Need help with "re-flashing" my gtx 770 back to original BIOS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers!

I am in great need of help and/or advice on this so I would appriciate if you take time and respond.

SHORT: I think I accidentaly flashed my gtx 770 with a non-compatible "flash image" (dont know the correct word) and need help to restore it to normal.

LONG: I just bought a new build today, my FIRST build, and it contains ASUS gtx 770 4GB. I have never done any overclocking and barely know what it means, but after hours of research I've realized this is probably the right people to ask for help.

I had problems with my brand new PC freezing in game and I think it had something to do with my GPU. So I researched it and I found that the GPU BIOS had to be updated to a newer version. I found the bios update on asus website but only for 2GB and since I have 4GB it said it wasnt compatible with that patch. So I searched the web and found something promising that said gtx 770 4GB update

http://www.galaxytechus.com/__US__/Driver6/BIOS?areas=__US__

GALAXY GeForce GTX 770 GC 4GB

http://www.galaxytechus.com/Areas/__US__/downloads/GTX770_GC_4GB.rar

and I downloaded it and ran it, and it said something about not compatible but I thought maybe this had something to do with it being GALAXY and not ASUS and I proceeded (which I realize was very stupid).

When my pc restarted my screen was super wierd and I could barely see anything, the resolution had been reduced to minimum it seemed and I had to "draw" around the screen with my mouse to be able to see stuff (and I could also see like 6 mouse cursors.

I now realize this was super stupid and I have to reset my card to original bios to make it work, I am currently running the PC on the motherboard integrated graphics to be able to do anything. What can I do to restore my card?

Thanks for taking your time to read trought this, I really need help and I have NO experience with this kind of stuff so please, feel free to treat me like an idiot for me to understand tongue.gif

You need to use the NVFlasher and must know the commands. See the OCN recovery guide:

Where can I find the original bios for my card? I cant find it anywhere, only for the 2GB version..

Well MKVTech.net used to host a lot of the stock bios files for many different cards but they parked their domain and went poof. Asus' official site might have the original bios posted in the support/download section. You can also check TechPowerUP's collection they usually have a majority of the latest bios available.

http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/

If you can't find it in there then find someone else who has the same card that can dump you a copy of the bios.
