on 25-05-2019 , my laptop is updated new bios firmware v307, this firmware includes intel microcode 8E , which solves spectre and meltdown vulnerabities. Together with users must enable migitations in registry keys.

The above bios fuimware is not available in asus official website. But you can update system firmware under device manager.
before downloading updating close running apps , disable antiviruses and firewalls too. connect power adapter ac to computer.

once successfully update , go to bios do reset default settings , shutdown
boot and modify settings in bios, save and exit.. Boot the windows and normal

i would recommend you to reset the BIOS after every major upgrade of bios.

or downgrade to previous bios version ,if you experience a boot issues

or get new latest bios from device manager
