Default Re: 8800GT Firmware issues

The best way is to create a bootable floppy and restart the computer and do it that way.

NVIDIA GeForce BIOS Flash Guide
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
