BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS
Disassemble your Ally(remove the back cover),
Disconnect the battery connector from the battery to the motherboard,
With the battery disconnected wait for it to discharge the flash/CMOS(wait at least 120 seconds),
Plug the battery back in, close the shell all the way (so the light sensor isn’t tripped),
Reinstall all screws to prevent any weirdness with the battery detection system.
Plug in the OEM charger, press and hold the power button, and release once the screen is on.
Once on the Republic Of Gamers screen you must wait around 180 seconds for it to boot to bios.
Reset Bios to factory defaults and save and exit.
