Bricked ASUS G73

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I got my ASUS G73JH REFURBISHED from newegg, about 5 Months ago and it is totally out of warranty, I applied a BIOS update from the ASUS website to try to fix some fan profiling issues and it managed to completely brick my system. I am completely out of warranty and I don't know what to do I currently have a ticket open with them but I don't see much happening...

Any advice?

Ouch, usually these BIOS bricks require changing out the EEPROM on the mainboard containing the BIOS.

Other words. Your best chances are sending it to ASUS to repair it and you to pay for it.

Pull the battery.
Unplug from the wall.
Hold power button for 20 seconds.
Reboot.

This will reset the BIOS to factory settings.

Yup or unless you can find a local PC guy that can do it. Bios chips need to go the way of the dinosaurs. Come on mobo companies. Think of something better.

Heres a question.
Why would you buy a G Series to begin with? Those things are riddled with problems brand new, A refurbished one inspires even less confidence...

Also, you may be able to restore the BIOS in the manner Smasher mentioned. Its worked for me in the past but im not sure it still works.

Call ASUS and see how much they will charge you to repair and ship it.
Thats pretty much your only option now.
