I have an Asus G73 Jh best buy model, out of warranty.
I was on bios 209.
downloaded the 213 official bios.
transferred it to Usb flash drive formatted with fat 32
booted into bios, EZ flash.
EZ flash could not see the files. so i cancelled
still in bios i changed the asus fancy start setting.
then selected " save and exit"

Since then the problem starts.
When i push the power button:
1. all the blue lights , light up i.e power, twinturbo, splendid, stealth, capslock, numlock.
2. fans spin up
3. charger light, power light, light up
4. HDD spin up
5. No beep, no bios POSt, nothing on the screen.

Things I've tried so far:

1. Taken out battery, adapter cord, pushed the power button for 45 sec. no luck
2. taken out ram, hdd..........No luck
3. Cmos reset button on the base of the laptop......no luck
WHat should I do?????????????? HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEElp please.
any suggestions? or I'm just left with a paper weight :( :(

I've heard about the crisis recovery mode and blind flash.. what are these?

I saw this on the web. http://www.biosman.com/biosrecovery.html . or http://www.basicinputoutputsystem.com/AMI-BIOS-recovery.htm. I'm not sure which key combinations force boot from the cd-rom, or a external floppy drive .I'm not such which key combinations will force usb drive boot on the G73. I never tried it myself but the only other option is to send to Asus for repair.

don't have a floppy drive, tried that by burning the files on DVD-R... computer did access the files because of the activity LED glowing... but nothing happened after that,
combination I used was ctrl + home.
usb flash drive didn't work as well.

Unfortunately when you have a single BIOS system and you can't even get a post there isn't much you can do. When you have a bad flash the BIOS has to be rewritten by an eprom programmer or the chip has to be replaced with a good one. These are both pretty non-end user operations. Not many people have the equipment to do it.
