Updating bios using asus ez flash 2 dating and the city type sites
I don't know what to do anymore, I tried everything: hold the power button, take out the hdd, take out the optical drive, switch the ram, verified all the connectors to mainboard, take out the bios battery, even reflow the gpu. There is two signs around it representing "locked" and "unlocked". Just be careful when opening the machine up, removing first the tabs by the RAM under the back cover. It turns on, the lights are on, only the light from hdd stays about 1 sec on after that it turns off, cooler doesn't turn on at all and the screen is black. There is plastic screw somwhere near the RAM slots. I then replaced the HDD and immediately the Windows process started and everything was back to normal. I think that is part of the setup utility Express Gate. Tried to flash the original bios and get a message saying "board is older than currently installed". Now all I get is a message: " missing bootmgr press ctrl-alt-del to restart.The following guide will help ISO Images with Img Burn Done that, start the affected computer from the repair disc and use the above steps (A & B)Thanks Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem.After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
I am having similar problem with my ASUS laptop A43SD after flashing to new bios version 208 using the EZ flash ultility in the CMOS. after taking the DC power supply out and unplugging the AC power supply ; hold main power button down for 2 minutes. and then pushing power button again like a nornal turning on process and it worked out!
Quick post here, as there is a quick solution for most people having the error “ROM file is not an EFI BIOS”. Even though I had double checked that I had downloaded the correct BIOS update from their support website, I received this error when I tried from my USB as well as my hard drive. The device being read from to get the ROM file must be formatted as FAT32, not NTFS.
While you can navigate file and see the file within the EFI BIOS, the underlying EZ-Flash program is separate and only reads FAT32 (and possible FAT).
You can update the BIOS of your ASUS computer if you want your computer to support new CPU and a larger memory, or if you want to fix any ongoing bugs and known issues.
The BIOS on your ASUS can be updated at any time using the Easy Flash utility, and does not require the use of any additional software.
Basically it may weaken solder contacts and with reflow you can fix it. Hope this help someone who need some info." Sorry for my English (google translator). Only need to press the power button for a minute or more. It worked for my notebook Asus Q550L, but I suspect all about Asus UEFI boot.
