I have an Acer Aspire 9300 and had a bios flash failure. Now my laptop is dead and the usual recovery procedure does not work.

My next choice is to build a programmer (already done) and connect to the board externally and reflash. My problem... Acer puts a sticker on the bios chip and when I peeled it away I found that not all of the chip info was present. I could only read that it is an MX chip, model number beginning with 29LV80 and the rest is gone (I see enough to know there is more).

I can get my hands on another working machine if I could find a utility that could identify the bios chip type and model. I've already tried CPUID-z and it just tells me vague bios info on this machine. On my desktop it tells me everything. I need something else, any ideas?
