I recently decided to update my graphics card bios since I still had the first version available for that card. (Asus Strix GTX970)

I downloaded the bios from http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/vga/nVidia/strix970.rar
and extracted the colorful icon (strix970.exe)
I then dragged the file 84.04.84.00.AS17.rom over nvflash.exe and confirmed then rebooted when it told me to.

(One point here) there were two rom files in the folder, 84.04.84.00.AS17.rom and the file 84.04.84.00.AS18.rom but it was not clear which one I should use.

After the reboot I tried to install the latest Nvidia driver 391.24 and it kept failing. I then realized that my video card is not detected by windows in device manager. Nor is it seen by GPU-Z. Strangely though HWInfo detects it correctly but has timing and other information missing.

What can I do to fix this issue?

Nevermind, I managed to fix it. (or windows did)

I had driver installation prevented in group policy to stop windows updates "updating" my drivers with drivers that were constantly older than what I was running.

I reset that group policy to 'not configured' and windows update installed 'windows basic display adapter'

I updated a second time via windows update and windows has now installed Nvidia drivers from December 2017 (but thats ok because now the card is detected properly I can update the driver manually)

Cheers
