    Im a little lost here ... where is the password ? on the bios ? you had no password set and now it wants one ?
    and 'you pressed the esc key multiple times' why ?
    Excuse me for not knowing .. is this to enter bios on this model .. not Del ?
    Windows password blue box ? And you didnt have a window password set ? this would have nothing to do
    with flashing the bios ?
    yep Im lost .. this doesnt make sense to me .... yet.

    Sorry for not being clear, there is only one account on my laptop and its protected with a password. And before I used the pressed the escape key while the Asus logo was on the screen, to disable my mousepad (i was using a separate mouse) so i assumed i needed to press the escape key (to enter the bios).

    Where are you at with this issue now? Can you boot into Windows? Can you enter the BIOS?

    EDIT: Glad to hear you got things workin'!

    Well everything was going good until i got another GSOD while playing the same game, League of Legends. I followed all the steps, reformatted my usb, added the 3 files onto it, restarting my computer, pressed the delete key when the asus logo appeared, the bios screen showed up and i selected my usb and typed "vflash" it said that it updated my computer and i needed to restart. So i restarted and I still get GSOD.

    Have you updated both the BIOS and the vBIOS? Have you confirmed that the updates took and that the version number is newer? Are you using the graphics drivers provided on the ASUS website?

    The drivers are on your notebook's page:
    http://support.asus.com/download.asp...en&p=3&m=G73Jh

    Unfortunately the last posted drivers are from 2010 so they may have issues with some newer games but it's a good baseline because you know that ASUS tested them. If you are stable with the old driver then try newer ones from AMD.

    Updating the BIOS is relatively easy. Format a usb flash drive with FAT32 and put the bios file from your laptop's download page (linked above) on it. Make sure it's plugged in when you boot and then just use the easy flash tool in the BIOS.

    I downloaded everything, so on the usb should i have:
    Atiflash.exe
    the bios file
    vflash.bat

    Correct? Also after installing the graphics driver, it said Catalyst Command Center has stopped working and all my icons on my desktop are faded. Ill be back in an hour or two. Thanks!
