You need this file: USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guideTo copy VGA bios:
Open folder "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide"
Open folder "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" See SP27213.exe
Instal to your PC. It will instal itself in a folder called "USBDriveFormatTool". Open it.
Have a flash drive plugged in ready to use. Click on HPUSBFW.EXE
Choose "Create a DOS startup disk" using files found by browsing to your "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide" folder. Select "USB image w7" and Start. This takes ages.
Copy "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide/nvflash" folder contents to the usb
Restart and in motherboard bios make the usb drive the first in your boot order list.
It will say Windows Millenium and below that c: prompt
Type c:nvflash -b backup.rom
That makes a copy of yr vga rom.To install bios:
Enter bios. Set to start on USB.
Just type nvflash (biosname).rom and if there is protection that stops you then try again with nvflash -4 -5 -6 (biosname).rom
Nvflash will recognise the bioses one at a time and ask for a y for yes prompt to continue.
When all bios are flashed, restart, enter bios, reset boot order to HDD first, save and reboot.
