I flashed the 9800GTX BIOS on my GTX 580 ! :rockout::twitch:

I enter the wrong code for the second card flashing ...

I entered this code, but I was typing mistakes:
nvflash --index = 0 1.rom ( true Code : nvflash --index=1 1.rom for second card )

and now GTX 580 just turned on and not booted and With nvflash not recognized for bios flashing and recovering ....

Now,What do i do ? :banghead:

Boot using the 9800GTX as the primary and force the flash to index 1.

I think the code is something like nvflash -4 -5 -6 --index=1 580.rom

Don't you need to do something like boot with a working card in slot 1 and your GTX580 in another slot, then specify the card to flash (as in flash your 580 with the right BIOS this time).

I believe you can do that, best waiting for someone with more knowledge than me.

I Know !

BuT This method is not possible :
boot with a working card in slot 1 and your GTX580 in another slot, then specify the card to flash (as in flash your 580 with the right BIOS this time).
because when the second card is 580 and I use the code nvflash --index=1 ..... Gives an error !

and i use this code for checking all Device :

nvflash --list

then just one card showed !

And the main problem is that I'm faced with it

Does the fan spin up on the GTX580?

And did you have it working in Windows before you flashed it?

You might have really borked the card to the point that it is not initializing far enough to accept commands.

If that is the case you are screwed.

What is odd is that it even let you flash the 9800GTX bios on the GTX580, it should have warned you about a bios mismatch when you tried to flash it.

I Know ! i Used nvflash --index=0 -4 -5 -6 9800gtx.rom

But I did not carefully in agreement the mismatch . ( Because I don't read the warning message I think 9800 is nvflash Purpose [But after reboot I realized that I typed the wrong code] )

The Important Things is How to flashing Default BIOS on the GTX 580 card ? When this way is impossible (nvflash --index=1 -4 -5 -6 580.rom)

The best way to program the BIOS chip is by the programmer ?

You poor muppet! I feel for ya, man.

Given that the advice above didn't work on it, I recommend RMAing it for a replacement. Just say it's dead and don't mention the flash and you should be ok. I did that with a mobo once without any problems.

Why were you flashing the other card, anyway?

And the moral of the story: always remove all graphics cards apart from the one you want to flash! :toast:

What, is the BIOS chip socketed then? That's pretty good if that's the case.

Which brand and model of GTX 580 do you have?

No, I'm asking what brand as in evga, gigabyte etc and the model from that manufacturer.

So, the BIOS is socketed then? That's the only way you can stick it in your programmer.

I Know , Brand in reference model just is a label ! ( Gainward )

Socketed means that it's mounted in a similar way to the CPU on the motherboard, in a socket. The CPU socket is soldered to the board. Otherwise, your BIOS chip will be directly soldered to the graphics card board. It can then only be removed without damage using specialist equipment that you and me won't have.

This definitely sounds like you should just return it under warranty as "dead" and be done with it.

Subbed. I want to know if this works (on mobos i know it does, never seen in on a graphics card). Plus, all BIOS chips I've seen on graphics card were soldered to the board, so good luck with that.
I'm still all for RMA with "DEAD" stamped all over it. :D FYI, after tampering with the BIOS, RMA no longer works. Unless you can cover it up very well. :laugh:

aha my bios chip soldered on the board .

Warranty takes a long time for changing or repairing card but bios flashing is a quick way !

As it's soldered, then forget it, you can't do it. You'll ruin the card trying to remove it - don't even think about it. Send the card back under warranty, you have no choice.

Be careful, because once you've unsoldered anything, your warranty is gone. Try sending it for RMA, if it fails, then try the programmer.
