Default Help with locating IBM bios on laptops

Does anyone know how to locate the bios chip on IBM laptops? I can find the AMTEL labeled chip but the the numbers do not match those being suggested. Is there more than one AMTEL chip on IBM MB's?

Is there a reason you must know?

A friend purchased a number of laptops from Lenovo and a few are locked, I was hoping to research the chips and hopefully find a way to unlock versus switching the MB.

Sadly there is no way to confirm or deny the validity of the request. It is the internet after all. All we see is a bunch of text. Without being able to confirm that your request is legit we have to apologize for the fact that we will not be able to assist you. Given that they are Levono Laptops your best course of action will be to contact the manufacturer directly and ask them if there is anything they can do for you.
