i have a laptop equipped with GIGADEVICE chip, attached the photo for the ram chip
I don't see any RAM chip in the picture. That GigaDevice chip is a flash chip, though. Looks like it's a 512 KiB (kibibytes) part.
Another interesting thing I see is the big square chip to the right of the flash chip. Sure, I only see a small part of it, but it looks like it says "ITE". It's probably an EC (Embedded Controller). If it is an EC, then it's very likely that the flash chip is directly connected to it, which makes in-circuit reflashing harder: powering the flash chip often powers the EC as well, and the EC starts talking with the SPI flash. Having two or more active masters on a SPI bus almost always ends up badly (not working).
i can't seem to proceed with flashing the bios with flashrom version 1.2
i not sure if this chip being supported
wondering if it's supported or i did something wrong?
Logs, logs, logs... What would we do without them? :P You can append the `-o logfile.txt` command-line argument to your flashrom command to generate a log file. Then, you can paste it on paste.flashrom.org (or send it as an attachment, I don't really care) so that we can see what exactly went wrong.
If you're using a Debian-based distribution and flashrom complains about -o not being supported in standalone mode, add `-VV` instead and copy the resulting output. If redirecting to a file, remember to also redirect stderr!
