your model number of your ROG laptop is incorrect... it does not exist ion the rog web site support
please check and post again ( see below ROG laptop Listing does not include your G70S) I suspect incomplete number

not sure what to tell you because the international asus.com web site in service dept. does not recognize that number as valid for your laptop model. I am not trying to be a pain, but if ASUS doesn't have anything on the laptop then there are no official BIOS files to acquire to update your laptop with. ref : https://www.asus.com/search/results.aspx?SearchKey=G70S-A1&SearchType=FAQ&IsSupport=True&TopicFilter=&CateFilter=&Sort=2

what country are you in ?

NB: this laptop was built in 2008, finding support files for it will be troublesome
found a manual for it, but without a new Bios file its pointless

the only G70S link on ASUS is for a G70SG laptop.

look into this web link... G70SG laptop bios and driver page
https://www.asus.com/supportonly/G70Sg/HelpDesk_BIOS/

I have run out of options, and your sure on the underside of your laptop on the label your laptop model number is G70SA1 ?

Hi there.

First of all, I am Portuguese.
Second, This is the information on the sticker:

Model: G70S
MB Ver. : G70S ID: 1A
88N0AG01299135A
G70S-7T028J
Check Number: 0192
Warranty: 24M <GA>
Too bad the warranty is over now,

I do have the Bios file. It was provided by ASUS tech support.

The problem is that i can't find the bios chip location. I have the laptop itself all disassembled on my bench work.

Thanks

wait what ? why did you disassemble the laptop to update your bios ? its just a program the updates file updates the information inside the chip you don't actually replace the chip, because its welded on the motherboard.,

Ok let me explain this in detail:

I have followed the procedure given by in order to update the bios.
USB thumb drive fat 32 formatted and the bios file on the root.
after that i have rebooted the laptop and entered on the Bios setup, accessing the EZ flasher
I have pointed to the bios file and the whole process started by erasing, flashing and verification.
The problem started at verification. It showed "verification error" for about 4 or 5 times. It rebooted itself and it "died". Since i do have a bios programming machine, i am trying to find the chip itself, in order to programm it again. That is why it is unassembled.

you have an EEPROM programmer sure, I understand, radical way of doing something, but not sure your BIOS chip is an EEPROM.
well I don't have the service manual so I cannot point out the bios chip on the motherboard. sorry and good luck
