I have a new ASUS Q302 running inflexible and slow Windows 10, in which I am very disappointed. However my question; is it possible to replace the crappy AMD BIOS with an Award BIOS and if so how do I go about changing it.

Whats slow ?

In reply to: BIOS

Booting up or internet speed or what ?
I have 3 comps running Win 10 and all 3 are fast at everything.
Maybe look into your startup programs and find out whats running that isn't needed.

Unsure why.

I've never found the BIOS to make any difference in speed. Why? As Windows boots, most of the BIOS calls are never called again. There are long old discussions on that so I'll stop here.

There are ways to really drag the speed down. What's not stock? That is, if I was to do a factory reset, what would you add to get it back to now?

Tell more about this infliexible 10. It seems just as flexible as Windows 95 to Windows 8 was.
