yesterday i would flash the newest bios(211) for g751 jt! after start asus winflash the computer shutdown and begin to flash but after a moment before all was done he shutdown and start again! that was the bigin off a loolp!
i have flashed all bioses on this computer with the same procedure but this time there was an error. can someone tell me if a recoveryflash helps and how i did it!
i have performed the try and error game with the renamed bios on hdd/sdd/usb/fat32/ntfs/.bin.BIN.rom etc....
it seems that ctrl+home+powerbutton helps but when the keybordlight goes on nothing else happends and he loops again with the lights on.
in one cl albert has checked that ctrl+home is working in one tread but i cant handle this info!
my last try was usb 32gb fat32 formatted with the renamed bios G751JTAS.BIN and G751JT.BIN on it! hold ctrl+home+power holding
the computer comes on again with keyboard,release button and the happends nothing!
on my n55vd i had a working bios and on this maschine the ctrl+home tips is functional without usb... i have no plan what is to do...rma? oh,no...hate
never touch arunning system(idiot)

Someone posted a while ago that the CTRL+HOME method worked for them when they took out all drives and just put in an empty one with just the file on it and it worked, otherwise it showed the same symptoms as yours.

have read this tread, have took out the drives and put in and 160gb hdd fat32 formatted, with bios 209 renamed on it. but with only hdd without i cant put the laptop in the "keybordlight" on modus
it seems that the light only goes on with usb stick,with hdd there is no reading on it!
thx for helping
p.s. can it be that the hdd with file must be ntfs formatted?

Possibly? Have a go at it, nothing to lose. I haven't seen a FAT32 formatted HDD in more than 12 years, to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of dependancy...having an empty drive with nothing but the file in it is strange enough as it is so...

Id never heard of it done with an HHD but have with a USB and the BIOS renamed to .BIN then CTL+home+pwr button until you see the power light come on then go back off then repeat the buttons and the flash begins.

Two other alternatives.
1) PITA but works......get you tools out and be prepared to spend a bit of time removing the CMOS battery leaving it sit for 20-30 mins then begin the reassembly process.

2) RMA

Looks like you made your choice.

never heard....the fact is on my n55vd i try it out, the bios lay in the root of c(ntfs) but it isnt the first partition when i count the recovery with it. must only hold home+ctrl+power the maschine goes on and the flash begun! easy peasy i know but not on G751 JT. i also think that remove cmos battery help nothing in this case! would say bad programmed bios because 203-208 causing no errors for me with winflash from asus supportpage....

I fixed the BIOS problems on my old ASUS by popping the CMOS battery too - dunno if it would have worked on the G751 but you have to take the whole motherboard out to get to it now...

Yes for Ctrl + home to work your ****.bin must be the only one and on the root of your C:\ it will not work from a USB Thumb Drive.

This doesn't work for some people if it doesn't work for you it would be an RMA item if your in warranty if not, that up to you.

Yes sometimes it won't work. Its much safer to update BIOS/UEFI from Ezflash with in the BIOS itself in the future.

yes i know its safer....but when i read this page http://support.asus.com.cn/Knowledge.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=G751JT&p=3&s=719&hashedid=I3zsjpO34EbUTo7s
there isnt one word about ezflash! on evry maschiene the same same text with winflash procedure.only on g752 page is the procedure described with the ezflash tool shame on again asus
edit: maybe its a bad flash because on german supportpagehttp://www.asus.com/de/Notebooks/ROG-G751JT/HelpDesk_Download/ is only an old version of winflash look at the dates!
on this page http://support.asus.com.cn/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&s=719&m=G751JT&os=&hashedid=I3zsjpO34EbUTo7s
there is a newer version of winflash. i think i got the wrong winflash version for the newest bios. is this my fault there was no other version in germany for win 8.1 64 bit.

Winflash is just a GUI operated version of eazy flash. You just enter the parameters and when it reboots it launches ez flash. The only difference is when you launch from the bios its looking for a USB drive with the file on it which leads to the possibility of it being a corrupted BIOS file or blip while reading from the HDD/SSD where ever you had it.

Well there has always been the chance that upgrading the BIOS can and sometimes does Brick your notebook. Following these forums I would say so far the G752 have been the least likely to brick. The G75 VW were no issue until BIOS Version 221 came out then we were seeing almost daily people with brick Notebooks from BIOS upgrades. Some were rescued with the Ctrl + Home many were not and had to RMA to recover. While there have been a few through the G75VX, G750, G751, it hasn't been a lot of people that actually bricked there notebooks.
I think your probably correct that using the older winflash may have caused your problem, Or it could have just been bad luck. Also one of my always do is to unzip the download directly to the media I intend to use up update with. Copy and Paste that file can cause slight changes that may or may not brick your notebook. Notebooks are just not like desktops that we all have upgrade BIOS/UEFI with out problems for years and years. Seems since UEFI it has become a little more flaky and hazardous not to be taken lightly. I personally never have updated my G75VW beyond 210 no one could tell me of any improvement in 221, 222, and there were lots of Bricked notebooks.
