Help, Asus GTX 660 without Bios

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, yesterday bought a reference asus gtx 660 and i flash to top and everything good and went back to the original bios, and today I wanted to return to flahsear but gave me an error that said something about 256bits and as you know my graphics card is 192bit so I went out MS-DOS and reboot the pc alone. But at the start and did not detect the card and the motherboard lights a red error LED on the graphics card and a few consecutive beeps and stays on but does not send video signal. I think not have bios the graphics card.
Oh overclock guys what can i do? what can i do?
My system is:
3570K
Sabertooth Z77
Asus GTX660-DC2-2GB5
8GB vengance
CM Silent Pro M2 720W

Sounds like a bad bios flash. The good news is you can potentially recover the bios. It will require you to put a working card in PCI-E slot 1, and the malfunctioning card in slot 2. This will allow you to POST, and load the OS to provide you the opportunity to flash and force the correct bios on the bad card using NVFLASH.

In command prompt use:

NVFLASH --list (to list the cards installed)
NVFLASH -I2 -4 -5 -6 name.rom (to force overwrite the bios in pci-e slot 2)

Hope this helps.

Can i use every PCIe card? i need another 660 or vga card?

You must use a new or used functioning video card in PCI-E slot 1. The bad gtx 660 will never work in its prior configuration and must be put in the second or third PCI-E slot in order for my prior instructions to work properly.

Hope this makes sense. thumb.gif
