    Hi guys,
    I am in a bit of problem here. I have a ASUS laptop (details below), which had an outdated bios so I tried to update it within windows using the Asus Winflash utility (I heard it rewrites boot block but I am not sure) Things did not go well, the bios was erased and was rewritten, but the program failed to verify the bios image and said that it did not match. A restart later, my laptop was bricked. When I turn it on, the led lights come on for half a second then the computer shuts itself off immediately.o_O


    System :

    • Asus K55A - R500A
    • Bios is from American Megatrends inc. Aptio, I think
    • i7 3610qm
    • 8 gb DDR3
    • NOT under warranty


    Symptoms:
    When I turn it on, the led lights come on for half a second then the computer shuts itself off immediately.:confused:


    What I have tried so far:
    - get a bios rom from the asus website
    - rename it to amiboot.rom
    - put it in a 4gb fat32 formatted USB stick
    - stick it in the system and press Ctrl + home


    Results : nothing worked, the USB drive doesn't even light up. Please help me . I can't afford another one right now. Thanks in advance:(

    Do I just rename the file? As I said, the led lights come on, but except for that there is no sign of life. The power, caps lock, and WLAN light comes up quickly and then turn off, in a cycle
