I found this article. Maybe you've already seen it but here it is: http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/...ng/vidcard/107

The article's instructions are not clear at some point in my opinion and I'm hoping to find something else a little better written. Did you download the appropriate bios upgrade that matches the video ram on the card?

I just won a 9550 256mb on ebay tonight and might be attempting the bios upgrade as well. I would like to know how it turns out for you.

It talks about adding a command parameter that bypasses the bios upgrade bock protect.
