Is it possible to update your video card bios without using a floppy?
I don't think so.
You can't flash from the CD-ROM.
I don't think USB is supported outside of 32 bit applications.
It's even written on these forums you dummies: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=81056&page=7
Towards the end of the page.
You got 15 post and think you can call someone a dummie? c:
Ah, interesting. Nice find. Thanks for the post and you can call me a dummy anytime if I make an assumption and I'm wrong.
post count doesnt show inteligence it shows how much you like guru3d
cant you use a usb stick to flash?
Well if you use the newer version of NVFlash where you run the command window inside Windows, I would assume it would be possible. You would need USB support in DOS, which isn't supported in DOS. You can have the USB/Legacy support for USB keyboards, but that's about it.
Well, the subject just got a little more fuzzy.
I'm a DUMMY too...
I was kidding, just didn't put a smilie there. Besides, dummie is a nice word.
Another alternative for flashing without a flopy could be by making a bootable CD. But you have to make a backup of the old one from windows.
You can use a formatted USB memory stick if your motherboard supports booting from it.
Info here on how to prepare the USB stick.....http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000215.html
you can use Bootable CD Rom
you can use USB Stick
you can use majic...
The BIOS BFG emailed me for the 7900GTX was flashed from my desktop.
Don't know if this will help but here ... http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/ i used it to flash my 6600 with a 6600gt bios lol
What are the benefits of changing the video card bios? Noticeable performance increases?
If you change the bios to a overclocked bios, sometimes you can change your card say from a 6800GS to a 6800Ultra just by changing the bios.
So yes it would give you a performance increase but you need to research it first because it don't always work with certain cards, And if you don't do it right your card might stop working.
I can't believe you did that. It must have had disasterous results unless you had some crazy DDR3 6600 Vanilla for some reason.
Well actually i didn't have disasterous results, it worked okay until i started playing Oblivion, in which it just wouldn't stay stable..>_> Other games worked out fine though somehow, I did however change the clockspeeds of the GT bios down to my overclocked vanilla through nibitor.
So you did have the DDR2 6600, correct? Did you actually see a performance gain from flashing the bios other than just the increased clock speeds? Did you increase the voltage any?
