Detailed description:

I noticed lately that if I boot my laptop after a Shutdown on the previous day it just gets stuck on Manufacturer's Boot screen; In my case I have ASUS ZenBook and my device does not go any where else other than being freeze in the Screen where it shows Manufacturer's Logo; This happened at randomly but not frequently. To overcome this, I have to forcefully shutdown the device by holding on to the Power button for few seconds and switching back it again. I have noticed on the 2nd try it boots, but I see a loading circle unlike in my first attempt before I was able to see the username and password screen.

Steps I taken recently were, Upgrading to BIOS 302. I felt after this installation, this issue happened quite regularly. I even noticed after the BIOS upgrade, the system shuts it down if the device is left on Sleep for a substantial time.

    Thank You @Blake_ASUS. I have updated to BIOS version 303. Let me review it and respond with you the outcomes

  • I have exactly the same issue. I have even tried reinstalling windows. This appears to fix it for a while and then the problem starts up again.

  • Hello @graham.betts ,

    Have you followed the above FAQ ?

    Thank you.

    Hi @Blake_ASUS and @graham.betts

    After reviewing for a period, I have not come across the issue again. This issue is not related to Windows and no need to revert to Windows 1909. This issue is due to BIOS. Anybody having the issue just update your BIOS; Infact, BIOS version 302 did not work at all, but precisely install version 303 and voila!

    I have updated my Windows to 2004 and works like a charm. Infact, I installed the BIOS version 302 and 303 while being in Windows 2004.
