========================

Detailed description:I bought an UX430UA-DH74. I have had some wake up from sleep issues and battery overcharging - gets real hot. In most of the "check first" helps is check for latest BIOS. I have a "308" version that should be in an UX430UAR. I should have a "307" since I have an UX430UA. Bios 307 will not load. How can I determine the right BIOS?

Comments

  • use system information.

    or

    type

    dxdiag.exe in command prompt

  • Thaks for the reply. I did and it seems to inform me I have an UX430UAR with it's appropriate BIOS - 308. I think that the BIOS hijacks any inquiries. Maybe ASUS will tell me what I should expect if I gave them my laptops serial number - have not tried that yet - I'm out of warranty. The tag on the bottom indicates UX430U. I bought a UX430UA-DH74. All works well with this BIOS except for sleep and battery overheating while in sleep. So far my fix is never let it sleep -- always turn off.
