An EPROM programmer and an empty BIOS Flash chip is handy if you want to update a motherboards BIOS, but the motherboard is not booting anymore; meaning you can not update the BIOS from software.
Conrad has 7 different universal programmers available at their flash EPROM programmer section. Look for one that supports EPROMs, EEPROMs, Flash-EPROMs, serial-EPROMs, microcontroller, GALs, PALCEs and Low-voltage components.
BIOS chips come in all sizes, but as the programmers are universal you can buy adaptors for all kinds of BIOS Chips.
