Today i updated my CH341A programmer (3.3v FIX). I'm using other software for read BIOS chip, but reading data absolutely identical with files read earlier.

Hello, sorry for my english. I soldered the chips back to the board, the laptop did not start, I looked at the board again and found that the sixth pin was soldered on one of the chips. After the soldering, everything started and, lo and behold, the admin password disappeared, but the Endpoint Security Controller inscription appeared. In any case, it's better than not having access to BIOS settings. Now everything works except this warning at startup.

if you modify the main bin (unlock) and then write it back, the ec chip sees that it has been played with, then it puts the old backup back with password back in, the newer hp you should not do the old way, this gives these problems and many errors

Upload the dump from the second bios chip.

Program only this (second) chip with the attached file, the other stays as is.

I programmed just the second BIOS chip with updated Bin files you send me, but no luck. Now what happens is the LED on the power jack blinks 5 times fast & stops & then again blinks 5 times & stops & this keeps on going in a loop till I remove the power cord. It does not turn on at all even after pressing the power ON/OFF button on the keyboard. Kindly re-check please. Before this all was working fine except for the ADMIN BIOS Password. Thanks

Check the content of the chip, did you use verification? Also check the soldering of the chip and nearby components, make sure you didn't knock of resistor or something else at the surrounding area.
Edit: also check the soldering of the other chip.

Yes, it did a Flash verification after programming was complete, I did not do a verification later, I will do all what you told me & get back to you... Thanks

The safest method for verifying the contents is to read the chip after programming and compare the resulting file with the source. This eliminates any doubt, and you can proceed to soldering the chip to the board.
In this way, each step of the process is verified, and in the event of a problem, only the last step can be checked - namely the soldering to be inspected.
Otherwise, everything has to be done again from the beginning, because it is not certain at what stage the mistake was made.
This also applies to the initial reading of the chip with the original (containing the password) dump. Two or three content dumps need to be made that are compared to each other. If they are the same then it is certain that the content has been read correctly.

The procedures described above can take five minutes longer, but save five hours of headaches.

Sir, after writing/flashing the chip it says programming successful & Auto Verification Success., but when I again verify the flash BIOS, it gives me errors, why is this so??? I even changed with another Brand New 25Q256JW , still the same error. Thanks for the reply in advance.

Read again my previous post, do not rely on a automatic verification process built into the software.
Check the contact between the chip and the adapter

Sir, I checked all the contacts on the chip & they are fine & no knocked off components. I have no idea why I am get the verifaction error over & over again. I took another Physical Programmer CH341A. It writes well but upon verification, it gives Verification errors too. So as you told me, I did a manual Verification off the BIOS Chip dump & the bin file you send me. EXCATLY THE SAME in HxD. Upon this verification I was satisfied & soldered the flashed chip on the motherboard. All worked fine without any Admin Password. Thanks you Very much Vesko256 for your GREAT HELP/WORK. It was very nice & kind of you to take out time & remove the Admin PW. 100% Works. Thanks

Thank you very much for your reply!

I can't find any with 16mb, I have two chips, one on each side of the board, I attach the two bios.

Thank you very much!
