Hey, this is my first post so I apologize for anything wrong with this post in advance.

I recently bought a new motherboard -- GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 -- but, when I encounter difficulty. I found out that my graphics card made it freeze in the bios start up so, I used my old graphics card. I found out that to get the 660 ti to work on a motherboard with a dual bios, I need to update the bios with a 660 ti related download -- http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N660Ti-PE-2GD5-OC.html#Download -- I already updated all drivers and bios for the motherboard related downloads but, I cannot use the files in windows, the Q-flash in the bios, or load it off a usb drive during boot up.

Hi

 

To update graphic card VGA BIOS, you need to run the update tool either from DOS or Windows. Since you are not able to boot the PC with the MSI card connected, your only chance is to plug it in to another working system and run the BIOS update from it. I don't think there is any other way to do it.

Thanks for the response, I will try it with my friend's help -- using his computer since I would have to switch out the motherboards and re-install the OS just to test this method -- however, I will not be able to test it right away so if anyone else would like to make a suggestion, thank you.
