Identify An Asus G1 Motherboard

Identifying your motherboard is not difficult.

The Asus G1 laptop is designed for hardcore gamers on the go. Many of the internal components are the same in every G1, like the video card and the dual-core processor. There are several different motherboards that are used to connect the components though. If you want to update your BIOS (Basic Input Output System), or install operating-system-specific drivers, you need to know which motherboard is in the computer. Figuring it out is simple.


1. Power on your ASUS G1 gaming laptop with the power button in the upper-right-hand corner of the keyboard.

2. Look at the bottom of the post screen (splash screen) and record the string of numbers and letters listed there. It starts with a date (if you press the "Pause" button on the upper-right-hand corner of the keyboard while the post screen is on the monitor, you will have time to review it). Sometimes the motherboard part number is listed on the post screen as well.

3. Enter the BIOS string ID you recorded from the post screen into the lookup tool on This will return the manufacturer and model for the motherboard. You can also do an Internet search for the motherboard part number, if it was on the post screen.
