How To: Flash Nvidia cards in Windows

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
Remember, you must flash reference cards with reference BIOS.

TechPowerUp! VGA BIOS Collection


SOFTWARE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.You will need this software:

NiBiTor

Nvflash - Supports 580 BIOS
---------------------- --------------------------------------------------------

FLASHING TIME!!!

Ok this can be kinda tricky for your people to learn command prompt (im only 16 and Im learning the old tricks from back in the day )

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now what you will want to do it put all of the nvflash components that's in the .zip and the newbios.rom in the same folder for ease


COMMAND PROMPT TIME!!

Ok now get command prompt open, if you don't know how for some of you, go to start > run > type "cmd" without quotes and hit enter

Now what it should show that your in C:/Documents and Settings/"your username profile">

Now since desktop is in the "your username profile", it won't take long to flash now. Should look like this.


now type in command prompt "cd desktop" without quotes. It should look like this now


now type "cd nvflash", now should like this. (This may confuse you, you remeber where you put the main nvflash components and your newbios.rom at?. Re-name that folder nvflash)


This is where the flashing begins, if you at those correct screens type

"nvflash.exe newbios.rom" without quotes



Now, If you got SLI, your going to have to direct the flash to each card, and each card has a different device ID like in this screen shot


Do the command. nvflash.exe --list


Now I don't got SLI, but my 460 HAWK is Device ID 0

Example

SLI 470's, your device ID for the 1st card is 0, and your second card is 1.

You would type to flash the cards:

nvflash.exe i0 -4 -5 -6 biosname.rom

nvflash.exe i1 -4 -5 -6 biosname.rom

Unfortunatey you can't currently flash nVidia card BIOS's with Nibitor if you're using a 64-bit operating system.

Never knew that since I have no use for 64 bit as of right now.

I'd only trust a floppy with a £100+ graphics card. Use a USB stick for motherboard BIOS.
