help flash my gtx 280 because clocking down
 
hi guys i am having problems with gtx 280 it keepd cloccking down to 400mhz/low power mode from 602mhz and i just can not get it to go back up it is not a heat issue as my temps are 38 idle and 50-70 while gaming depending on what i am playing it very really reaches 70 my fan is set to auto i have tried to force high 3d mode via riva tuna but it will not do it i have tried everything and its just not happening i have had enough so i think its time to flash i kno its risky but if it dies it dies.. i have flashe a 9800gtx before and it all went fine but i am having problems this time i have tried a few versions of nvflash now even the latest 5.88 all come with the same result ..

error firmware image must have a rom or nvr extension. and a little beep from the computer..

i have tried 2 bios files that read in nbitor ok with the green light and they are rom files so what is going wrong please held
i am in dos mode when trying this using these commands
nvflash -4 -5 -6 bios.rom
nvflash -f bios.rom

I have exact the same problem with my EVGA 260/216.
Downclocks from 626MHz to 400MHz and stays there until I reboot. It doesn't happen every time I play games tho. BIOS version is 62.00.1A.00.19

go to the NVCP and then 3d settings, look for the power management tab and select "Prefer Max Performance"

my 260 used to downclock while gaming before i set it to "Prefer Max Performance" and the bonus is that it will still drop clocks in 2d mode :)

Prefer Max Performance didn't help but removing and cleaning drivers with the DriverSweeper from the safe mode works for now. Also, I've reinstalled 195.62 drivers from the safe mode.

Update your drivers

I have had the same issue with my 285 dropping down to 2d clocks due to a bug in the drivers, I think the newest ones fixed that

I have tried all of the above and it still happens now and then. It has nothing to do with temps which remain below 65 in my rig. I wish nVidia would introduce the option of disabling power saving.
