Default Samsung Galaxy Book Flex NP950QCG BIOS

Hi,

New here. Can I request the BIOS for the following...Samsung Galaxy Book Flex NP950QCG. And also there was 2 chips on the motherboard that resembles the BIOS chip. I included pics in the post. I can't tell which one is it but my hunch is its the WINBOND but at the same time I hope its not because its hard to get to with the CH341A Programmer I bought. If so then I think I would have to modify the clip to get access to those pins.

Thanks.

Your hunch misleads you , the other chip is the right one.

Yeah, it's the GigaDevice one. The Winbond only has 8 Mbit.

My Backup? You mean the one I read from the Chip? Wouldn't that be corrupted?

Did you remove the CMOS battery, if there is one.

I don't think there is a CMOS battery. It's a laptop motherboard. The only battery I see is the actual Laptop battery...I did unplug the connector to the display before but I plugged it back in. It's the connector next to the Winbond chip in the first picture. I disconnected it because I wanted to see if I can connect the CH341A to the Winbond chip. Unless the CMOS battery is on the otherside of the motherboard. Should I disconnect the actual laptop battery?

Edit: Went on ebay to look at the motherboard and I don't see any slot for a CMOS battery.

Is it also possible that the P14AJC is for the Korean version. I see that the Korean version uses Nvidia MX250 for the display and the US uses integrated GPU in the i7 1065G7. It seems like the laptop is booting up but no display.

Did you remove the main battery before you unplugged the connector to the display
