NvAPI_EnumPhysicalGPUs failed
then I get
Firestorm will not work properly
It will not let me install my stock bios mad.gif I uninstalled the drivers and reinstall drivers and same thing. Also Msi Afterburner doesn't detect the card either even if I boot with the card with the artifacts.
Is there another flash tool that might work? I'm running off my Igpu now.
Thx for any help

Mine does that sometimes, Firestorm that is. All I do is just end nvflash and firestorm in the task manager of windows and then start it back up again and it works.

I'm also getting this in device manager
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

I think If I can stop windows from stopping the card than maybe I can flash it back. But don't know how.

And now my stock bios is missing. mad.gif
Man I hope I don't have a $480 paper weight doh.gif

Guys, all the bios files on the 1st page are for 2GB cards. Don't use them on your 4GB cards!!!

Which bios did you flash it with? I hope not one of the 2gb versions.

That wasnt for a 4gb card. Should be easy to find the stock bios and flash back.

Yes I did unfortunately. About 6 people with the 4 gb cards like me asked if they could and nobody gave an answer so I figured I would try. I know stupid move!
Problem is that Firestorm will not work now for me to flash back. and Windows is stopping the card from running.
In the mix the stock bios is now missing.
It was flashed with the EVGA on the front page of this thread.

Reflash your bios outside of windows, using the nvflash usb stick boot method on the OP. I had troubles flashing through Gigabyte's VBIOS flashing tool, and everything went perfect in the DOS mode. I flashed like 4 different bios files and nothing went wrong. Good luck!

Firstly, I would boot into Windows with the onboard (assuming you have one) graphics and download the latest OFFICIAL bios for your card. Flash your card with that bios using the DOS booting method described on the OP. Make sure your card is working again with an official bios, and wait for a 4gb bios mod from tecfreak.

You should be able to find an official bios for your card on the manufactures website. I had my Gigabyte bios sitting on my desktop downloaded from the website in case anything went wrong. If you can get into windows, you should be able to secure one from the website yourself.

How to flash and backup your VGA Bios using a bootable usb flash drive

First of all, ensure that you see the file extensions: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/show-or-hide-file-name-extensions

1. Follow the instructions on this site (scroll down) how to "Making a bootable USB stick" and prepare your usb flash drive.
http://www.techpowerup.com/printarticle.php?id=34
2. Download this nvflash version: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2128/mirrors.php
3. Extract "CWSDPMI.EXE" and "nvflash.exe" from the downloaded zip file and copy both to the root dir of your usb drive.
4. Rename your bios file to something like GTX670.ROM (max. 8 chars. and ensure that you have the *.ROM file extension).
5. Copy your bios file to the root dir of your usb drive.
6. Boot from the usb flash drive.

7. Type the following command and press [Enter] to backup your stock bios:
nvflash -b ORGBIOS.ROM

8. Flash your new bios:
nvflash GTX670.ROM

After you hopefully flashed successful press [CTRL]+[ALT]+[DEL] to reboot your machine.

The filenames are only examples. If you want to flash a bios from a different vendor (not recommended), then you have to add those two parameters "nvflash -4 -5 GTX670.ROM".

This is the safest way of flashing a new vga bios.
