  1. On the few motherboards I've had that allowed this it was always an option in the BIOS, to use a custom flash screen or the default. When I changed it to something custom, I just followed the instructions from the manufacturers website.

    I would pull up the manual for your motherboard, it should have specific instructions on how to do this.

  3. You can only do that if it has an alternate bios as shown on your motherboard webpage - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_990FXGEN3_R20/HelpDesk_Download/

    which it does not.

    Can you post a picture of the Logo you'd like to change?
    You can use MyLogo in AiSUite.
    Take care that MyLogo2 supports 256-color images, 640x480 resolution.

  9. Use Paint or similar for transforming the picture you'd like to use in a 256 bit 640x480 one, otherwise it would not work.
    Then check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWnFVvv_dzM or similar

    Ok, it asks me for a picture file and a BIOS file what is the BIOS file
    Reply to poppadom
  11. Download the BIOS file from http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_990FX_R20/HelpDesk_Download/
    Either the version you're running or a newer one (not an older). Unzip it and save it on Desktop (for example), together with the picture.

  13. Check in BIOS or run CPU-Z.

    Where it says BIOS version

  16. Hi Poppadom,

    Did you get to sort this out?, I have the exact same issue as my splash screen is "PC Specialists" and I need it to be the default windows start up splash screen.

    Any help on how you did it and the software used along with ant instructions would be great, that's if you got it solved.

    Thanks

    Andy

    this is what it looks like, then boots straight into the desktop without any text or images.

  23. I suggest leaving it as it is instead of modding the BIOS and possibly bricking the laptop.

  24. Sorry for the late answer but it worked. I used the Asus ai suite to change the picture it was very simple, it's in one of the options.

    Sure thing:

    I'm just trying to get MyLogo to work.
    It comes with the software suite, so I'll assume it's supported.
    I tried chat first, but the tech just told me to reinstall the software. I did that, and it still doesn't work.
    Looking around the forums, I've found that the image for the logo should be 16-bit, 640x480 and less than 150kB in size.
    All of this is correct.

    When I run the app via the AI Suite 3, the preview looks like the logo works.
    Steps done:

    - Open AI Suite 3
    - Open EZ Update
    - Click on three dots button to pick a BIOS file
    - Choose file RAMPAGE-V-EXTREME-ASUS-3701 from my pen drive
    - Click "MyLogo"
    - Click on three dots button to pick an image file
    - Choose my .jpg file <- (also tried this with a PNG and BMP files, all under 150k and 640x480)
    - Click "Update" button
    - On screen "BIOS update may take 3-5 minutes", click "Flash"
    - Popup shows, "Update BIOS to 3701." Click OK
    - New popup shows, "The system requires a restart for the BIOS to take effect. Click OK to restart instantly."
    I think the problem is here, because as soon as I click Flash, it fills up the progress bar immediately and it doesn't run for the estimated 3-5 minutes.
    Also, the new file is the same date as the unmodified downloaded file, so I don't think it's being updated with the new logo.
    - Click OK, system shuts down instead of restarting
    - Power up machine again
    - Hit DEL to go into BIOS
    - Flash the new file via "TOOL"
    - System reboots
    - Asks to go into BIOS via F1 as if it's the first time turning it on
    - Nothing changed. ROG logo still there.

    I'm sure I'm either doing something wrong, or there's an issue with the software. HELP!!!
    Thanks in advance.

  28. Theoretically, it should work. What is the board's current BIOS version?
    Reply to alexoiu
  29. 3701.

  30. Have you tried using Paint and saving the picture as 256 color bmp?
