AW17 r4 and alike

So I posted on here about a week ago regarding my aw17 r4. Well it bricked during a bios flash about 7 days ago and it’s 3 months out of warranty. So I jumped on eBay and found a 1070 mobo for 800$ ouch not as bad as the 1400$ new one haha mine was used. The reason for creating this thread is that there’s not a lot of info on the pc. Well I tried everything under the sun I don’t know how many button combos and cmos drains and resets and even a usb flash. All are a nooo go! So I replaced the mobo today!!! Fired it up and selected my SSD from the bios and bam!!! Even the fx lighting was set the way it was!! I hope this helps someone who has this problem! The only thing I didn’t try was an external flash but I don’t even know where the bios chip is!

well that's a hell of a story, sad it bricked up on a bios update, and glad it worked with a new mobo xD

Thank you!! Yeah I knew of the bios problem it happened to my 15 r3 but I just clicked shutdown and it started the flash and locked up.
