asus F556-UA54, possibly bricked
#41
Get USB ready with FPT, go into walmart, find same model, dump it's BIOS = Win Big Grin

Great it's back and running now, see I told you it wasn't too hard to revive it! Big Grin

I assumed wireless would be working, since it's info is all stored on the wireless card itself. Check windows activations, see if it remains after checking for windows updates and rebooting a few times. If so, then not super critical to get your info back into exact location, but I would like to, so hopefully once I can grab that other dump I'll be able to eventually.

Great, so your serial and UUID etc may not be too important after all, at least not for windows activation it's not (usually only important for that or RMA's). I do have your info though, and can put it back in there for you once I am 100% sure of correct placement location for this system.

for now, I'm going to keep the bottom of my laptop off so once you're good with a final bios, then I'll flash it onto the chip.

I'd put it on there, just don't [censored] it all down, maybe two opposite corners or something like that.

I have it laying on it...I'll continue to use my wife's laptop at work for the next few days until you give me the go on the final bios flash. no big deal.

Ha! I forgot we can't "turn a bolt to secure something" here ^^^

I should be able to grab the other BIOS from that place tonight, will update once I've checked it out again

* Edit - got tonight's dump from them, and it's not a dump Sad Stock BIOS programmed in, then dumped, so not actual dump
Have to wait till tomorrow now and see if UAM matches UAK for this stuff, if it does them I'll assume your UA should be same/same and will build BIOS from that info for you.

Same rubbish with UAM "dump" from that site, not actual dumped BIOS Sad
So, I only got one actual dump for these systems from that site, and it's only one I can find that's not a paid only site (and the paid ones probably only have copies of these same files anyway) Sad

Will have to move forward and test based on what I see in the UAK dump for system info locations/layout etc.

I just realized, you were originally using BIOS 402 from 2016, and I sent you rebuild to get you running with 411 from 2019 Big Grin
Do you want to be on 402 or 411?

411 is fine, I believe that's what windows pushed out that caused me to brick my system.

OK, that's what you're using now anyway Big Grin

Here, program this in, and then check in BIOS and in windows system info or HWINFO etc and see if serial UUID etc now shows up properly
After this, you can put system back together, if any other BIOS flashes are needed we can do with FPT as this has unlocked FD
