G710 failed BIOS update

2016-10-24, 18:01 PM

Yesterday I tried to update the BIOS on my G710 as had been recommended to me, and the update froze halfway. From what I understand, the motherboard is likely bricked, but there should be a way to recover the BIOS. Can anyone help guide me with this?

 

The BIOS is, I think, InsydeH20. What steps should I take from here? I have borrowed a working laptop and I have a flash drive to hand.

 

Attached is a photo of the stalled update screen. Any help is much appreciated.

Update: I have downloaded the BIOS file onto a seperate laptop and found the correct recovery name to give the file. My issue now is that the recovery name that is suggested has the file extension '.f?', which Windows will not allow. Can anyone help? Is the question mark necessary or shall I just proceed to load it onto a flash drive without?
