REQUEST: MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G original bios
« on: 03-December-14, 20:05:27 »

My S/N is 602-V316-03SB1409075224 I would like to request the original vBIOS that my card came with.
My card had problems with the fans randomly spinning and so I updated to the appropriate bios which was NV316MH.182 and that fixed the problem. However I have noticed since updating that the noise from the card has increased when playing games and today whenever starting any game I get an instant crash and my whole system resets, this happens now even when I'm not playing a game and my computer has been randomly restarting and I know it's a problem with the GPU.

I am worried that it is most likely that the GPU is failing but I would like to try flashing the card to its original stock vBIOS and seeing if that fixes anything. Even if you don't believe the vBIOS is the problem, I would still very much like to have the stock vBIOS for my card. Thanks!
I'm on windows 8.1 64 bit.

which version was this?

Board: Asus Z87I-Pro
Bios: Version 1003
VGA:   MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
PSU:   Silverstone SST-ST65F-G Strider 650W Full Modular Power Supply single +12V rail with 54A
Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor

HDD: Samsung 840 Series 250GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive
COOLER: cooler master hyper 212 evo

OS: Windows 8.1 64 bit

S/N for the GPU is 602-V316-03SB1409075224  current bios version is 84.04.2F.00.F1 which was downloaded from https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=184740.0  and I used  NV316MH.182
I don't know what the name of the vBIOS I updated from was, but it was the stock version that came with the card so most likely the vBIOS before the one I'm currently using which was downloaded to fix the fans randomly spinning.

I also have a feeling that the card is most likely just dead, but I will try this out. If I wish to RMA the card, must I restore it to it's original vBIOS? If so I don't see why I'd have to do that since MSI live updater lets you download the latest vBIOS and update your card.

Thank you. I tried the updated BIOS and I still have instant system restarts when entering any game, so I've decided I'll submit an RMA request to scan.co.uk when  I am free (maybe in like two weeks). If I do the RMA through scan are you sure the updated vBIOS won't affect the RMA process?

yes it doesn't matter, they are for your video card

but you must be sure that issue is in the card itself and not in something else

best test the card in another computer

Thanks. I know it's going to be a pain figuring out what the real issue is, I heard it could potentially be the PSU? I will try testing the card in another computer, do you have any other troubleshooting advice?

Yes could be PSU, can be other things which are not related to the video card

testing the card in another computer would be faster and clear way to isolate the issue
after we know the results then we can trouble shoot it further
