IBM Thinkpad Error 0175: Bad CRC1, Stop POST task

A friend sent a laptop here in my shop. It's an IBM Thinkpad T20. After updating the bios, the said laptop won't boot. It shows this error: 0175, Bad CRC1, stop POST task. All google search points to one direction: a bad EEPROM and the only “solution” according to them is motherboard replacement. I can’t believe it is the only solution out there. Maybe someone can help me?

Any suggestion, question or violent reaction? Feel free to leave a comment.
