The Safer Method to Flash a System BIOS

1. Format a USB drive to FAT32 format.
2. Download the new BIOS and unzip it to the USB drive.
3. Remove USB drive after you're certain the file transfer is complete.
4. Restart your notebook and while the ASUS logo is on the screen press F2 or del a few times to enter the BIOS setup.
5. Find the Easy Flash Utility and insert the USB drive. Tell Easy flash where your BIOS file is then follow directions explicitely!!!
6. When your notebook restarts, enter the BIOS Setup utility again and select "Load Optimized Defaults" (I think it's f9 )
7. Save and Exit, then continue into Windows.

I see there are new chipset drivers. Do I need to uninstall my other drivers (video, audio, etc.) and start over? Or can I just install the new chipset drivers over the old ones?

This doesn't affect your other drivers. And you can just install the chipset over the top of the old one. (This isn't the case with all drivers, but it does apply to the Intel chipset.)

WARNING!!!! The latest chipset drivers messed with my clock settings on my ASUS G73JH which lead to low performance. The clocks would always linger around ~1800 instead of going from 937-2.8ghz. IDK if it is just me that is effected, but I highly recommend staying with the

9.2.0.1030 driver set which can be found here : http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20019&ProdId=3172〈=eng&OSVersion=Wind...

Thanks for the heads up. This is why I almost always wait to update key drivers........
