Updating bios for asus motherboard
Being a tad skeptical or afraid to update your motherboard's BIOS is perfectly natural behavior, especially since you can cause irreversible damage to your computer by missing a step or doing something wrong.However, if you're the lucky owner of an ASUS motherboard, you can stay at ease, since the developers were thoughtful enough to release a specialized software solution that can automate the process and eliminate some of the risks this operation involves. I don't know what to do anymore, I tried everything: hold the power button, take out the hdd, take out the optical drive, switch the ram, verified all the connectors to mainboard, take out the bios battery, even reflow the gpu. There is two signs around it representing "locked" and "unlocked". Just be careful when opening the machine up, removing first the tabs by the RAM under the back cover. It turns on, the lights are on, only the light from hdd stays about 1 sec on after that it turns off, cooler doesn't turn on at all and the screen is black. There is plastic screw somwhere near the RAM slots. I then replaced the HDD and immediately the Windows process started and everything was back to normal. Again, these aspects can be easily overlooked if you're into efficiency rather than looks.Although this application was designed to offer you the comfort of knowing that updating your BIOS can be simply done through an automated process that requires minimum to no intervention, there are still risks. Where it clearly says do not turn off your computer updating. I hope you got it back up without too much trouble. In my case a Windows 8.1 update was interrupted while it was being installed. All what you have to do is just test your RAM or RAM slots by removing the power then take all the RAM out then place them one at the time and switch between the RAM slots and you will figure out witch RAM or witch slot is not working and you will be back on track. It went through a restart on its own then another update and everything works normal now. It must have shut off last night during a very important update. But I believe there can be so many people around facing difficulties with same issue.
Consult your Motherboard Manual Before Making Changes Editing the system BIOS and motherboard settings improperly can result in system failure.
Basically it may weaken solder contacts and with reflow you can fix it. Hope this help someone who need some info." Sorry for my English (google translator). Only need to press the power button for a minute or more. It worked for my notebook Asus Q550L, but I suspect all about Asus UEFI boot.
Because reflow solution may work only if you have any overheating issues with GPU. To solve it have to do what he says "penplez05", but, WITHOUT DISCONNECT NOTHING.
Because I checked by disconnecting LCD connector and connected external monitor, It didn't work.

Given that this application is quite dated, its interface is not exactly eye-catching, but given the profile of the program, this can be easily overlooked, especially by users who don't put too much stress on looks and prefer efficiency.
