Compaq Armada 1750 BIOS hardware replacement
I've gone and made a 'bush league' error and lost my power-on password. The truth be known I used a strong password with special characters that the BIOS write utility was more than happy to accept when writing to the FLASH target but are rejected at the power-on password prompt (I didn't do enough homework, silly me).
I have it on good authority that I'll have to replace the BIOS chip itself and given that HP has acquired Compaq I doubt that they'll entertain my service request (posted it to the support site earlier this morning) for such a late model product. Does anyone know of wher I can obtain a replacement BIOS chip?
