Sorry If I'm out of topic though it seems kinda related to bios though, can I overclocked my system?
if it is possible though sorry again for asking newbie here

I have several issues with my ODD since I had the idea to use it (twice in a year...).
I saw today that my BIOS is v202 so I wanted to download the pdf to update it but it's no more downloadable (no more on servers).
Can someone re-upload it ?
Thank you and happy holidays !
Although the link is no longer valid in quote of the original post, try accessing the PDF attachment included in the original post if you haven't already (I was able to). Also wanted to mention a couple things below, and sorry, I may worry too much, but just don't like hearing about customers who have had bad bios flashes.
1. Not sure how often bios flashes fail, but it does happen if you check around, so you may want to reconsider flashing the bios for the ODD problem. Even if you successfully update the bios it may not help with your ODD problem, so try to get more confirmation it will help first if you can.
2. Consider sending it to your local ASUS service center for diagnostics, or contacting your local ASUS support to check what it would cost you to repair the unit if the bios flash fails (you may be charged for a motherboard replacement assuming it's available) compared to the cost of sending in the unit for diagnostic for the ODD problem if your unit is no longer under warranty.
If you aren't too worried about portability, consider getting an external USB ODD as well?
3. Hopefully other G74Sx owners can jump in if a bios update has helped with their ODD issues, but not sure that it can help and is worth the risk. Anyway, if you still plan to update the bios and can check that *.PDF guide, suggest skipping the USB drive altogether and just downloading the bios to your local hard drive to flash directly from it using Easy Flash, but this probably still will not eliminate completely the possibility of a bad flash, so please be aware of this.
