    can someone please tell which chip is the bios/cmos ?
    i want to ground it hoping the bios return to the default settings
    the problem is that i turned something off in the bios and since then the usb ports and the docking keyboard not working neither in the bios nor in the windows
    also the touch screen only work in windows

    a bit difficult to tell since the numbers on the chips are not readable

    The only thing for sure is that the 4 identical chips in the middle are the RAM

    The BIOS may well be held in the CPU which is most likely the centre top chip
    it may be possible that it is in the big chip to the left of that

    there's a high probability that you have "bricked" your unit
