  2. windows 10 won't let me into bios

    Power down the machine, unplug it, wait 10 minutes.

    Reconnect it then boot the machine again then use the command for loading your BIOS.

    See commands for your make and model:

    You may get the best help if you can supply the model number. "Asus gaming computer" doesn't say enough about what it is.

    This operator called ASUS and they tried talking him threw updating & something went wrong and now he gets a green screen all the time.
    Told him to take it to a shop & reload W8.1 on it. I will never buy an Asus computer !! So this can be locked !!

    Bios won't let him upgrade

    The BIOS update went wrong?

    A lot of Asus motherboards have a BIOS recovery method. No guarantee that it'll work, but I suggest trying a few more things before taking it to a shop. It's in the manual. (Tee manual is available for download, if the hard copy has been lost.)

    Another alternative would be to replace the BIOS chip. Asus used to sell them directly through their estore (for $25), but they don't seem to do that any more. There are a number of eBay merchants that can provide them. (Basically, anyone with access to an eeprom burner can burn one.) The physical chip is typically an 8 pin DIP, which is simple to replace. (It may be something your friend isn't up for dealing with, though.)

    Sorry that your friend had a BIOS update go bad. I did them myself for years without any trouble. When the industry switched to UEFI instead, I bricked two motherboards (from different manufacturers) with failed updates. One of the boards was supposed to be dual BIOS, but it lacked a manual switch to use the backup BIOS, so that feature failed to work automatically.

    I'm confused. Why would he need to reload the OS, if he didn't get beyond a BIOS update?
