post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, How do i create a crash dump for EVGA 8800 GTS 640 MB.
I want to access the BIOS to edit it with NiBiTor.v3.8. So which
folder would the bios be in?

THANKS for any help.

Use nvflash and do a backup of the rom. For verson 4.x i think the command it nvflash -b biosback.rom
biosback is whatever you want to call it.

I use GPU-Z to backup and retreive the bios from my card. Just click the little button to the right of the bios name.

So let me get this straight: judging from your screenshot there, to backup the original bios and import a modded bios, all you need to do is follow the images in your screenie?
