    Hi Renzo88, I ended up ordering a new G75VW BIOS chip from Biosdepot on Ebay and soldering it onto my motherboard (after some practice with an old laptop mobo). Unfortunately, the BIOS file I recovered has a size of 6MB and is only as good as the ones available from Asus's website so I'm afraid I can't help you there. :/

    Edit: Good to hear you got it working in the end ��

    Hope it helps millions of G75VW owners as it worked for me.

    Does anyone on here still have this file? I attempted to flash a file found on a chinese forum and I now get into the BIOS but dont see HDD/SDD/USB drives, only DVD.
    I would like to attempt to flash this one from Guido7142. Also if anyone has any suggestions if there is a way to install the BIOS from a DVD I'm curious to try that.

    Alternate 8MB BIOS file source for G75VW

    After searching the net, I found this full dump (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104031378/G75VW.rom) on another forum (http://www.overclock.net/t/1493245/h...k-tutorial/340). As of yet I haven't been able to get EZ-Flash or WinFlash to flash my chip with this, but seeing as I had this problem before I thought I would make a contribution given that I could not acquire the full 8MB BIOS. In the end, I bought a replacement BIOS chip from BiosDepot on Ebay. Although my G75VW was alive again after soldering it in, my keyboard backlight has ceased to function (probably due to some missing code in the new BIOS chip) and have been trying to find ways to bring that back ever since. If anyone knows how to get EZ-Flash to see the ROM file or WinFlash to accept the file, shoot me a message as I'd like to see my keyboard in the dark again. Just to point out - I cannot use an EEPROM programmer as I run the risk of damaging the PCB traces. USE THIS FILE AT YOUR OWN RISK AS I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO USE IT. Enjoy

    You just need to use this to get your keyboard lights working again (follow the guide in there for setup). Special thanks to Gary Key.

    EDIT: compatibility/success

    It works for G46's
    It works for G55's
    It works for G75's
    It works for G750's
    It works for G751's
    (haven't tried on G752's)

    If your descriptor region is already unlocked and the BIOS security configuration settings are all disabled (chipset tab), you should be able to use FPT to do a full BIOS dump/flash; Easy Flash BIOS recovery sees .BIN extensions.

    Hi all,

    I am having the same problem. My G75VW was working fine. I decided to upgrade to Win 10 and install a new SSD, after Win 7 support was discontinued.

    I put the new SSD into the main slot and ran the Win 10 install from a USB stick. Everything went fine. I was able to restart the computer many times with it booting into Win 10.

    Then, I basically wanted to copy all of the files over from my original HDD with Win 7 over to the new SSD with Win 10, but I wanted to do it within Win 7, because I wanted to see which files I'd need and which I wouldn't need and stuff like that. I put the regular HDD into the main hard drive slot, and the SSD into the secondary slot, but when it booted up, it went into Win 10.

    So I went into the BIOS and changed the boot order to get it to boot into Win 7. It still booted into Win 10. I did some more tinkering around with the boot order a few more times, and each time it booted into Win 10...............until it didn't boot into anything.

    I would get a blank screen (even when attached to an external monitor via VGA and then HDMI). I could hear the fans spinning, and the CD drive would make it's sound upon startup, but nothing else. The battery would charge, and the "Charge when off" USB port would deliver power when the computer was off.

    I took the computer apart, checked for any physical damage, disconnected the CMOS battery for over 24 hours, cleaned everything, but nothing seemed wrong. When I put it back together, it worked the same way it did before I took it apart. No display and no Posting after powering on, but the fans would still work and the CD drive would make it's sound upon powering on. Basically it was the same as before, but just cleaner on the inside.



    I've been pouring over the forums for the last few days with no real luck. I've tried the following:

    1. The Left Control Button + Home Button and then hitting the Power Button and releasing the Power Button after it turns on, with various BIOS files on the hard drive and a USB drive. No Luck.
    2. The shorting out the JRST2001 and JRST2002 solder points. No Luck.
    3. Putting the Recovery DVD's into the DVD drive to hope that that would trigger something. No Luck.
    4. Putting the SSD with Win 10 into the main slot, and then the HDD with Win 7 into the main slot with no luck.
    5. Asking it nicely to work. No Luck.

    I haven't tried ordering a new BIOS chip yet, because I see that sometimes that doesn't always work, and I'd have to practice my soldering skills, but will do that if necessary. However, I don't know how to, nor do I have the tools to reprogram the chip through the API programming thing mentioned periodically. I have also seen some mixed results among people in the forums as to whether the new BIOS chip and programming actually works.
    Also, the link for the file from Guido7142 doesn't appear to work anymore, so I can't even download that to test it out.


    Again, before I start ordering a new BIOS chip, I wanted to clarify a few things with the community to make sure that I was doing the Control + Home procedure right.

    I have the original hard drive, but I did originally upgrade from Win 7 Home to Win 7 Pro, shortly after I got the computer in 2012. But when I connect the hard drive via USB to another computer, I can view the System Reserved recovery partition, but I don't see the G75VW.BIN file anywhere on the recovery partition, or on the regular C: Drive path. Nor do I see that file on the recovery DVD's that I created when I first got the computer.

    But poking around the forums, I found that you should download the original 207 BIOS from ASUS's website, extract it directly to the USB Drive and the Recovery partition, and then you can rename it to G75VW.BIN and a few other things and that that should work, but it didn't in my case.

    So I was wondering if there was somewhere else that I should be looking for that original BIOS BIN file on my hard drive, or on the recovery media, because I can't seem to find it. Or if there were more specific instructions regarding what files should go where on the hard drive and on the USB stick when trying to do the Control + Home method, because I think I've been doing it right, but I'm not really sure, as there is a lot of various forms of information out there, and I wanted to make sure that I was doing it right.



    I know that this is an old thread, and an old computer, but I absolutely love my G75VW. Prior to this, it was working fine, and is in good condition, and even worked fine with the Win 10 and SSD upgrade, until I started playing around with the BIOS. To the best of my recollection, I believe that I had updated the BIOS a few years ago to the most recent version with no problems. I would love to get a few more years out of this computer, since it is in pretty good condition (other than the whole not turning on thing), and I fell that it would be able to last for a few more years.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Take Care,
    -David

    Have you restored your original Windows 7 Pro HD in it's original slot, remove any other HDs, boot into BIOS, point it toward the original boot partition?

    Your problems started when you tried to start the laptop with two HDs with boot partitions on each.

    Hi jdfrench3,

    Yup, pretty much everything that I tried was with the original Windows 7 Pro HDD in the original slot. *The main problem is that the screen doesn’t turn on, nor does it show up on an external display, so I can’t even get into the BIOS. *At this point, just seeing the BIOS would be progress :\.

    Thank you for your reply.

    OK, then you have a GPU problem, either your GPU card is fired, GPU card connector, display connector fault, display, or even motherboard failure.

    I would suggest you start a new forum post with a new Title maybe "ASUS G75 Does Not Complete BIOS Action (No Display).

    I would also suggest you break down the laptop, reseat the GPU card and reseat the display connector. While in the laptop check that all connections are secure. Once reassembled, reboot the laptop and let us know the results.

    Good Luck
