Flash An 8800gt Bios

The 8800GT

Hardware devices installed on your computer--such as the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT graphics card--use a set of instructions called the Basic Input Output System, or BIOS. The BIOS performs tests to make sure the device is working properly when you boot up your system and then tells your computer use the hardware. The original BIOS for the 8800GT has a flaw that causes the card to operate at a much higher temperature than it should. You can replace the card's BIOS with a new version to lower its operating temperature and make its fan work more quietly.


1. Check the manual that came with your 8800GT to see if it is listed as the Standard, SC, KO or SSC version and download the BIOS flashing tool.

2. Click on the download link that corresponds to the version of the 8800GT card you have. Right-click the file when it is finished downloading and choose "Extract here."

3. Open the Windows Start menu and click "Control Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" in Vista or "Add/Remove Programs" in XP.

4. Find and select "NVIDIA Display," and then click "Remove Program."

5. Close the window and restart the computer. After the computer has restarted, navigate to the folder you extracted earlier. Double-click the icon labeled "Update.exe."

6. Press the "Y" key to begin the BIOS flashing process. Restart the computer again when the flashing process is finished.

7. Insert the installation disc that came with the 8800GT graphics card into your computer's disk drive. Follow the installation instructions to re-install the card's driver software.
