    Flashing VBIOS

    When flashing my NVIDIA GTX 970M VBIOS with fvbios, it tells me to disable the Nvidia Display Adapter in the device manager. I disable it, but then it doesn't detect it when running fvbios. I enabled it and opened the 3d animation in the nvidia control panel, and it detects it but when pressing y to go forth with the flash it doesn't do anything. Help!

    I have only used NVFLASH. It worked.

    (It also required that the display adapter be disabled in Device Manager.)

    As you're working with a 970m, I suppose that it's in a laptop rather than the desktop that you list in your specs. I wonder whether it has dual graphics, and whether that adds additional complexity.

    I would only do this if really essential since you can brick your GPU.

    ... and bricking the graphics in a laptop may be harder to fix than in a desktop.

    Newer versions of NVFlash auto disable the CARD for you now .........

    I have not done this on a mobile Chip though......
