    Hi there!
    So, I founded the programs for flashing, made the boot disk and made a
    backup of the original ROM.. and now comes problems.
    On this page http://whitebunny.demon.nl/hardware/chipset_nvidia.html I
    founded the BIOS for my card. It is an ASUS AGP-V3800M with nVidia
    RIVA TNT2 Model 64/64Pro chip with 32MB.......(so long :)))
    and the bios for my card would be what???
    I can download the BIOS for m64 and m64pro....
    and please if you can, download it also (both) and tell me which of
    them I should use? In the downloaded files I have more then 4 ROMs.
    Which of them is the correct one?

    hi again...
    so I took a shot and flashed my card with a BIOS I found on this site
    http://www.x86-secret.com/articles/nvbios.htm#TnT2 (TNT2M64 without
    TV-out, bios 3,05.....)
    I went in DOS, wrote nvflash -f name-of-bios.rom and.... wtf?!?!?
    it gave me this:

    bla bla bla.......
    file opened succesfully
    bla bla bla.......
    Warning: ROM file Subsystem ID (0000.0000) doesn't match chip
    PCI Subsystem ID (1043.0201)
    Error: PCI Subsystem mismatch

    Why this happened?
    Then I flashed the card with original BIOS and it is OK now...
    Can anyone help me? Please?


    P.S.- The BIOS I downloaded is only 38Kb large, and the original is

  6. Yep... I did the same... I have the same card... but when I flashed it... I
    got a 16Mb Card! So reflashed to get everything back in order...

    If I find it, be sure I will let you know.... but the problem is that
    all of the BIOS I downloaded the nvflash after can't open or gives
    that message. And I tried opening that BIOSes with BIOS Editor and
    they workedn fine... so wtf???!?! :))

    why are you trying to flash the rom on your video card?

  9. The old dangerous boredom...

    Seeing if I can sqeeze any thing more out of the card... also I read that
    Rivatuner, as excellent as it is, can shorten the card's life as opposed to
    a BIOS overclock right from the start...

  10. I also think, Papcina, that if the size of the new BIOS is different... i.e.
    38K as opposed to the 64K that's on the card, the nvflash will warn anyhow,
    whether it's a good .rom or not...

    I too have 4 samples...


    The more one knows, the more confused...

    Over clocking is over clocking. It doesn't matter what you use to do
    it with.

    yes, I founded on the net an web page with only one ROM but it is also
    and less then 50K... I will try all of them today or tomorrow to se if
    any of them is good... by the way, you have the ASUS TNT2 or other?

    Hi, I have an ASUS TNT2 bla bla bla....
    what would be if I flash the card with an BIOS which is from an
    Gainward or other manufacturer but with the same chip?
    And can you open the original ROM with the Ray Adams BIOS editor? I
    can't, it says me that it has an old unsupported block.
    Anyway, I tried all five BIOS I had and every time I received the
    message that the .rom file couldn't be opened.....
    do you have any suggestion?

    that after gave you 16MB)?
