    Does BIOS flash with Asus Flash Utility void my warranty?

    Hi guys,
    I flashed my bios with the asus utility, but something went wrong and now I've a bricked device, without any possibility to boot it up. It's dead. The only thing happening is the upper led that flashes when I press it and then dies. I started an RMA without mentioning my flash. Do you think they will replace my mobo without further investigating or is there any way to find out I flashed it?
    Does flashing an official Bios surely void my warranty?
    I'd like to know some experiences and opinions about it

    I'd say you have nothing to worry about. You updated your Asus T100 using the supplied Asus utility & now it doesn't work.

    I recommend a call to Asus support - they will likely take you through some procedures to try to rectify the situation without needing to return your device, but if that doesn't work I cannot see any reason why they would not issue a RMA for you to be able to return your device & have it repaired under warranty.

    All the best

    Have you tried holding volume down and power button simultaneously to see if you can get into UEFI to reset Windows OS?

    Yes, I tried everything. Even flashing with a USB drive with the bios put in. Nothing happens.

    If there are Asus folks that visit this forum. They stay well hidden. I really wish they would visit and respond in this forum. I believe this is the best forum for the Asus T100 in the world (wide web). Asus... are you out there? Heck... they respond to negative reviews and commentary at Walmart/dot/com and so far, with very few exceptions people that come here want to have a full or better experience with their T100 and not just bash the brand or model.

    We have had some official Asus representation from time to time, but they seem to have vanished from the forum...
