I flashed my BFG 7800 GTX the second day I owned it with a different vendor's BIOS and everything's okay but I'd still like to have the stock BFG 7800 GTX BIOS that comes on this card. (yes, I forgot to back up the original BIOS. thus this is the reason why I'm hoping to find someone who did back their's up.)

hopefully someone will help me out.

Hi, I have a new BFG 7800 GTX PCI-E. I will be opening it up tomorrow for the first time. If you need a copy of the bios tell me what to do and i'll send it over to you.

P.S. Why did you flash this card with a different bios? What was the purpose / advantage of doing so? Just curious.

I flashed it because I didnt want to have to mess with manually O/Cing it. I just upped the speeds to where I wanted the card to run w/o having to mess with stuff like Coolbits.

anyhow... I'm going to send you a PM with my email address. I would really appreciate the stock BIOS. :)

Bios flashing activities with 6xxx and 7xxx cards are as follows,

Flash the bios in DOS using nvflash.exe v5.13

nvflash -r (removes any protection)

nvflash -b ORIGBIOS.ROM (saves original bios)

nvflash -4 -5 -6 BIOSNAME.ROM (flash new bios file)

However because of DOS filename restrictions, "ORIGBIOS.ROM" and "BIOSNAME.ROM" must have no more than 8 char's in first part of filename and no more than 3 char's in extender part, otherwise DOS will not recognise the command.

And note; the -4 -5 -6 command switches will force a flash regardless of any ID mismatches, so always just select to continue.

But obviously make sure you ONLY flash a AGP type card with a supporting AGP bios, and a PCI-E type card with a supporting PCI-E bios !!!!!

Below is the link for the BFG supplied bios update utility and it includes the .25 bios. The 2nd link is the thread it came from.
