    Hi guys!

    I've searched in many forums for a solution on how to recover my bricked bios and none of the ones I've found worked for my asus s46cb laptop.

    Can somebody here help me? As far as I know all I need is the right bios file with the right name and power my laptop with ctrl+home pressed.

    Thanks in advance

    Tiano module compression method used
    EFI / Insyde BIOS
    Recovery filenames are:

    K46CB.bin
    K46CB.207

    Version 207 bios
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/K46CB/K46CBAS207.zip

    try older version 2.04 also
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/K46CB/K46CBAS204.zip

    put file in USB. take hdd out and sometimes cdrom too. take battery and both ram out, drain power by holding power button 35 secs.
    put ram back in and usb.
    hold Ctrl and Home keys while you plug n power and while pressing power button
    (once it turns on let go of power button).. keep holding cTRL hOME for another 20 seconds or so.

    if nothing works.. try a usb spi programmer and a SOP8 test clip to make a backup of the bad bios
    and then we download same version and compare and merge it on a hexeditor then flash back.

    good luck.
