Can't Install VBIOS update in Asus Advantage edition (G513QY)

Hello,

A new VBIOS update (Version 86018) has been released by Asus for G513QY and G713QY.
However when I click the installer nothing happens.
It seems many other users are also facing the issue.
I checked Event viewer and it shows .NET error.
Can someone report this to the Asus Tech team? Thanks !

Hello AYM576,
For your case, we would suggest you to send the device to our service center to check on the hardware and reinstall OS.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Thank you.


Thank you
everything now is OK

Can I please get some advice on VBIOS Hotfix Version 86018_9200.
Should I install it if I'm not facing any random reboot issues, or it should be installed anyway?

Let me explain the concern

Before buying this laptop I read the thread of G513QY owners complained of random reboots and this Hotfixed supposed to fix this issue, but after I bought it I didn't face any random reboot issues, so I thought that my laptop is already updated out from the box.

Checked the vbios version and here is what I see:

AMD graphics card driver: 30.0.15021.7000
VBIOS according to AMD Software: 020.002.000.019
VBIOS according to GPU-Z: 020.002.000.019.086018

So I don't know should I install this hotfix, or it's already installed?

Also, recently I saw a new BIOS v318 update is available. Can I install this update without VBIOS update, if it's required, or it can be installed separately?
