Hi.
A new bios version for the Asus G752VS came out - bios 306. In the description says that "fix the keyboard error".
Someone tried this new version?
This new version fix the problem with "high" voltage on the CPU and the high temps?
Thanks

I've just installed it about 2 hours ago. No noticeable difference yet.

Installed it today and no issues crept up.

Am I a moron, or are we still not on an ASUS uefi bios? (I mean, functional mouse etc, not like an old 90's BIOS).

Looks like another BIOS update was released on 11/11/2016. This is a 2nd BIOS with the number 306 released 2 days after the first.

Version* 306

Description
BIOS 306
Update FW
File Size
2.67 (MBytes)
2016/11/11* update

The filename is slightly different as G752VS_AS306

Any idea what exactly this one does and why there are two BIOS updates with the same version number of 306?

EDIT: Just tried to install it but WinFlash says that the BIOS file is older than your current BIOS version. Very weird....

I've compared the ROMs in the G752VSAS306.zip and G752VS_AS306.zip and they currently match 100%. So nothing is changed other than the name/listing on the ASUS Support page.

They must be in the process of updating it.

WinFlash needs the /nodate command to flash same or older BIOS version over anything newer; It can be set in the WinFlash shortcut (after quotation) target field or in CMD if you don't use the GUI way.

Went to use my laptop tonight and could not get the keyboard to work at all. Had to resort to using a USB keyboard to get anything done. At the latest bios and have installed the latest ATK package. The only button that does work for me is the recording button near the macro keys. Hope they can find a solution to this soon.

Used the newer firmware update. It made the keyboard issue worse. Before, a plugged in USB keyboard would work 100% of the time. Now, i have to replug it sometimes so it starts working. Oh and the integrated keyboard obviously still doesn't work [until windows has booted] if the laptop was shut down with a keyboard plugged into USB.

Also, word of warning, updating resets the SATA controller to RAID mode for some reason.

I updated because I guess I just can't stop Asus Live Update for running. I finally killed everything in the task scheduler to see if that helps.

The only thing I noticed now, is that in the Gaming Center app (not 100% sure if I have that name right), the Hot Zone lighting option is gone now. I use to have more options on the right than I do now, but the only one that I can tell that's missing is the Hot Zone. I haven't had any issues with the keyboard, but that option has never worked or done anything. Now it's just gone. My initial guess was that Asus couldn't make it work and just got rid of it.

You can unistall Asus Live Update. And about the cpu temps and the overheat? This new Bios version fix the problem with the high voltage and overheat?

Hello,

I just bought an ASUS ROG G752 VS and the speakers make a popping soudn everytime the audio channel opens and closes (it's quite annoying). I really don't want to return the pc. I tried to update the audio drivers and asus live update. Does this bios resolve this issue?

I have downgraded to 304 as 306 has another absolutely crippling issue for me - it drops my Samsung EVO 500GB SSD from windows (wtf asus?!). Upon first access, literally, the program/explorer crashes and the entire drive disappears as far as windows is concerned.
