    Long story short. Windows update wanted bios update and so i proceeded. Computer booted but update failed. Since then my screen wont turn on. Computer starts and lids keyboard, fans turn on but nothing but black screen.
    board model is GH51M LA-K862P
    I need to flash new bios on and ive ordered the ch341a programmer.

    can anyone help confirm which bios chip is correct? Found 2 different ones.

    Winbond 25Q80EWSIG : near the cooling
    xmc qh128ahig : under the ssd disk.

    ive attached pictures.

    Is anyone able to help me with the dump files as soon as ive read them from the chip to get me a flashable bios?

    let me know if any info is missing and ill sort it out. First time doing this aswell so any help appreciated

    Hi, the XMC was the motherboard bios chip. You need to look for another chip, maybe the winbound you have mentionted there?

    The winbound chip is located very close to the Video card Chip ,its only one overthere,i think is that one,but if i will conect it to the CH341a software, i will not able to read the chip and maybe o will see something letters like : Rtx 2060 etc?
