Ok i have a slight problem, i get a red screen right after windows loads up when i am in the regular BIOS.

I switched to the LN2 bios and everything works perfectly. Do i have a bad regular bios? Can that be fixed by flashing ?

EDIT: I dont think it was the drivers because everything is working fine on the ln2 bios.

Using drivers 306.97 and was surprised to see that my ln2 bios is 80.04.09.00.f8

LN2 bios works like a charm but this is what i get when im switched to the regular BIOS.

For me red screen was usually too much voltage or not enough cooling. Is it booting in with an overclock (afterburner applying OC on startup checked)?
I did have this issue with a z77 gd80 motherboard, the F8 bios would boot up & blackscreen or redscreen right after the windows loading logo. 3A bios worked fine in that board though.

I'm not a gamer so can't really say for sure, most people with higher resolution go for the higher vram cards (680L 2Gb, 7970 3Gb). I still like my 680 lightnings but it's hard to beat 7970 performance.

No MSI isnt even set to start up with windows and that option is not checked either.

Hmmm it is booting up and the fans are blaring , but after windows loading logo like you said it goes straight to that red screen. Can i flash the regular bios to fix it ? What should i do ? I am at a loss, but happy the LN2 bios is working fine.

I just used the 3a ln2 bios, didn't really look for an F8 fix. I got rid of the normal bios, my cards have both 3A & F8 flashed into the 2 bios'. Wanted to be prepared for benching.

Well how do i go about flashing the normal BIOS anyway seeing as i cant even boot into windows with that bios ?

Now with the latest beta drivers i am no longer getting that dramatic red screen when trying to use bios1, the screen is just staying black.
