    That's likely not the new bios for your card but likely a BIOS for a new model...

    If you have integrated GFX load up on that and replace the BIOS with the correct version.

    EDIT:
    You may need to FLASH your BIOS in DOS in order to get it to work with your backup bios.

    Yes it's my bios and i tried to update it with: this. is it wrong? and i'm lucky that i've backed my original bios with GPU-Z before update, so turned back without errors :)

    Yes that BIOS you linked was wrong, the number I put a red mark by is different then yours meaning it's for a different model

    Your BIOS should have this number

    So is it working now?

    The bios's in the VGA collection aren't always updates for the card you have...some are but most are BIOS's for newer or differently made models of the same card...such as different memory etc...etc..

    Mine is working. I understood now. Thanks. 113-C223P-X001 came to X007, I thought that it was new bios for my card :)
