Card : GEFORCE 6800 ULTRA/GT/6800

ManuF. : All

Problem : Freeze / Crashs

The 6800 serie knows some freezs and crashes issues.

EDIT : Problem can be due to FAST WRITE is in ENABLE MODE
You have to disable it completely => so maybe you can o/c more and you ll crash less..

I found on some forums that the bios is the cause.


So look how to change your 6800/GT/Ultra bios :

Hum, did you try to use RivaTuner (ftp://213.186.44.19/168484511/pub/utilitaire/RivaTuner20RC15.zip) or powerStrip (ftp://213.186.44.19/168484511/pub/utilitaire/pstrip-i.exe) .
And did you try to add yourself, custom resolutions? (=> in forceware panel)

For anyone that wants or needs it, here is the BFG 6800 U OC bios.

BFG 6800 Ultra OC bios (http://home.comcast.net/~kahloq/BFGULTRA.ROM)

For anyone trying to compile a listing of the different brand bios's, its generally a good idea to list those who supplied which bios. This is in case there is a corrupted bios rom in your list and the provider can go back and make a new one. It also gives some recognition to those that did provide them.

Thanks much for the BIOS Kahloq! Does anyone know if you must use (or if its better?) to use the same brand of BIOS? For example, I have a BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC, So, should I use the BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra BIOS? I tried Leadtek and had many problems.

I dont know. If it were me, I wouldnt flash a gt to ultra bios anyhow. But, I suppose since they be same brand, you might get a stable flash. Just make sure you have a backup rom that works. You will need to use nvflash442.

Yes I know there have been a few threads about this, but those topic thread's name was usually non descript and not listing it was about bios's and would get lost in the depths of the forums.
I am making this thread to list ALL bios's from whatever board maker so ppl can try different bios if they have problems. This thread is intended to keep a list of different bios in a concise thread so ppl dont have to go searching around several pages looking. Mods, this probably should be a thread to sticky for the time being.

If you have a bios rom, please list it here and download url so we can compile as complete a list as possible. I will update this initial post each time to list that bios(with name of person that supplied it).
