Probably a stupid yet simple question to answer.

How do I factory reset my G752VS to do a clean install of windows 10? I don't seem to get any options when rebooting.

Have you tried a F9 on boot?
Before you do anything back up your eSupport folder to a safe location. Is there a serious problem that you can't fix that you want to restore to factory condition? If not there is probably no advantage to doing this.
eSupport folder contains all your drivers and software some software that is not available on the Asus Support Download site. So do not lose it.

I've tried F9 but nothing happends. I experience this occasional quick screen flash/flickering which isn't that disturbing really but I've have had a bad experience with another laptop that started doing that as well and ended up failing all together. So the reason why I wanted to do a clean install is to potentially eliminate a software problem.

Check out your manual, pretty sure the procedure is there, there is a copy of your manual in the eSupport folder.

You can download and create a windows 10 recovery usb for free. Just plug it in and select it as the primary boot option in the BIOS. It will bring up several options, including a fresh installation of windows 10 that will completely wipe all data.

The process can be found here.
