    Alright people,

    I've got a problem in my hands. Using the 5.88 version of nvflash, i'm trying to use the nvflash -i1 --eraseeprom command to clean the BIOS of a 8800 GTS, but so far it doesn't seem to be working, and i think its because of the version, since it will just give me the prompt of available commands, and wont do anything. I did not really tried using an older version, because i am afraid it may not be wholly compatible with my 8800 GTS SLI system. Anyone knows which version i can use securely on that enterprise, or any other command to purge it once and for all from there?

    Thanks.

    Appears like you certainly may be using a version of NVflash that is not compat with your 8800GTS?

    I currently find nvflash v.5.67 works just fine with my 8800GTS !

    And the basic command for erasing your second card's bios would be,

    nvflash -i1 -e

    :)
