I need to replace a BIOS chip from a bricked Thinkpad W520 motherboard. I will desolder the old chip and solder the new one in place as soon as it arrives in the mail, which shouldn't take more than a week.
Almost finished disassembling it all, but I have a doubt, the BIOS chip in the W510 was in U30 position, is it the same in the W520? The chip does indeed match the description, however there are a lot of SOIC8 chips on the mobo. Does anybody know where I could find more information on this motherboard?

Okay so, I need all of your help. I'm doing a Samus cosplay, but I would really love to have the energy whip she uses. The only problem is, I wouldn't know how to start making one really.
I've been told a retractable cord with EL wiring might be good, but I would love to have any other considerations on how to approach this. I would ask the Cosplay thread, but they really dont build or make much of their own things.
Thank you for your help :)
