Just type this while confirming each choice by pressing 'y':
- nvflash --eraseeeprom
- nvflash -4 -5 -6 biosname.rom (so, make sure to use the actual name of the BIOS that you are flashing to)
- Press Ctrl+Alt+Del when it is finished
After this, you can allow Windows to do its thing upon the first bootup. But then do this:
- Delete C:\\NVIDIA (seriously, it is safe and I recommend it)
- Uninstall the NVIDIA display driver and all related software using the Programs and Features control panel
- Open Device Manager and look for "Display adapters".
- If you see "Display adapters" (it actually should not be there), then expand this branch and right-click your card and choose "Uninstall"
- Close Device Manager
- Reboot into Safe Mode
- Once in Safe Mode, open this version of Driver Sweeper (so install it before the first step above just to ensure it is installed)
- Select "NVIDIA - Display"
- Click "Clean"
- Close Driver Sweeper
- Reboot back into the normal mode of Windows
- Install driver version 258.96 (http://us.download.nvidia.com/Window...glish_whql.exe)
- Reboot after the installation
- Uninstall the Stereoscopic 3D driver from within the Programs and Features control panel
If there are still problems after this, then I don't know what else to do.
I actually did this exact thing last night, to no avail. I've got a standard 465 on my hands, I'm sure of that now.
Before all this talk about the autoexec.bat, I was actually doing everything manually. I will try again to make this thing work. Could it be the most recent driver version? Should I try an older version?
Maybe I'll try re-downloading the driver when I get home as well.
I would just go out and buy a GTX470, but the stock coolers scare me a little. Not sure why, but it would be nice to have some sort of better cooling solution. But then those particular cards are much more expensive, so considering the reference cards comes back into play.
I just don't think the 465 is a big enough jump (espeiclally for the price of the GE) from a 4870 to justify it. I'd rather have a 470.Edited by Cavi - 10/6/10 at 8:55am
