EPROM stands for "Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory." The EPROM chip inside your computer stores key information including BIOS (Binary Input/Output System) and smart battery data. If you plan on selling your computer to someone else, you may want to reset the EPROM chip to its factory default settings. Note that you may require administrative rights to perform this task.
