    @TokoDude, although winflash should be considered safe, the safer one is ezflash. you can spam f4 key during boot to bring up the ezflash; or go into your bios menu and run it from there.

    from ezflash, you can navigate to locate your bios file. the preferred method is still to format a usb stick with fat32, extract the bios file directly from the archive into it, then use ezflash to access and use it.

    No luck until now. Sad ...

    Can someone with the same model as mine (G75VW) send (ynima@hotmail.com) or upload BIOS file for me ? (It's in C:, and the name are G75VW.BIN, it's hidden). My last attempt is to change my BIOS file and try again. I don't know if downloading one from ASUS web site would be good, because the extension on file is different. I don't know if is just the extention, or when you flash the BIOS, EZFlash or WinFlash compile the file or something. I think it's my last guess.

    Thanks.

    Awesome. ASUS Brazil have a 40 days of waiting until they can help me (and problably charging me). I hope when using another computer .BIN file the EZFlash pops up.
    And if someone have same model (G75VW), please send me the file.

    I'm having the exact same problem as Jihilian... I did all the exact same things as him and nothing worked. The difference is that I do not have any .BIN file in my C. Is it possible that this is due to the fact that just before my system bricked I did a fresh install of Windows 7 ? Help anyone please.

    PD: Jihilian, did you get any results so far ?

    Aaand another victim. Luckily, I voided the warranty by opening the brick up to access CMOS. Now, I am, how they say, f*cked.

    Thanks ASUS!

    Never again.

    Sounds like you're blaming ASUS for voiding your warranty, but really that's your own fault.

    Okay, your backup System BIOS is located in a hidden partition and not on the C:\ Partition_ Its something else (can't really say) I know this because I've been able to locate this hidden partition using Asus EZFLash in the BIOS and somehow its able to find the BIOS file located within a hidden partition. This hidden partition is your first Recovery Partition that is around 900mbs in size and it contains a few important things like the backup Original System BIOS_ Your backup bios is usually named G75VW.BIN or G75VX.BIN

    I don't know how to access it, but I know its there_ your best shot at fixing your bricked laptop is to have someone burn you a working BIOS image into a new BIOS chip and soldering it on to make it work_ Or else you can piggy back it and boot it up_ Meaning you take the working BIOS chip and touch the pins to the dead bios chip_ Attempt to boot and if it works let it boot, remove the bios chip that you used to piggy back it and then Reflash your bad bios via Windows and hope its successful. (The method I describe does work, but this has been only attempted on desktops)

    I know I bricked mine a few weeks ago, it sucked real bad_ but Asus agreed to fix it for me and I got mine repaired all within a 3 week time span, so my experience with customer service was really good =]

    If you did the windows 7 install and you deleted your recovery partitions then you are out of luck_ The backup BIOS file is not in the C:\ Partition but located in one of the recovery partitions that Asus creates on the original HDD Drive. If you still have your original recovery partitions then you might be in luck.

    I hear that key combo FN+HOME or something like that barely works and most of the time doesn't work for most people.
