Hello,





recently bought a fake nvidia geforce gtx1050ti from aliexpress.


I cannot get it to function on windows 10, not with the faked win10 drivers, which were on the attached cd and not with original nvdia drivers.... only black screen

It only boots to win10 with no drivers installed...

I want to use it only for office purposes with correct resolution...



Chip is gf116-200-kb-a1


I have read out bios with ch341a and attached it here.


I have downloaded some bioses from here gts450 and ti550, no bios works



Perhaps somebody can help and say, what card it is and what bios will be function here.





many thanks in advance

it's most likely to be a GTS 450 or GTX 550 ti, either way, these are old crappy GPUs there are some ways to fix them and I'm pretty sure someone already had a solution.

Send me a message if you're still around, and I'll give a shot at fixing the bios you uploaded. Don't want to waste the time if you no longer have the card.

Not to put you on the spot or anything, but why buy a card from Aliexpress? Even crappy cards like the fake 1050Ti sell for something like $70 - $80, and you can buy a GT 710 off Amazon for $70. I even see a 1GB model from Asus selling for $60.

Buy off reputable sites; at least you know what you're paying for.

yes i have this card. please send the modified bios.
Rename to .bin to use.

Changes:
GPU reports as a 450v2 instead of a 1050ti
GPU clock speed raised from 600mhz to 700mhz

Currently unchanged: Amount of system ram reporting.

Try this and see if it works.

If there are issues with the RAM amount reported, please post a screenshot of GPUZ showing how much it reports, and post the number of physical ram chips on the card and the model number on the top of them. The RAM entries for your BIOS look odd. It's not set to 4GB like a lot of the fakes are, so I haven't messed with that part yet.

Keep the card for troubleshooting post problems. Hear this, the bios rom must contain all video output parameters that the card physically has

Two more files attached. One identifies the card as a 450v1 , the other is the same 450v2 as posted previously but with the GPU downclocked back to 600mhz as it was previously.

Is the distortion in bios / post as well , or only after driver loads?

If possible, please get a screenshot of gpu-z and the requested RAM info. Something about the RAM section in this BIOS still seems off.

I did take your original bios and modify it. One of them literally has the only change as changing the device id to report as a 450. You can open them in a hex editor and compare it.

The bios for that card is actually only around 60k. If you inspect your 256k files you will find they just have a blank FF entry padding the file size.

I trimmed the extra and added a correct checksum to them.

As mentioned earlier, the memory entries in your bios look odd. How much is it reporting in gpuz? Is the corruption you are seeing before or after you get into windows?

Please post pics of your memory chips. My current suspicion is the memory clock needs to be lowered.

Again, to clarify, I am not doing guesswork with random bios from other cards. Everything I have posted here is a mod of the one you uploaded.

FIGURE OUT THE MEMORY,,,, THEN MEMORY SIZE,,, that will save u a lot of time... u might have to make a custom bios with memory timings from one bios put onto another bios with the correct chip id...


262kb just means bigger bios chip then 256 also u might be dealing with a 1g or below card.

You have a 1GibiByte(GigaByte) card

Make sure you read the file contents which should mention 1 HDMI, 1 VGA, 1 DVI, Samsung Memory



GF116

GF106

The card is not worth anything today so just use it as a troubleshooting card.
