View Full Version : Suggestion: Dual Bios chips

A suggestion that Asus should include two bios chips in the future on their ROG laptops. That way if someone flashes the laptop and it become bricked, it could be reset to default factory BIOS.

No need, there is a backdoor that can be used to recover and reset BIOS :)

Check this thread Downgrade BIOS 209 from 217 then Laptop wont boot. (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?32476-Downgrade-BIOS-209-from-217-then-Laptop-wont-boot.&highlight=g75vw+bios) for the G55VW model, but the procedure is similar for other models and there are a few more posts about it floating around on the ROG forums if you're interested.

Basically, pressing CTRL+Home and the power button with the original ASUS Windows image or bios *.BIN file on the C: drive is supposed to recover the bios from a bad flash, but unfortunately, it doesn't always work as you may find in some of the other posts on the ROG forums from people who have tried it.
