This is now just about common knowledge, but not eveyone knows so here it goes


In all GF6200 & some 6600 cards the option to monitor temps is disbaled in the BIOS. its quite easy to enable so we will over it quickly so you can have that option if you need




You need to download 2 programs, one to flash, and one to enable the option.

1.nibitor "to enable the option in the bios"
2. make boot disk, you can do this in windows xp by right clicking on your A drive, then choose format and it'll give you the options to create a bootddisk "to boot into dos"


3. nvflash "to read/write the bios"

step 1,making the disk:
create the boot disk for dos, then put nvflash.exe & cwsdpmi.exe into that bootdisk as well.

step 2,saving the bios:
With the disk you created still in your drive, restart your computer and let it boot off of the floppy "you can set you computer to do this in its bios if ts not setup to do so already".

Next type “Nvflash â€"b biosbackup.rom†(without quotes) and press <enter>.

Nvflash will now save your bios to the disk.

Then when it’s done, remove the disk and restart your computer.

step 3, editing the bios:
Launch the program nibitor, load your backed up bios int othe program,


once opened, goto the tempratures tab, then click ok "read the warning", then check the box.


once yourdone that you can save the bios, and put it onto the disk.


Step 4, flashing the bios:
With the disk you created still in your drive, restart your computer and let it boot off of the disk.

once in dos type "nvflash -5 -6 biosmod.rom†(without quotes) and hit <enter>.

Nvflash will now flash your cards BIOS. When it’s done, remove the disk and restart your computer.

Congratulations! You should now be able to monitor the temperature of your Nvidia GeForce 6200/6600.

i hope you enjoyed reading this how to, as much as i did writting it.

I am forced to use the forceware 72.13 (the only driver that works properly for overclocking); however it doesn't report the correct temperature of the GPU.

Newer drivers do display correct temp; however I can't overclock.

Is there any way to combine the driver files (72.13 and some new ones) to get both features. Is there a particular dll file that controls the temperature settings in the display properties->advanced panel.
