So I'm really wanting to install the NVRAM chip in Elvis, but I'm a total noob to this idea. I understand that Elvis takes the 6264 chip and I see on a pinside site the implication that I would possibly have to pull one chip and swap in the 6264. I can pull or install a chip just fine--I've done so on sound boards--but I'm left with several questions.
(1) Is this a chip swap or is the 6264 to be installed into an open socket?
(2) Where exactly on the board is the socket? A photo or socket identifier on the board (I have the manual, but I'm still uncertain) would be most helpful.
(3) Does orientation of the chip matter (i.e., is there a top/bottom or left/right), or can it be installed without concern for orientation?
(4) Once the chip is installed, should I just remove the AA batteries and leave the empty case in place?
I could really use some help on this one. I'm sure it's ultimately a simple thing to do but I've been known to do simple things wrong before.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
