    Hi first time posting.
    I bricked my g74sx, and I'm unable to claim warranty as apparently it's a US model with no local warranty here in Australia.
    I tried the method described by sir robin, but to no success, I think my BIOS is too screwed up...
    Its too expensive for me to buy a new motherboard (only a uni student) so would anyone be kind enough to please share a reconstructed BIOS, would be much appreciated!
    Email is ch12011-7@yahoo.com.au

    Thank you kind sirs!
    Regards, nabs

    I already done it for me, it was complicated, i was one week reading over and over again the Sir Robin's guide, because Im not a programmer, and i don't know too much about Hex Editor or something, but I could repair my Original code and my G74SX is back to life now!

    of course, i will be glad to help all people who needs this file, It was very complicated for me and took me one entire week without sleep to get this done, and I have read many cases of this problem, so is great when you see your notebook waking up, and is better if you can help others to feel the same happiness, the thing is I dont know how to upload a file here, and I dont know how to send a private message, everything is blocked and i have no privileges, send me your email and i will send the file to you :)

    Yes, i have already done it 3 times,
    first time i got burned, coz i was looking for cheapest variation, and paid 190$ for mobo that had only 2 RAM slots.
    second time i got a normal one, but without working backlit, and BIOS version 212 ? for 210$ (updated later and fixed backlit)
    third time i got fully working one, with all features and no problems found yet for 130$.

    All 3 are still running =)

    EDIT:
    all prices have DHL Express included in the cost.
    And BTW all G73JH motherboards are made in china XD
