means it is not safe to read with a programmer. I can NOT give you any advice or tell you more at this point. Usually the main bios chip is a MX25 series (macronix) or Winbond chip, if that helps you. I know it is an 8192K flash size chip.

    On the Gt73VR, it's a red dot, not pink. And it's positioned 'under' the MXM video card close to the ENE chip.

    So maybe its your 2nd picture then.
    Here is the one on mine, before I backed it up during a vbios TDP mod reflash.

    Yeah, the red dot chip on my GT75 is in same position, “under MXM card”.

    Im not sure, but i only saw one red dot chip in laptop. About doing a flash in VBios of GTX1080 not worth the work in my opinion...also i only saw people doing that in clevo laptops. About a Bios flash, the laptop cant have any power right?
