i flashed some x800Xl bios to my x800pro and got a blank screen obviously indicating it was bad bios flash. But i already had another nvidia agp card as a backup. But no pci cards. I was wondering if there is any other way to bios flash my bios bak to x800pro without a pci card!!!!?????

you can try to flash it blind if you think it's booting but showing no video. Just give it enough time to boot to the floppy then blind type the commands to flash it back. If it's not booting you'r S.O.L.

Pretty much, you just have to be sure to flash the agp card and not the pci one
.

Oh and .. you'll probably have to switch card priority in your bios. Put pci before agp.

You can do this with an autoexec.bat file. Check out the guide in my sig for more details.

By the way, don't flash an XL bios to your card unless it has an R430 core. Use XT if you have an R420/423

You can use the same pc. If nothing happened, is your floppy disk the first boot device in the bios. You should at least get disk access when you reboot and hear the bios being loaded.
