    Don't see no difference at all. Is there any changelog. BTW, after the flash, the laptop could not power up the first time. The 3 LEDs kept flashing, like the motherboard is struggling to start. Maybe it's just a mote thorough POST check, because it restarted automatically and all was well.

    I like it that ASUS is posting stuff on Megaupload, because that seems like we are made lab rats to test their new releases before they go gold.

    Mm, I posted it on megaupload as the BIOS was attached to the email they sent me.

    I tried to upload the BIOS to the forum directly, but the zip was too large.

    They just sent me an email with an updated bios with a date of 3/19/2010

    It's a BETA bios i dunno if i want to flash it right now

    the file size is bigger then the 205 update

    Dear Valued Asus Customer,



    We have a BETA BIOS released to us by our engineering team over the weekend, it is being provided for you as is. We have done limited testing and understand that our end users will have varying degrees of configuration and setup.



    If you experience any issues using this BIOS please forward your minidump right away. Thank you.

    the file name is G60JXAS.T53

    Hi guys, I just bought this Asus G51J with
    System Model: G60JX
    BIOS: BIOS Date: 06/15/09 18:50:05 Ver: 08.00.10
    (from dxdiag)

    Do you think the BIOS version that uploaded here will be working fine for me?
    Because last time I update the BIOS using G60JAS, after finished, I can't start the laptop at all, then had to bring it to Asus service center.. =(

    The G51J has it's own BIOS. I believe the newest is 208. Check the G51J BSOD thread or ASUS support website for that.
