This video shows how you can desolder a soldered-on PLCC BIOS ROM chip from your board, and then solder on a PLCC socket (SMD type) instead.

This is useful for recovering from a failed BIOS upgrade, and for coreboot (previously LinuxBIOS) users and developers.

See http://www.coreboot.org/Soldering_a_s... for details.

Note that I'm a total newbie when it comes to soldering and I still managed to do this. So there's no reason to be scared by this kind of stuff, everybody can learn how to do it.
