I have the same issue. I tried with both ASProgrammer and the CH341A program. I have tried reading the contents of the bios multiple times, and I get different results, so my guess something is getting corrupted somewhere (or maybe a bad chip?).
On AsProgrammer, I get the following error:

For the other program, I took a screenshot.

@LattePanda, could you respond to this thread? If there is no way for me to revive my LattePanda, I'll try to reach out to customer service.

I ended up buying some chips of eBay, replaced the faulty BIOS chip, and everything works again now.

Buongiorno ho seguito la guida ma non riesco a leggere L'IC. nel mio caso la sigla è
25LQ64CVIG. ho erronaemente con win10 funzionante aggiornato il bios con un file errato. risultato al riavvio led blue e rosso. ho acquistato il programmatore ma non vuole saperne di funzionare. mi dice chip connesso legge ma i risultati sono tutti F. ho una tlro minipc funzionante con il medesimo chip ...ho provato anche quello ma nulla. parlo da ingnorante ...forse non è compatibile essendo un ic con sigle differente?

Try switching the clips (If you use it) around. I found that when I clip on the connector to the programmer a red led lights up. Mess around with your programmer till it works. Also, check if you have the winbond w25q64 chip instead. Hope that helps!
:D

I suggest you use AsProgrammer on win10 and use gd25q64. Check to make sure you have good connections. If you have a clip with your programmer ^^^Look at my previous post^^^, make sure that all of your connections are good. It should have a red light if the IC is still connected to the board. Make sure you are using the right bios and press erase, then program with the file. If you read afterwards, it shouldn't be all F. If you boot up and it looks like it's working but you get no HDMI picture, read here http://www.lattepanda.com/topic-f10t1175.html
