I found the easiest way is to use the M-Flash feature that's right in the BIOS. Worked like a charm for me.

Is my GPU bad? I dont see how, it was working fine in my last rig...

Still only getting random freezes in game. I can play for hours before it will freeze, some times only 10 min..
Sounds like your having the same problem as me. Its annoyed the crap out of me. I just bought this graphics card and i wanna throw it. I'm thinking about taking it back, but they 'test' it and if its not defective they charge you 25$.... so i want to be 100% sure thats its defective before i take it back.

same here on the Flash thingy.

"J, did ever flashy thingy me? Did you ever use that flashy thingy on me?"


Gold,

That's why I went with an ATI card... Wouldn't even have to worry about. But, I would increase the PCI-e (v) ONE increment. See if that helps...

As far as the taskbor Only showing the highlighted boxes that are empty, I get that to if my PC reboots, oh.... 10 or so times without doing a Image restore... It's just corrupted files. Reinstall or restore from an Image. I use Norton Ghost 2003 and I get FULL Freash restore in les than 5 Minutes. I'm talking, settings, web history and unsernames and passwords! It's great!

Saved my Aresssa ton of times!

Those graphical glitches ya'll guys are experiencing are probably not the gpus. Seems like they pop up on Phenom II's with unstable cpu's.

defective for sure huh?

Plug the power cables in, keep it out of the PCI-e slot and turn the PC on. Take a screw a small phili[ps screw driver and lightly bounce it off of the PCB to make contact a few times! That will make it defective.... LOL

It's NOT the Graphics card though. It's Windows 7. reinstall or repair it... it goes away!

I quit the game and opened up Firefox to grab some software since I just reinstalled Windows (hoping that would fix my problems) and it failed again. I've tried different slots, versions of the driver, pretty much everything I can think of. I even RMA'd the card thinking it was going bad.

Any help would be much appreciated. I'm installing Windows 7 32-bit atm hoping that NVidia's 64-bit drivers are ****.

*This card worked great with my MA790X-DS4 mobo.
I'm on a gtx 285 and I love it so far. I only had driver issues with 190.06 or w/e, now it 191.xx, and they work fine for the most part. Got aftermarket cooling, and its just tearing it up. I've only used top slot so far on this board tho.

EDIT: I'm on the new beta drivers right now tho, they seem ok.

I'm on my 3rd reinstall of the night. Going back to 64-bit. The problem most definitely did not go away. I did, however, underclock and it seemed to help. Kind of sucks to have to do that. I read on Tom's forum about a lot of BFG cards having the incorrect BIOS. Supposedly flashing to the correct BIOS fixes the problem.

Well that didn't take long. Reinstalled Windows 7 x64. It loads my desktop and bam, driver failed. This is really frustrating. Could it possibly be an unstable cpu?

I had a similar problem that turn out to be the ram.. either that are something isn't stable.

Are you getting any system logs when the PC crashes?

USB stick is the easiest for me, just a few little steps and you're finish. I could never get M-Flash to work.
