What year was this laptop made in?
Some of the older 8088/20286/80386 and even 80486 laptops did not have FLASH BIOS, and you changed the chip. But if the unit is in the 486 and less class, you will not find the chip.
I have an old Atlas Flyer laptop and am looking for a free BIOS update. Can anybody help? I have scoured the web, to no avail!!
