PCNetSpec sure, my BIOS version is 2.16.1243 , and it is showing at the bottom of my screen.

I should probably mention this a Japanese model of the X205TA - not sure if that would matter though,  it's basically the same laptop with a Japanese keyboard. :-\

On this one there's nothing listed at the bottom right of screen on this BIOS page:-


But further up the page it states

Version:  208  (where the pic above states 204)

Can you say what yours says for:-

BIOS Vendor:
Version:
GOP Version:
EC Version:


please ?

Can you also confirm it's a X205TA and not an X205TAW ?
(I'm pretty sure the fact it's Japanese wouldn't make a difference .. I'm assuming the BIOS is in English ?)

As this one doesn't show a number bottom right (as indicated by the red writing in the pic above), I'm now seriously thinking the BIOS has somehow become corrupt .. though quite how a win10 upgrade was able to corrupt the BIOS I can't fathom.

Sorry about that sent you the wrong version info.  :-[
And I also have nothing in my lower right corner as well.
Mine is an older version: 200

Outstanding, cheers grafiksinc :)

If she decides she wants to risk a BIOS flash, I may just DOWNgrade it instead.

Same mindset as promising mail-in rebates, and never fulfilling them. They're a bunch of ass-wipes IMO.

It's amazing how petty and vindictive ppl can be. I'll never buy another ASUS anything.  F* ASUS.

As an adjunct...

Three days after I posted the above, ASSUS informed me that the rebate was on the way - 7 months after being submitted/approved.

I received it in the mail yesterday. Pretty amazing coincidence, eh what?  ::)

Carry on...

LOL, better late than never .. but the real question is - has it changed your opinion of them ?

[EDIT]

I have a felling my next posting is gonna say "yeah, I figured as much" :)

If I knew where they lived, I'd send a couple of guys over to talk to 'em...  8)
