asking is for old HP omnibook 6000.  now I see   mismatch error between LCD dip-switch and eeprom value when replacing mother board,  service manual says you need to reprogram eeprom by "service utilities disk", it seems to be a boot-able floppy with eeprom.exe. I saw old asking about the same issue in experts-exchange and it showed a URL to download  eeprom.exe but unfortunately it does not work today.
I hope someone has the utilities  disk or eeprom.exe and help me.

Foe something as ancient as that I doubt very much you'll be able to get what you want. It is still using a Pentium III. Get a newer notebook. A Pentium III notebook is not worth the time to repair.

Guessing perhaps it might be for nostalgic reasons (I know an elderly couple trying to keep the old PC of their passed away son running for emotional value).
Anyhow, I found this note below, on the url here

"According to HP Engineers "JUST IGNORE THIS & INSTALL THE DISPLAY' (ONLY APPLIES TO VERY ,VERY OLD ANTIQUE COMPUTERS")"

Looks like you can ignore the message.

thank you all,   omnibook  6000 is not mine  I'd like to help my friend.  In my tries so far,  replacing LCD seems to be ok but replacing mother board needs reprograming eeprom on it.  I'll  check  eeprom.exe soon.

I could fix my issue. I extracted stpnldt.exe from eeprom.exe  and  I wrote  correct LCD info to eeprom with stpnldt.exe. it worked.
