I have Lucky Star 5I-TX1 mainboard, and Award BIOS 4.51PG, win 98 and P200 mmx.

when I try to upgrade bios everything goes just fine until the moment the chip should be erased, but instead of chip being erased I get the "error erasing chip" message.

HELP!!!

Check jumper on motherboard "BIOS Protection" or similar. Consult
your motherboard manual for details.

I see 3 possibilities:

1) You didn't set the FLASH programming jumper on the motherboard.
2) You aren't using the correct FLASH program.
3) Your motherboard doesn't have a FLASH chip. Many use standard EPROMs rather than FLASH to save money.
