I'm a total noob when it comes to EPROMs but I have 2 PCI VGA cards here which are fundamentally the same hardware, but which have different BIOSes, one of which performs better than the other. I've tested this by swapping the BIOS chips so I know it works - what I want to do is copy the good BIOS, burn it to a new EPROM, and put the copy into second card.
The card in question is below - I've done a bit of reading here and and people are recommending the TL866CS programmer which I can find easily online.
What I want to confirm before I dive in though is:
- is this programmer suitable for the sort of chip I need? It obviously needs to be able to read the old one and write a new one. Alternatively I could just skip the read and try and ones uploaded here: http://www.vgamuseum.info/index.php/cpu/item/ … logic-ark2000pv
- what sort of chip do I need??
Thanks for any help.
