    Unhappy No video g75 vw, bios restore to default

    Hi, i recently bought a brand new g75 vw, and I decide to upgrade the hard drive for a ssd. Everything was fine, I install win7 and 8 and was working fine, but I always got friends asking to save info of broken hdd, and most of the time Ubuntu works great when windows dosent, so I try to make my laptop triple boot, and have it native on my laptop but I don't know why I got issues to make it boot, so I thought was something wrong on the bios, maybe something to change on the settings of the bios, but after all I dicede to do it the next day cause I was to tired, so I take out my USB and try to boot windows once but it dosent, showing me a insert boot device message, so I thought.. Maybe is not working because I changed some stuff on the bios, so I take the reset to default option on the bios and it shows me a message of want to quit and save? And I press yes, then .. I got my laptop restarting but without image, and I don't have any idea of what to do! And biggest problem is that I bought this on US like 3 weeks ago and now I'm living on panama (central America) and my "global warranty" dosent apply here. I already try:
    1 take the battery and hold the power on bottom for 1 minute and the plug it to the ac adapter still with out the battery but fail..
    2 take the battery and hold the power on bottom for some time and do it again and afther 2 days plug it, but I got the same result..
    3 turn it on with out the hard drives..
    4 take out the ram ( it has 4 ram Spaces, 2 behind the keyboard and 2 directly where u open the back plate so I remove that one) has 3 ram factory installed but not work..
    5 no sounds, and when it starts power light goes on as well as the hard drive and number lock then but later (2 seconds) just the power light remain.
    Already try the 3 video outputs VGA HDMI mini display port with different cables and monitors each.

    I will like to know if I can upload once again the bios or reset the bios if that is that problem, I really dont know what to do !

    I don't even see nothing once I press the on button, the last thing I do was reset to default all the specs on the bios ( sorry for my bad English, my native language is Spanish, btw all the "bottom" words on this post means button lol )

    Yeah man, a couple of people had that problem here. Seems that when you reset it to default, it doens't apply the right values. You're bricked, and most likely, the only way to fix it will be to RMA it. Now, I don't know how that would work since you live there, you should call ASUS, or PM one of the experts on the forum....Sorry man!

    Here is an explanation by Dreamonic:

    In the event a user makes a change that causes no post, it will adjust any settings made in the BIOS to Failsafe settings. When you change these Failsafe settings back to your own, they become 'optimal' again, even though they are not (loaded defaults) "Optimal" settings at all. This is just how the system sees it and will revert back against it each time this happens.


    The problem with most "bricks" is when these two defaults lose their values from writing a new set when upgrading to a newer BIOS. When people 'restore defaults' after a BIOS upgrade, doesn't matter if sooner or later, it (corrupts) removes these default modes settings, resulting in no post at all after save and exit is done; Some have succeeded in flashing back to their factory BIOS with a USB stick if they no longer had the factory partitioned drive with the existing ROM file (force method using combo keys) when this happens. The reason it's able to work is because of AMI Quickflash.


    Under no circumstance should you restore defaults after flashing to a different BIOS. If you have the factory BIOS and do it, you are more than likely not to experience what everyone else is if they've upgraded. It also varies with each model as they all have different BIOS versions.


    If you flashed your existing BIOS with the same one and with a modded vBIOS that wasn't edited correctly, then all that happens is your display turns off or black and prevents you from loading much further than post. Behind the darkness, your system will go through a series of BSOD errors and will reboot itself preventing you from doing anything else; A blind flash is the only way out of it.


    So how does all this relate?


    Do NOT upgrade your BIOS or one with a modded vBIOS in it if:

    - You plan on loading BIOS defaults at ANY time.
    - Your system is running fine without hitches.
    - You're upgrading (BIOS) for the sake of it being newer
    - Newer BIOS related fixes do not yield importance to your current stable system
    - It's just for bragging rights
    - You don't have enough knowledge about flashing
    - You have no backup plan in case of failure
    - You plan on blaming someone else

    It is not anybody's fault except your own; svl7 and Svet are top notch. In the beginning it's all trial and error. No one else is to blame except your own curiosity. It's because of demand and appreciation that svl7 and Svet even do it for the public. My only gripe with people flashing is this: ALL flashing should be done outside of Windows. If you don't understand why, do some research.


    Myself and several people on the G-forum can mod the vBIOS and unlock BIOS features. We don't share our own with the public because like bignazpwns said, we'll get blamed for something we didn't do. It sometimes can be a simple mistake (done by the person in question) that becomes larger than the problem it's made to be. So to you new flashers, take the necessary precautions and educate yourself, as the risk is entirely yours."

    I think I find a solution, but I am not completely sure of all the steps. I found someone that used to have the same stuffs as me: turn on, black screen, power light on and a couple of seconds the hdd and the number pad indicator, and he fixed (he just do something different to has the issue) by downloading the correct bios, rename the file, put it on a USB, then plug it to the laptop and pressing ctrl + home buttons And turning on the laptop, afther 15 to 20 minuts it suppouse to finish and starts normally, but once again I'm not sure cause my English, and I want to be sure of everything first (the hard drive that comes withe laptop with this file hidden it's formatted) I'm not sure where to find the bios file, the extension of this kind of file.. .bin, .exe, .rom, .210? Also wich is the name i got to renamed, My exact model is g75vw-th71 and here are the links where I find the info

    Please help me cause tech support just suggest To apply the warranty as the solution, but that's not a solution for me..

    Once again sorry for my English.

    Sorry for the delay.
    You can find more information from this thread, but some information is below.
    1. You can download the G75VW 207 bios from the ASUS download site here.
    2. Rename the G75VW 207 bios to G75VW.BIN and copy to your C: drive (I've only tried this procedure with hard drives and let us know if you need more suggestions for this part).
    3. Hold the CTRL+HOME keys as you press the power button (release after it powers on) and keep holding them until you see the bios flash proceeding on the screen which I don't expect to take more than around 5 minutes.

    Unfortunately, this procedure does not seem to work for everybody, so if necessary, you may want to check the ASUS website here to see if a nearby service center can help you solve this. Locations in Costa Rica, Honduras, and Mexico are listed, so hopefully they can help if your notebook is covered under the international warranty.
    Good luck!

    +1 Good Job! The detailed steps for a "Crisis" BIOS Recovery Flash in your post should be a Sticky Thread in this forum.
