I have an Asus S400CA laptop and today, I upgraded the BIOS firmware from version 203 to 209 using the Asus Windows flash utility. Flashing was successful and even the verification was OK. So, I restarted the system and ... just a black screen shows up.
I am D/Ling the latest bios (v3401) from asus.com, unzipping and burning it to DVD-R (what a waste :( I wish I had a USB key :/), loading up EZ Bios 2 from the Bios and when I pick my BIN file it tells me it can't read it! any ideas as to what I must do now? Any more fool-proof windows based method I'd love that rather than having to waste these DVDs :( it's so not green.
I have been trying to upgrade the BIOS for my HP Envy laptop last weeks and I am not advancing. The task and concepts are too difficult for me and I have a hard time understanding articles related to this. I tried installing Freedos with VirtualBox, but then I read that for the bios upgrade it was a wrong approach to start with.
