Failed GTX 680 flash

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I figured I would post here since nobody replies for ages in the GTX 680 Lightning club.

I have a MSI GTX 680 Power Edition card, the stock bios is 80.04.47.00.16, which is strange since the Power Edition is supposed to just be a Lightning with a different bios and its not listed in the Lightning club as a locked LN2 bios. Anyway i went ahead and attempted to flash to the 80.04.09.00.F8.rom and upon doing this my cards fans went up to 100% and the screen looked awul, colours washed out, screen resolution set to like 640x200 and I couldnt change it even after reinstalling drivers.

What did I do wrong? I followed the instructions in the lightning club. Thankfully I backed up the original rom, so i just put that back on now. Does anyone know how I can get the unlocked LN2 bios on my gpu?

thanks

Damn, no good. I am not familier with graphic card bios flashes but since you are still able to get picture (i understand its bad) are you able to retry the bios flash process?

I wouldnt worry much about MSI lighting cards having similar bios than the stock cards, if you are getting the performance you are promised, you should be alright.

I have managed to flash back to the stock rom, i made a backup prior to doing it. But I have just tried flashing the lightning locked LN2 bios which worked fine, however soon as I try flash the unlocked lightning LN2 bios it gets these wierd screen artifacts/problems.
