I've updated the BIOS to 222 (got 210 before) and now it often checks if there's a CD inserted (scratching sounds from BluRay drive) when any new device is attached to the system and on cold boot.

But worse it that the keyboard often doesn't work after a cold boot.

In 210 : cold boot -> keyboard light stays on until i logged into Windows account then the keyboard light goes to the last setting (on/off/dimmed)

In 222 : cole boot -> keyboard light just flashes short and then goes off and on Windows login sometimes i can use the keyboard and sometimes it didn't work (no keypress works) -> only solution is reboot and try again until the keyboard accepts any key press again.

Anything else seems still working fine - so be carefull with this BIOS (i got G75V)

The light hasn't been a problem - it just shows up a bit different behaviour like before while the machine is booting.

The problem has been the keyboard which sometimes works and sometimes not (after booting up to the windows login screen) which didn't happen before.

try this (be careful; make sure your battery is working and the machine is plugged in to an external power source):

1. rename the bios that you wanna use to c:\G75VW.BIN (this is for g75vw machines);
2. shutdown your laptop;
3. press and hold left ctrl key and home key simutaneously, and turn the laptop on;
4. continue to hold the ctrl+home keys until you see the ezflash screen.

Hello,

I had some issues with the USB ports, thinking the problem is the mouse changed few mouses the problem was still there.
From the official link http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G75VW/#download I have downloaded the BIOS update 222 and the Windows BIOS Flash Utility V2.41.1 .

Launched the Windows BIOS Flash Utility, chose the BIOS 222 update file, and followed the instructions. Everything was successful, at the end it asked to restart. I did restarted.

After boot it showed me there is no OS installed, this was normal I believe because I had my 2 hard-disks in RAID0 mode and I believe after the BIOS update it cleared out the settings. So I restarted again and entered the BIOS, the new BIOS version was visible in the main tab. I have changed changed my HDDs back to RAID0 mode then went to save and exit option.

After step my laptop when it tries to boot it doesn't do much. The screen is black completely it does not light up for any second. The backlight from the keyboard is on for 2 seconds when I press the power button then it turns off. This I all I can get out my laptop after this update.

What are my options ?
I saw on forums people have the exact same problem:

Same problem. I'd like to see someone from ASUS chime in here. I'm seeing more and more people here saying that they're left with a laptop showing a blank screen. In my case I was on 222 for a couple days with no problem. I switched my boot order, saved and exited, and am now left with a blank screen when the computer boots. There are multiple posts on the first page with others saying the same with no solution.

It would be interesting to see if those experiencing problems after flashing BIOS version 222 used

A) Winflash in Windows

vs. the

B) EasyFlash utility in the BIOS and uncompress the BIOS file directly to the root of a USB flash drive formatted to a single FAT32 partition.

Flashing the BIOS using this EasyFlash method with the BIOS update file on a FAT32 flash drive should have greater odds of success.

I agree!!!

I use method "B" and have no problems!!
I still on Version 210, and still running Win7.

Like I said before, "Why update, just for the sake of updating?".
If your PC was perfectly running okay, why risk it?
I hold off on flashing the BIOS, I wait to see if problem like this 'POP UP".


PS: Sorry to hear about all thees problems.
