Item(s) for Sale:

Aorus x7

Intel Core i7 4870HQ

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M SLI

7.3 inch 16:9, 1920x1080 pixel

Item(s) Description/Condition: I purchased this Aorus X7 gaming laptop almost a year ago, everything has been fine. About a month ago, my windows crashed, when I rebooted Im recieving an error referring to the boot manager, error 0xc000000f (not looking at computer, code may not be totally correct).

When I try to go into bios to change boot order so I can repair windows, or do a fresh install. It ask for a password. Never asked for a password before, nor have I set one. I actually was in the bios in Jan, no password was asked for.

After much research, Im thinking the bios chip is corrupted and needs to be replaced. Hopefully not, since it appears its not easy, and no one in my area can handle it for a reasonable price.

If there are any suggestions, I would gladly try them out.

**Also this Aorus X7 is made by Gigabyte, which has a dual bios setup, password is saved to eeprom. removing the rtc battery does nothing, tried it already.

Not sure what condition to rate it, Im sure the Windows issue is an easy fix, not so sure about bios/bios password. 7/10

When it was working, it's a beast of a machine! (Retails for $2000+)

Only includes Aorus x7 laptop, no charger (being used with new laptop)

Price: $300 OBO (will also trade for nice 4 channel amp, or dsp)

Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:

Shipping options are left to buyer

There's a few things you can try. You need to isolate the problem. From this point, and forward, only look at the screen on your laptop. If you're using an external display of any kind, it may not come on until later in the startup process. You need to see everything that's going on.

Log into windows and do a shut down while pressing the shift key. Wait a few seconds, then push the power button and see what happens. If Windows goes into protection mode an wants to try and fix any problems, let it. It may take a while, so give it a chance. Also, Windows may keep restarting.

I've pm'd you on topic of fixing it, but I'd rather sale at this point. Long story short, I've tried everything short of taking it to a repair shop. lol
