comment How to reset bios/rom to factory setting if computer do not even run
I rescued a non-booting Intel ATX mobo once - I had to write the firmware to a 3.5" floppy, set a jumper on the motherboard and power on. Nothing came up on the screen, but the floppy drive activity light came on for a bit, then it shutdown. When I reset the jumper and powered on, it came up normally. Happy days :)

comment Where is the BIOS stored?
UV-EPROMs (EEPROMs) were never intended for consumer reprogramming AFAIK. When a device goes back to the factory for repair or whatever, it's handy to be able to upgrade the firmware by swapping out or reprogramming the EEPROM.
