Hi,

I want to update the BIOS in my MSI GTX 1070 graphics card by Nvflash, but unfortunately information about lack of access appears. I use Windows 7 SP1 x64 and I used newest NVIDIA NVFlash. I received a ROM file from the admin of the MSI Poland forum.

The contents of the folder:



Update .241 to .242

I pasted the nvflash folder to the C disk and I entered such commands in CMD:

cd C:/ [I PUSHED ENTER]
cd nvflash [I PUSHED ENTER]

Then I entered such a command:

nvflash64.exe -4 -5 -6 NV330MH.rom [I PUSHED ENTER] (This command is probably for Win 10).

And such a message appeared:



And then I entered such a command:

nvflash64 -6 NV330MH.rom

And such a message appeared:



Does anyone know what's going on?

What is the reason you want to flash it?

If it works there is no reason to flash it, just leave it as is.

I just want to update bios for a newer one. Many people do that. The bios is also updated for the motherboards.

Does anyone know why the access is denied?

If your VBios is functioning correctly there is no need to update
flashing an updated bios is something you do "if instructed by Manufacturer" to correct a known problem.
as you have found out Problems can occur and can "brick your Card" .
Yours has not "Bricked" so you can consider yourself fortunate.
LEAVE IT AS IT IS

Because it is the wrong bios for the card

Why do you want to flash the BIOS ? if it's running well just keep it , i've joined TPU less than 1 year and the amount of bricked GPU i've seen is just unbelievable.

This NV330MH.rom file is an invalid bios for this card? This file to download gave me the admin MSI PL forum.

I just wanted to have a newer vbios, I read a lot of topics in which people ask to update vbios. So I thought I want to have a newer vbios too. I gave up this thought. :)

Thank you for stopping me.

just because somebody is an admin on a forum it does not mean they know what they are talking about. he may just have access to files and information that some on the forum do not. also he may have just pulled the bios file from the tpu database and renamed it, packaged it nice and sent it your way. he may not want to admit this too you but this is more likely than you think.

if your card works than there is really nothing to gain from updating the bios. the performance will not increase. now, if you want to increase performance download msi afterburner and overclock. you will see a vast improvement overclocking than trying to flash a slightly updated bios. set a custom fan profile and raise the memory and core.

good luck.

I think that Bios is for the gaming X, as he mentions the straight 8G version in the OP I can only guess that's why he couldn't do it in any case.

Dude, I have two of these cards; on the disc that came with it, it has a program / module called MSI Live, (Update 6). If the bios needs to be updated this program will do it for you.

Peace,

Yes it is wrong, look if the graphics card bios was meant to be updated often it would provide a GUI for it but board makers do not.

OP seems to have no reason to update the vbios, albeit many issues with pascal were fixed by add-in partners via vbios updates, such as tweaked fan profiles for cooling vrm's, or display port fixes and readiness by nvidia themselves, even performance boosts such as the 11ghz gddr5x bonus. Evga has issues several pascal vbios updates, though always provided an exe windows based flasher, not just rom file. So the reason could be valid, but the file must match the exact id and model of the card.

Actually it has to match the device ID, Subsystem ID, ram brand-type-model, available video ports...

Yeah, though sometimes a generic bios might fit other brands, such as the asus volt unlocked mod for the 1080, but in general in complex cards like pascal I wouldn't risk it.

I have a question for you. Why do you think this vbios is incorrect? This admin wrote to me that he gave me the correct vbios. He deliver the vBIOS update straight from the MSI server.

Because the Access denied message could be because of an ID Mismatch, on googling the Bios you were given it would appear that it is for a Gaming X, you did not mention in your OP that you had the gaming X.

Thanks, you didn't say that in the OP, MSI have 16 versions of the 1070.

I do believe he is stating the RAM (memory) of your card is different, not that you are some sort of animal.

I understood that he called me a ram = idiot. Here in Poland there is a saying idiot = ram. :kookoo: Gentlemen I did not know that the MSI GTX 1070 has many versions.
