Hmm I'm guessing you are either referring to BIOS flashing or perhaps you are stealing some part of the floppy power delivery... I know some old GPUs used berg connectors. I believe I had an old 6800 that used one.

Alright cool, a couple guesses so I can reveal... Full in depth because I'm bored...

Ok, so I am a member of the Beigemodder's Club here on OCN. I only have one entry, but it was major fun overhauling an ugly old beige ATX tower with paint, oldschool setup, etc etc..

A couple months ago I was searching CL for my next beigemod, and ran across a NICE old Antec full ATX beast of a case. It had an Intel core2Duo, with 2GB RAM, the 8800GTX, Antec PSU, and some misc side stuff. $25!!! So I snatched it. Worked flawlessly, even tho I only wanted the case.

Here's where the story starts...

End of last week I decided to pull my 950 SC from the HTPC (s939 of course) and run this old 8800GTX for the nostalgia. I used to have two of these back in the day, full accelero cooler and all. Beast oldschool gear.

I opened an old GPU-Z from back then, and it opened populating almost all the data fields to show me what I had there. You know, clocks, how much memeory, die size, etc etc...

Restart the machine after driver install (let nvidia search machine for best driver) and now I get no video. And this is no video from BIOS to desktop. Not drver issue, but hardware video issue. Mobo still detects video because it boots, but no video is shown.

So long story short, I bricked my "new" 8800GTX just wanting to mess with it, and now need to remember how to, and do a blind Win98 boot, and nvflash, something I haven't done since 2010 probably...

So thats it, the floppy will be used to blind flash the GPU BIOS since it bricked JUST RESTARTING the machine... LOL Had something to do with GPU-Z accessing the rom, had to...

You might be wondering, "Yo Swish, how tf are you gonna get the BIOS to flash it?" Well, that was part of why I opened GPU-Z, I wanted to see what memory IC it used, since I think the two I had in 2007 -8 were identical cards to this one... MEANING, I've got a BIOS backup in my HDD somewhere.

Wow, such a nice PC for 25$, that would be sold for at least 150€ here :/. I hope you can flash and revive that 8800GTX, i've got mine with an Accelero Xtreme fitted (but the fan's connector is dead tongue.gif ) and still it's a beast. It's running right now as a passive card in my dad's Phenom PC just to run dual monitors biggrin.gif

PD: I thought the Floppy + 8800GTX reference pic was about both things operating very loud redface.gif

Man, it's crazy to think back on how crazy good the 8800GTX was at the time. Also, it's always a treat to have a reminder of how (not so) far Antec has come with cable management inside their cases lachen.gif.

Thanks everyone for playing, it was more of a joke (only because of the circumstances.)

THINKING to mod this case into my new main rig case, and ditch my tech bench (which is old and creaky) and get rid of that water cooling stuff. Side window is OBVIOUS, and I know someone who can professionally etch acrylic. Thinking to have the case powder coated through work. Will just have to have all mods done, and all parts quoted before I went for it. smile.gif

Do you mind linking the mod thread you mentioned? I'm being lazy, I know, but I'm definitely curious to look through it tongue.gif.

I have a beige mod I should find all the photos. DonT know how far back they go.

You could always run dual graphics to flash the one card, I haven't had to use a floppy in at least a decade smile.gif

I'm so glad to see this thread still active.

My girlfriends laptop died last week, and being a computer science student and TA, having access to something basic that can SSH and compile little programs locally is kind of important.
Good thing I still have a bunch of my 939 gear!

She's now running my original MSI Neo4-f board with my first Opteron dual core, a 175. 4x1GB of matching OCZ DDR-500 (at 2T unfortunately, mostly because I was in a rush, but honestly I'm not sure this setup is capable of 1T). Then a lovely GTX 560 that I inherited.

Unfortunately the onboard sound is not functioning for some reason. Windows sees the sound card and seems to have the proper drivers for it (from MSI's site), but no audio out of any of the ports.

I would swap it with my DFI board, but I have had issues getting it to boot with certain RAM combos ever since the last 939 competition I participated in a few years ago. The weird thing is that removing a stick of RAM while the system is plugged in can sometimes boot the machine, which makes me fear for my prized OCZ sticks' lives.
