I successfully updated my A7J's BIOS to American Megatrends Inc ver.300 (dated 07/27/2006).

Now I can't get into the BIOS setting because my previous password has been reset. I can't boot off CD either.

Does anyone know the default password to get in?

This is SO STUPID. There is no mention or warning anywhere before, during or after BIOS updating that the master password would reset when you update the bios.

I rang technical support in Australia and they told me I have to take the notebook to a service centre to solve this problem.

The situation is completely absurd. I will never buy asus again.

Hi,

  I faced the same problem with you as well! I managed to overcome the problem by hitting (F11 or F12, can't remember) to select a temp boot device, boot to my CD, flash to an older BIOS version, clear my BIOS password before flashing to the latest BIOS again. Hope this helps!!

Sorry for bumping an old topic, but I also need my BIOS password reset on an F5GL, and cannot find an email address to write to. Could someone please supply one? Thanks,

Daniel

Actually, no they don't. Either that, or their tech support didn't know what they were talking about. I purchased a laptop 2nd hand but don' have the BIOS password. I called tech support but their master passwords do not work. I asked directly if they change daily (because my BIOS is reset so the clock is default) and he stated it wasn't. Now I'm stuck sending the laptop I use for school into them so they can change it.

Emailed to them. No reply. Are you making me angry?
