ASUS X75A1 Stuck in BIOS after updating BIOS
I am trying to get a friends laptop back to working order. Not too old of a laptop, probably manufactured roughly 2012 and came with Win 8 and was downgraded to Win 7 (can you blame them?) since then the laptops mouse pad has stopped working, in device manager it would have a yellow explanation mark next to the device, ASUS Touch Pad. Assuming this means it is connected but something is wrong. Most likely compatibility issue. So they had ran a BIOS update* through the BIOS menu upon startup through the BIOS's Easy Flash. Not quite sure if it matters or not where the updated file comes from or being loaded from, but it was updated to the latest BIOS version through a flash drive. After doing so it keeps going back to BIOS after saving and exiting. I see no boot options other through through the flash drive but only when it is plugged in. When the flash drive is plugged in it gives the option to boot through the flash drive but unfortunately thats it. It also give the option to create a boot option. From what I have tried, it does not load anything from the hard drive, which was working before hand and works on other computers (tested it on my pc). So the main question is, what can I do to fix this. I tried loading the same BIOS update through the hard drive, that I downloaded onto from my computer, and it only says that it is too old of an update. I cannot revert to default setup either, it just stays the same. Thanks in advance for any information!
*BIOS update from 403 to 412 from this website: https://www.asus.com/support/Download/3/...
Is this a good question?
