Hi, I need reprogram the Bios Chip, but there isn't any information on the chip, my question is, How I identify the Bios chip. I did look the motherboard diagram but there isn't any chip picture. I do have a desktop h8 1010 hp pavilion HPE

Welcome back to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
Please explain what reprogramming the BIOs chip means.
Are you looking for a BIOS update from HP?
The only BIOS update for your PC when running Windows 7 can be reviewed at this (Link).

Did you try pulling the MB CR2032 battery to reset CMOS? Try a new MB battery while you are doing this.
HP normally uses an AMI BIOS. Many motherboards use a Winbond BIOS chip.
Your PC was released for sale in 2011. HP would, probably, not be able to provide a solution at this point. Maybe HP can reprogram the BIOS.
I am sure there are unapproved hacks on the web somewhere.
You might be able to purchase a refurbished HP Carmel MB somewhere.

You can try a repair shop where they can take out the chip and re-program it in a special machine then put it back on the board.
It happened to me once on a minipc with a corupted bios...and that was the only solution...and they fixed it!
It will be cheaper than trying to find another motherboard too!
Hope this helps! Good luck
