Default Re: EVGA 680i P31 bios update

I'm having trouble running this update. I try to run it from a CD at bootup but when I hit "Y" it tells me that it's a bad command or file name. Anyone know what I may be doing wrong?

I even tried hitting "N" and it still wouldn't respond to it. My bios was set to default before attempting by the way.

I would imagine so... It booted up and gave me the menu for the update. It told me to "wait!!" and then gave me the a: prompt with the option of selecting "Y" or "N". I figured that maybe my CD drive wasn't assigned the A prompt so I tried them all up until I.

It looks like the mysterious FSB overclocking holes are gone, or at least diminished. I was running a 400MHz FSB. Bumped it up to 450MHz and the system has remained stable. Before it would error out pretty much right away while dualing Prime95.

That's probably true. I'm back to 400MHz FSB. 450MHz appeared stable in most things, but Age of Mythology would get a "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." warning and then crash within 5 to 30 seconds at the menu screen. Going back to 400MHz fixed this.

Did Nvidia make this BIOS or EVGA, cause XFX has a Nvidia file and a XFX file...

MSI tells the latest BIOS they received from Nvidia is P30 and this is the latest one
