It shouldn`t be a Cypress chip.Choose the chip manually by the part number on top.If it is a cypress chip then youve found the wrong one.

Look for the bios like the one in the attached picture,its on the right side, it could be a macronix chip marked MXIC

Wrong,see post #7 .The W25Q80 is 8 megabits,not megabyes.It is 1MB megabyte, an 8MB bios will not fit onto it

W25Q80: 8M-bit / 1M -byte (1,048,576) datasheet - https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datash...ND/W25Q80.html

If you are using a chip clip, remove all batteries from the main board, including the CMOS battery.

The chip is not SOIC16 ,it has 8 legs,so choose @SOIC8 .The programmer probably read it ok but check it yourself next time and choose the chip manually by the part number on top of the chip and the type of package, SOIC8,SOIC16,WSON8 etc

The sticker on the heatsink is the part number for the heatsink. The sticker or QR code will be on the motherboard !
