If the bios is corrupt you need a new board or a new bios chip put on it and that is not an easy thing to do. They could not find a same board replacement?

Hi, no, said they maybe able to get one from china but not recommended. I think I can get one from Lenovo but just wondered if I could fix own, or not worth it? Thanks.

Hi, talking of chipset, can you tell me if processor is tied to chipset. The i7 cpu I have came with a Z75 motherboard, just wondering if I can use a H61 chipset board, as they seem available. I understand about socket being same, but not sure over chipset. Thanks

Don't they need the board working to run that?

Can you link to the board model your looking at, the difference between the h and z chipsets is the z has features like ocing unlocked cpus, more advanced bios features ect. The h is basically get a non k sku like your i7 and throw it in and just do work. No bells, no whistles.
