OK, my issue is with unlocking temp setting for a Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT.
Its an AGP card, and i am following hte guide here: https://www.overclock.net/faqs/16387-...g-6600-gt.html

Well i have everything listed in supplies but one issue, drdflash does not seem to work at all. It will not write anything to the floppy(I have tried several) and will not boot me into DOS. nvFlash.exe writes fine and so does the other app that goes with it(mem controller?), but drd just does not work...

Anyone have any suggestions for me

Rest in peace D.Speed°TBAPb

Yes i have tried another disk(I have actually gone so far as to try a different drive). I may be doing somthing wrong here, this is the order i go in...

run the flashy thingy to the floppy, then move nvFlash and other .exe it comes with onto the disk. Wrong order or what?

Oh yeah ty for the welcome

Rest in peace D.Speed°TBAPb

Here's what you do:

1. Run drdflash.exe to create your boot floppy

2. This is where things go confusing for me when I modded my BIOS. While still in Windows, run nvflash513-[Guru3d.com].exe(the original you downloaded) to a scratch folder. This should create a path like this: "C:\\(scratch folder)\\Guru3d.com\\Setup\
vflash.exe"
Copy the new nvflash.exe to your floppy.

From there go to step 3 in the original guide and continue from there.
