    Is there an official source for BIOS 204 for G74SX?

    In a thread I saw a reference to someone that got an email from a now ex-employee that had that BIOS version as an attachment. I have found a file claiming to be that BIOS version available for download, but not from an ASUS site, so I will not trust it. Is there a newer BIOS for the G74 than 204?

    Hi Asus Guy,
    The answer to your question is no!
    On the Asus support page for the G74SX, the BIOS V202, an V203 is only supported.
    Any other version, like V204 is not supported from Asus, most likely from a third party. (not Asus)

    Good luck, and good gaming!

    I installed the one from the user in question and it works quite well. Things are running faster, and I seem to be having fewer USB issues for some reason.
