What's was wrong with 205? Why was it removed and do those who installed it is there any reason to go down to 204?

Thanks

The only visible issue was a screen flicker when starting / restarting the notebook. And maybe some people had a bit higher GPU temperatures but that's not confirmed at all. I had no problems with 205 but decided to try 204. The screen flicker is gone. The boot time seems to be the same but I could hardly tell the difference because it has always been pretty quick. I don't know what could be the reason for the removal. Maybe it could lead to some potential issues with some new drivers but I'm just guessing. I don't think it's necessary to change it.

It was posted on the ASUS G75VX driver download page (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?27696-G75VX-New-205-Bios&highlight=g75vx+bios) That's where I down loaded it from. My concern Mike is why was it removed, was there something wrong?

Thanks

Guys, i cant install the 204 BIOS... "The build date too old" "The BIOS file is older than the current version"

So?

I have the 205 BIOS.

Same for me, the machine don't allow me to downgrade even from the bios screen. Tried also to change name with "203", but he's still watching the date (thst's strange...on asus website the 204 comes with february 2013 in the date but if you load it on the program or on the bios screen it says "december 2012" ... O.o )

I don't think it is necessary to change the BIOS but if you want to do it here's how:

Open Run (Winkey + R) and type:

cmd

A Command Prompt window should appear. Navigate to the installation folder of the WinFlash utility (typically Program Files) by typing:

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\WinFlash

After you get into that folder type:

Winflash /nodate

Ignore the warning about the BIOS being older and Flash it if you want.

thanks for the advice...the machine now is working fine with 205, but with the secure boot disabled it show me red artifact at the top of screen during POST...and it's not a good vision XD (so the 204 will solve this problem?)

I am not sure about that red artifact.

The issue I and most of the people have with 205 is a screen flicker (white in my case) in the top of the screen right after you turn on or restart the notebook (before the ROG logo comes up).

204 fixed that for me.

Is there any official statement from ASUS that we should stop using the 205 bios and revert to 204?

205 was all about UEFI/GOP. Should I downgrade to 204?

@gokica, if that version is working for you, i think it's fine to leave it be; but if you are not comfortable with it, then you have the choice to downgrade.

Would make it easier to decide to downgrade or not if someone from asus would kindly explain why 205 was removed. I am on 205 and would leave it that way but if there is a problem with it, it would be nice to know especially if it going cause issues.

Strange thing happened this morning. I had the laptop just connected to an outlet without battery. I could not start it for some reason. The power button reacted once and the G75VX shut off immediately. Than I could not start it at all. No led turning on on the power button.

I placed the battery and it run just fine. I connected the power adapter and it started charging.

So I reverted to the 204 bios since it seems like it is addressing and issue as such. I will report whether the problem will persist.

I believe @rewben reports a similar issue when he attempted to upgrade his G55 from BIOS version 209. He would then experience a Power button problem. Reverting back to BIOS version 209 resolved his problem, so you're on the right track.

Thanks. I hope I will get rid of this problem with the older bios too.

Download ASUS Winflash (you probably have it in program files (X86)/ASUS/Winflash/ and run it from cmd prompt window as "winflash /nodate". It will start and ask you where the bios file that you would like to flash is.
