Hello to everyone.

I've extracted the rom file from my graphic card Geforce GTX 1060 with the tool gpu-z simply by clicking on "save as file" located on the right of the bios version ; I have modified the internal code of the rom file and now I would like to use the modified version instead of the original one. I would like to know if inside the package of all nvidia drivers there is a rom file and if it is inside there,how I can replace the original one with the version that I want to modify ? is there a procedure that I can follow ? thanks.

Is there a reason you want to flash the card other than taking a chance that it'll brick?

A rom (read only memory) file must be FLASHED into the card in order to replace the original one.
