Default How to flash proper nvidia bios ? - 08-28-2013, 12:12 | posts: 1,108 | Location: Timisoara, Romania

Hello, i flashed my bios for my gtx680, i used nvflash, and i followed these steps

extract the nvflash files to C:\
save the BIOS file to C:\
open elevated cmd window (hit start button, type "cmd", right click cmd icon, run as administrator)
change directory to C:\ (type " cd C:\ " )
OPTIONAL: type " nvflash --protectoff " then hit enter (turns off any error msg that may result from software write protection)
BACKUP ORIGINAL BIOS: Type " nvflash -b backup.rom " and a copy of your bios will be saved to the nvflash directory
type " nvflash -4 -5 -6 (bios name).rom "
wait for it to finish
reboot



I want to ask you if i did the proper and right thing to flash the bios. This is the most proper method to flash a bios ?

If it's working, then you flashed it correctly.

But to answer your question, yes.
