This is a 4Mbit 3.3V LPC flash chip.

You could go all the way up to 16Mbit with a SST49LF160C-33-4C-NHE,
or for 8Mbit try SST49LF080A-33-4C-NHE.

Another 8Mbit option is Winbond W39V080APZ.

I found no offers for these in .ie.

http://bios-repair.co.uk/bios/eeprom.htm have 16Mbit SST, 8Mbit SST
and 8Mbit Winbond. I would buy SST. We've seen some Winbond chips
fail mysteriously. :\
