    please tellme you made a back up of the origonal? If you did follow the thread on " how to update bios of vidcards" you have to replace the card and then flash it as I recall, although it was never too clear if you could use onboard integreated video while flashing your card.. if you did not ? oops. I do not think your card is going to be very happy..
    Download the correct bios, assuming you can get your computer to work with either above vid options are repeat the process using the correct downnloaded bios... good luck

    please, only 1 thread/problem. we don't need 2...

    ntune does NOT change anything permanently. therefore, those clocks should not be burned into bios. that is... unless you told it to.

    after a system restart, the clocks should be reset back to default. it is possible that ntune is starting up on system start and setting the clocks to the unstable setting. to get around this, boot windows in safe mode (f8 on boot) and disable ntune from starting on boot. Then, launch ntune and set your clocks back to default. there should be a button, or you can set it manually by googling what the clocks should be.

    but you should not have to go out and buy a new gfx card. thats extreme.

    sorry, but to correct you, many motherboards do not have integrated graphics unless they are a budget mobo or low end mobo. while it is possible to run another gfx card in a mobo with integrated gfx, they are primairly designed towards low-end systems that will not be used for gaming.
