I am new to the ASUS computers and have a G74sx. I guess you could say that I am not exactly computer / windows savvy either. Therefore, I don't know what this BIOS thing is all about and my NVIDIA driver isn't updating from the beta version that was released back in 6 DEC '11.

So can someone give help me with a dumbed down, step by step on updating this?

i hope someone at ASUS takes notice, seems this problem maybe on all G74Sx note books!; because I am observing the very same situation. " BIOS FILE VERSION DOES NOT MATCH BIOS ROM VERSION" and there seems to be no executable download to remedy this matter....:

Yeah, also hope ASUS stops recommending its consumers to update BIOS via Live Update.
ASUS techs should know better than this. It's an extremely risky way of updating BIOS for the G74.

I think BIOS update is a totally different kind of updating. Hence, no executable file for it.
But there is a better way. Download BIOS update (202 or 203) via the ASUS Download site or here:
