If NVFLASH refuses to update the BIOS, what difference would it make how many GPU's I have in the system, or which slot they're in ETC?

GPU0 I thought was always the primary display, maybe not. Can you post the output of --list?

Also at this point are you trying to flash the backup of your STOCK BIOS you made before attempting to flash?

What version of NVFLASH are you using? The one from this thread right?

I've tried every BIOS I have, 2 different modified Ln2 BIOS, and the stock one.
I've also tried using the "safe mode" button on the card, which is "supposed" to flash the stock BIOS back onto the card. (That doesn't work either)

I've tried using 3 different versions of NVFLASH, the official one, the Joe-dirt one, and the DOS one, but the DOS one doesn't support the 980 TI.


I can post an output of --list in a bit, I think it lists the GPU's in order that they are in the system. Since the 980 TI was in slot #1, it showed up as -0.
It must of been that way, because when I tried flashing -1, the numbers weren't even close to the same for the BIOS names and stuff, (since it was the 580)

I've also tried in windows 7, same result. Beginning to think the Ln2 BIOS is corrupt somehow, in which case I'll have to send it to a buddy I know, he may be able to fix it. There's a guy I know that was speaking to ASUS VGA R&D team, but they haven't responded to him yet. He may be able to assist in some sort of RMA for repairs, if I have to pay for it I'd be willing to do that as well.

I just want Ln2 mode to work, otherwise the Ln2 pot I bought to use on the card is useless frown.gif Part of me wishes ASUS would let me RMA, but I don't want to replace the card because it does 1550|2250 on water frown.gif

Hmm.. It is being challenging isn't it..

Can you switch the slots around? Maybe it does have some relation (not sure why) to the order in which the GPUs are installed. There could just be something I am not understanding (I don't own that GPU) but you should be able to re-flash it...

There is a NVFLASH --protectoff commmand but I assumed since you were able to flash already it was already off.

Not sure if anyone else has any ideas..

I pastebinned all the info I get when trying multiple different BIOS flashes, I tried 2 different stock ones, and 2 different modified ones. (Multiple times I might add)

It just seems that nvflash REFUSES to flash the BIOS no matter what I try.

Managed to fix the BIOS.


Turns out when I shorted the Ln2 contacts to enable the BIOS, it didn't bridge them properly and it wore off over time. I redid the short and it finally let me flash a BIOS and use the card properly again.

The new flasher probably introduces protection uploading a BIOSes with other cards such sc + on hybrids
