Any ways to force recover Security Chip?

#1 Post by Inst » Wed Mar 13, 2019 3:53 am

I think I've inadvertently fried my security chip, probably without even remembering that I've done so. In this case, is there any way to force recover it?

For instance, if the disable command is sent (is it even possible to send a disable command?), is it stored on the CMOS, stored on the security chip, or a physical change in the security chip (i.e, a fry capacitator)? If it's stored on the CMOS, can it be reverted by force removing the laptop battery and restoring CMOS to factory?
