Ofcourse u have copied all the files to diskette not to CD or hard drive?
Yes all files are on discs. 1 boot disc and 1 nvflash with original bios
Sorry and another withwfflash just incase but neither work.
What's NVFlash saying when u enter the right commands?
I had the same problem a short time ago and everything worked, just use good commands in NVFlash (4.42, not 4.46!)
It just says there is no NV device. I was using nvflash4.41 . On original flashing it said it was successful, but on reboot there was nothing.
Don't use WFFlash from Leadtek - it always says that ur card isn't NV if u had programmed wrong BIOS.
NVflash must work.
Sorry it doesn't. Just says no NV device.
Just another thought according to device manager and sis Sandra they both show nothing connected to the agp slot.
Can I use NV flash 5.08?
Also from what I understand, I should back up my bios, and then update it right? then I restart and reinstall drivers did I miss any thing?
Use nvflash 4.41 or 4.42
commandline is: nvflash -u -p "yourbios.rom"
where yourbios is the name of the new bios
other than that you seem to have everything.
You can also put -y at the end after yourbios. rom -y and it will reboot for you.
1 more thing I lost the link to mavik site can some one drop me a link please I have to get the the 4.41 flash.
download for nvflash.

Thanks Perin for message...
Well tried 5 diffrent Bios for FX5950 to flash me FX5900XT Ultra and keep getting same problem. The card is flashing no problem but when booted into windows I get default display of ( Lowest (4Bit) Colour) and if I go to my System look down hardware list Card has yellow dot (u know what I mean) then in resourses for card it says: windows cannot access the resourses this hardware requires...
So I give up, as for bios's tried these..
Leadtek 2 versions
Evga 2 versions
If anyone knows where I am going wrong please tell me
If your card is an XT you should not flash it. Read the earlier posts. I suggest flashing back to the original bios.
