Title: Flashed gx640 vbios or did i?
Post by: crazywolf_00 on 19-January-11, 20:01:05
Hey just now i tried flashing my vbios on my gx640 using the MSI forum tool.

It completed without any errors and all that and it did say it was successful but it completed so fast i almost cant believe it.

So anyone on here got the latest vbios installed or know the hardware id for it?

Currently i got PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68A1&SUBSYS_10611462&REV_00 but as there isnt a readme file or anything included in the downloads im not sure if it realy is the latest one?

Stuck, use MSI Drivers.
Newer doesn't means better.
The ATI drivers also may cannot be installed.
Or to cause some unknown side issues.
So best stick to tested MSI drivers.
