    Yes, I know the most reliable method for getting the model # of the IC chip is disassembling my computer to have a look in it on the system board, but I want a program for that.

    Thanx.

    Google CPU-Z. Great little program for CPU identification.

    Thank you, JBenal.
    I just downloaded & installed it, but it did not show BIOS chip info including IC model #, only software info like BIOS ver etc instead...
    Almost nothing more than AIDA, SIW...

    use flashrom -p internal -v
    from linux or dos, it shows exactly the identified bios chip
    btw the dos version is the latest one compiled by me on 31.08.2014

    Thank you, nexus76.
    I gave it a try, but it did not show the IC model (like 25q64bvsig, etc etc,...)

    I found no entry in AIDA64 for hardware info on the BIOS chip...

    I think 下载区 means "Download Section" because I found lots of DL links to programs there.
    I will join the forum to ask people out there where I can find what I want, but have no idea how to join it...
    How can I do that?
