Gigabyte have told me that the BIOS chip is made by SST, and the model 
name is SST25LF040A BIOS ROM which is PLCC32 type.

The data sheet and details are at


I am now very confused because I have PLCC32 sockets and these are 
nothing like the BIOS chip which has 8 connections.

(I have two PLCC32 sockets and four unused flash chips to give away, if 
they are no use to this version of the motherboard).

I will probably try to source some of these chips, just in case the rest 
of the problems can be solved.
