A very easy way to flash the eVGA 680i is to burn the bios file (usually a .bin file) onto a CD. Just the bin file. Nothing more. Then when the computer is booting up, hit ALT+F2 (if you time it right, just once, if not, then you will be hitting this combination repeatedly). And voila!! The bios has been thoroughly flashed.

Of course several things to remember:

1. Always load defaults before flashing (for the overclockers out there).

2. After flashing, power down the entire computer, including the power supply. I clear my CMOS as well, but I am not sure that you have to.

That is all and I hope that helps.

You should have seen a menu that showed that it is flashing (loading files). I am not sure that you flashed your bios. Did you see the flash utility?

which one do you need? the newest one?

which version are you on right now? it is a P# on your boot screen

anywhere from P19 to P30.
