check if the model is the same after you remove the sticker

Glue it to a stick and use it for scratching your back.

Often there will be a quartz window under the sticker. You'll need to expose it to UV light to erase it, and then you can program new information into it. Right now it has code, but it can hold any data - even a JPEG.

Sure it does! You just have to get your climates exactly right.

If the label is a sticker, there's a good chance that your BIOS chip is an erasable PROM (Programable Read Only Memory). Removing the label should give you the manufacturer's data for locating info on the chip.

. Sounds like a 9 yo (1998) BIOS (Award) chip for a Pentium (686) to me.
