    I presume the lack of replies means the T100 is now a bit long in the tooth and everyones moved on to other things now

    I am still using my T100TA myself, but it's too giving me a few problems (made no better by the fact I run Linux on it), including some of the ones you mentioned, but not this particular one.

    However... just an idea... I don't remember what it was exactly, I have trouble focusing, but there was *some kind* of Intel "security" (or rather, user-disabling) technology whereby a coprocessor would perform a sanity check on something that was running on the main CPU, and if it didn't pass, it would shut the computer down. This wouldn't happen immediately, but after a preset timeout. I know I'm being very vague, I don't even remember which Intel chips this applied to, but shutting down after an exact amount of time does sound like a self-check triggering. I will try to be more specific if I can recall the thing I'm thinking of, with the help of some googling.

    Good to know some are still running the old T100's

    The whole 30min shut down even in the BIOS screen is really wide spread it seems. I've not seen anything yet that describes your Intel sanity check but it seems reasonable, I did find someone mentioning that some systems do a run round check (within the BIOS) on system temps every 30mins, I'm not talking about CPU temps but on other items and if it finds an issue it pulls the plug on the whole thing. Thats the trouble so many items can report temps, only takes one of these sensors to go down and it could be that ??

    I've discovered something new with mine now.

    While in the BIOS, if I hit F9 to load Optimized Defaults and then hit F10 to save and exit nothing happens but the BIOS clock stops and it just sits there, the BIOS seems to freeze and you cannot get out of it with doing a hard shut down by holding the power button down the only way. While the BIOS appears frozen like this with the clock not counting the system STILL shuts off after 30mins ????

    It just gets weirder and weirder, so is the BIOS still running underneath what appears like a frozen screen, or is there something else ticking away ?

    EDIT:- right so while the BIOS screen seems frozen it cant be because when I powered it back straight in to the BIOS screen without booting to the OS the time was still correct and not 30mins out as I was possibly thinking it might be as the clock had stopped

    FYI I bought mine when they were first released and it's fine, no issues. It's been on win 10 since it was released.

    Re: your problem is it a true shutdown or a crash?
    Have you looked at the log to see if you pin down what is happening if it is crashing?

    Is there a log for the BIOS ??

    You can see in the video that it does it even in the BIOS screen so I cannot see that a Windows log would help ?

    I'm willing to accept it might but cant see how the OS can help ??

    It's likely a BIOS problem, 30 min is more than enough time to flash an updated one.
    It takes less than 5 minutes if you have all files ready to go.
    TA & TAS are mixed together. Asus never provides change logs.
    https://www.asus.com/support/Download/3/580/0/1/40/
    In order of update by date:
    BIOS 207 (T100TAS); 2014/06/18
    BIOS 213 (T100TAS); 2015/03/05
    BIOS 214 (T100TAS); 2015/10/21

    Since you are still on Win8.1, look for Windows BIOS Flash Utility WinFlash_Win81_32_VER2420.zip

    Cheers RS

    I've sorted the Winflash my only thing was that why hasnt the Asus live updated the dam thing for me ? I was under the impression the that would do it for me, but might not do it straight away ? well its been years and even today if I run it up it says everything is in up todate.

    I've always been very wary of flashing BIOS's as I've had a fair few brick moments and while this 30min shut down is a pain I do still have a working machine rather than a doorstop.

    Sorry to say, forget about that 30 min problem. There's no fix. It seems it's some kind of defect. I finally purchased an used T100TA motherboard from eBay for about USD 65.- That's all you can do. Obviously assuming that you could manage to do the motherboard swap.

    Cheers!

    1. The only thing Live Update updates is Live Update.
    2. I wouldn't call it a working machine. If I had a car that shut down every 30 minutes, I'd sell it for parts.

    Yes no log for BIOS but the windows log might give you a clue to what is causing the crash. More then likely a hardware issue then software.
