Someone here had a download package, I used that.
Made the bootable usb drive
Loaded the listed files on to it
- Autoexec.bat didn't show up, but when I attempted to put it over there again it gave me the "do you want to replace..." jargon. It's a hidden file, but that was enough confirmation for me that it was there.
The nvflash things were working. I said no to the initial question...
nvflash ---4 -5 -6 470.rom
Warnings... yes, yes, yes
ctrl-alt-del to reboot, remove usb
Boots into windows
windows finds device and installs, asks to reboot, reboot.
Starting windows screen shows, completes.
Then nothing. The back light of my monitor is on, so it reads some sort of signal, but nothing appears.
When I go back to reflash, I get more errors than the first time. I forget exactly what it says, but it says basically that the codes in the firmware and on the board are not matching (CC16 and CC21 maybe?).
I've tried three BIOS, all with the same result. msi 470 twin frozr, reference 470, and the one that everyone loves the hell out of because of the voltage mod.
I also had the mind to check GPU-Z BEFORE I rebooted windows for the driver install, and it shows as a 470, but some of the fields are "unavailable", including the RAM count box.
Having 10 memory chips is half the battle. The other half is having this physically printed on the GPU chip: "GF100-275-A3". If it says that, then it's a GTX 470. But if it says "GF100-030-A3", then it's just a GTX 465 - even there are 10 memory chips on the PCB.
Yeah I've heard you say that before, but I'm not about to remove this cooler to check :/ Never done it before, though now I'm wondering if it might be worth the trouble.Edited by Cavi - 10/4/10 at 8:43pm
