Got a picture of the whole front and whole back of the card?

Also, why aren't you returning it as it's a fake?

It's unlikely that you will even find one for that particular GTS 450 you have , if it works fine I'd suggest leaving it as it is or return it if you can.

The foto of video card.

It does not work well. I installed windows 7 and windows 10.

It is not stable and the driver crashes.

for that I wanted to make a downgrade to the gts 450 version.

D33006 means it's a Gigabyte GPU.

EDIT: It's a GV-N450TC-1GI

Then return it...

im guessing there is more to it than what we know as that one question seems to be omitted from the replies ;)


@Enea Radu , please post the for sale page you got it from, that way we can help as best we can. It would also help legitimize your request. Because if you think about it someone who is trying to sell a fake video card ,could request our help to make it work again ,and that's not something i myself will get involved with. I'm not saying that's the case here , just helping clear up any reservations. Returning would be best option if you really bought it this way unknowingly tho.

i cant speak for others, but personally, there is no way to tell if You are trying to fix, then resell a modded GPU, or genuinely the victim of Fraud. If its the latter please Post the FS page link you got it from, if its the former, i wont help.

Can You please address why returning isnt an option?? to alleviate any concerns of myself and others?? please respond, so we can assist. otherwise this will be my last post. id like to help You, but we need to get this concern out of the way first

Welcome to TPU btw.

I do not buy anything, I do not sell anything.I just want to solve this situation,nothing more.
if you can help me with some useful advice please do it,
if not, please do not make unwarranted assumptions.
Thank you.
please dont take offense, none was intended. But you have to understand that When someone wont answer questions , and only provides specific info that they want, it can be the cause of uncertainty. Nothing about my request was an assumption, it was a request, and i explained why i requested that information. you can very simply alleviate my concerns, or ignore them.
can you explain how you came to possess the fake card ?

good luck

If you don't want assumptions offer the pertinent information without having to be dogged to do so. If u didn't buy the card how did you get it?

you'll need a flashig utility, like Nvflash,. and the appropriate bios, which you may be able to find in the TPU Bios directory.

i wont offer more help, as im not certain of the situation. I hope you can understand why

Good luck

Return it, look at the white sticker and chip used to find the correct bios if possible, good luck making it work though.

Enough with the accusations folks. Stop thinking the worst, it's ridiculous. You don't need a proof of sale to flash a bios. Find a GTS 450 bios in the collection and use NVFlash to flash the bios. I would just keep trying different ones until one sticks.

Some fake cards can't be reflashed with NVFlash, they must be reprogrammed.

Interesting, he says that the fake card BIOS thinks it has more memory than is really there, so if you play a game exceeding the usage of the actual memory, it'll crash (OP mentions this)

The other thing is traditional flashing won't work, it requires an EEPROM hard flash on the SOIC 8 BIOS chip on the board... at least the one he had.

That chip PBX580.000 isn't anything like any of the published NVida chips I've seen. Fake GPU chip too??? The Chinese sticker is scary!

1. The color of the DVI connector

2. The small heatsink near the bottom of card is questionable

good enough for me, the more they are exposed the better i can show people they have one for the people who don't know what they have. before i added them to the database they were getting thousands of missed hits on the look up button so i know even the clueless with fake gpus use gpu z.

Heh, it’s kind of working on me. It might be fun to get one and try to get it working going by sasqui’s post.
