You are describing the things you tried and their outcome very sketchy.
You have not even mentioned if you have used flashrom or the vendor
tools(!). We can not diagnose anything that way. We need to know exactly
what commands you used and what the response was. If you have flashrom
installed already send us the log file generated by
"flashrom -p internal -o flashrom.log" please. That would be a good

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
