After changing video to 8600GS I can't upgrade bios

Postby SirKhan » Sat Jan 10, 2009 1:46 pm

Since I changed the video card from my broken ATI X1800 to a new Nvidia 8600GS I cannot upgrade the bios from 1.15 to 1.25 which would be great because it has some additional support in Vista/Windows7. I tried everything to force the upgrade but WinPhlash, DOS flash and pretty much every flasher I tried says "This BIOS is not for this model". I tried AC plugged in, out, battery in, out, every combination but no go. I strongly believe this is because I changed the video card to a new one.
Problem is I have installed with 1.5 hours work a super cooling mod and now my laptop runs ~46°C when idling in Windows and I REALLY don't want to start over with that... sad.gif
Please help... thanks!

you cant because all buioses contains a vga bios for your vga which u changed to 8600M gs.
So you need someone to mkae for you moded bios. merge the new motherboard etc part with your vga bios part.

Ask the service who makes the vga upgrade.

Good luck
