I'm wondering if you did a search and came across all the threads on fake cards.
It's most likely a GTS450 Rev.2 or a GTX550Ti.

So many threads on fake cards here lately. I doubt it's worth your while trying as these attempts tend to end in failure and you have a crap card at the end of it anyway.

btw, the GT 1030 has 2GB RAM, not 3GB.

yeah i know its a fake card but i just got it for free on a garage sale when i purchased their tower for $15

At first install latest Fermi driver 391.35
Then prevent Windows Update from Updating Specific Device Driver in Windows 10

It should be working then in spite of the faked VBIOS header (until an app tries to use more VRAM than built in your fake GPU).
thank you sir i'll try that.

Well, good luck with it, I hope you get a proper BIOS on it. It's nice to do as a project, I guess.

Thanks for the motivation. Well in 3 days ill be having my hardware bios flasher that i ordered on ebay coz nvflash is not working due to the bios being locked. Hopefully i can restore the proper bios to make it a working gpu for emulation..

Good luck and I definitely wanna hear how it worked out. Don't miss out any of the gory details! :D

Just shows you how sneaky those scammers are to mod the BIOS so that it's locked for nvflash and feels great to lift a finger at them and win.

so I tried to Flash the gpu with gts 450 rev 2 bios available on forums. but it seems not pushing thru. when i try to verify it always says "chips with contents are in disagreement" or i might be doin' something wrong.

i have a back up of the fake Bios attached.
if someone can look at it maybe can point me to the right direction
