@James-Osbourne Are you asking where the BIOS Chip is located? If yes, I must let you know that there's not much information available about the chip as we neither support nor recommend chip level servicing, if the device requires a chip replacement, you are referred to HP support to replace the motherboard as per HP Guidelines, that said, here's all I can help you with:
Here's the motherboard blueprint/layout for your reference:
And the picture of the motherboard (original)
P.S: Welcome to HP Community 😉

Great. Now I can find the battery.
Thank you for your help. That old motherboard is full of ram and has a low-end professional video card and a lot of Video software installed. I think I I shall identify the next upgrade motherboard that will accept the DDR3 memory.
For 18 bucks I can get a new BIOS chip with the latest version of the CMOS, if I cannot find an upgrade board that is compatable.
Thank you for your help.
