<pre wrap="">Hi John
Please use the linuxbios list for inquiries.
<pre wrap="">1. Can you tell me which bios chip is enabled by each wire jumper? The
two wires are called #1 and #3 but which enables original bios and which
enables new bios on plcc-32 socket? On your photograph you do not label
<pre wrap=""><!---->Sorry, i don't know anymore. If you find out, tell me :-).
<pre wrap="">2. If I power on my PC without bios chip inserted into plcc-32 socket
can this damage the motherboard? Even if I enable the empty socket by
<pre wrap=""><!---->I don't think so. I'm pretty confident that it won't do any harm.
I've attached a photo of my MB with PLCC socket soldered in place. The
red wire, when shorted to ground, activates the original BIOS chip. The
red wire is the one closest to the 10k resistor.<br>
Also, I've powered on my PC several times with an empty PLCC socket
without any damage, just to confirm your findings.<br>
