Having problems flashing GTX 260

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Everytime I try to flash my card i get an error saying that EEPROM not found. I'm using the newest NVflash and the command "nvflash -4 -5 -6 (my rom name.rom)


I've tried several different versions and still yield the same result. I tried the "nvflash --protectoff" command too and it asks which device I want to turn it off on (it shows two devices for some reason and i dont recognize the other one) so i choose the GTX 260 and still get the same EEPROM error.


Anyone know any fixes for this?

Also i took my 8800gt out while i did the flash just to avoid confusion and problems.

Weird, it can't find the EEPROM chip where the BIOS is stored. Are you using the most up to date, maybe NV flash doesn't support the 216+ version?

Yeah thats what i was thinking but i've searched around and know that other people are getting theirs flashed just fine even with the core 216. Its just this one sees two adapters for some reason? why would it see that? From the Nvidia board maybe? Anyway to dissable it?


When i try to do the nvflash --protectoff on the other adapter it says EEPROM not found but when i do it on the GTX 260 it says its successful.

I believe the adaptor may be the driver interface between the hardware and the OS. My single 4870 shows up twice, once as an adaptor and once as a piece of hardware.

Any ideas of a way around this?

I'm using a bootable DOS drive.

I read that you can use a "-i1" switch?

Any explination on what that is and what the full command is?

I thought the -i command merely invoked the program, executed it. I could be wrong.

I thought you said you could flash the GTX fine?

No when i try to flash it, it gives me the EEPROM error. I assume because it see's two adapters. The nvflash --protectoff took the protection off of it but I'm thinking its still trying to flash the bios to that other adapter. Just wondering if there is a way to change priority so i can choose which adapter to flash.
