    after doing a bit of research, the two cards i have apparently use the same bios anyway, but there is a newer one so i'll have a go at flashing it and tell you how it goes later.. if i still have a pc.. :D

    The latest BIOS I could find for GIGABYTE GeForce GTX480 Super Overclock (I assume that's what you have): ver. 5.95.0.1

    Which versions of BIOS are on your GTX480s?

    P.S. I just remembered a small quirk about nvflash addressing SLI video cards. You need to execute 'nvflash --list' to see the indices, either 0 & 1 or 1 & 2. Then use '--index=0' and '--index=1'. (My GTX260s on GA-P55-UD4P motherboard uses 0 & 1.) After you backup the BIOS, nvflash will display the BIOS version.

    it's not a soc, its the same as the first one just with a funky pcb and cooler
    the latest stock clock ones according to tech power up are
    Nvidia : 100401
    Gigabyte : 100414
    so I'll try both and see what happens

    cant seem to make nvflash do anything, the second i enter any character into the input it brings up help before i can enter anything else

    You can flash gigabyte cards with their own flashing program,it should be on their website,as for nvflash I have no idea,I don't know if winflash flashes NVIDIA cards too,I know it flashes ATI cards

    Use gpu-z to see your bios version,you can even save your current bios your pc so you can flash back if needed

    well, i cant flash the cards
    the gigabyte flasher tells me the bios does not match the card even though they clearly do
    the other one requires iso files, and when i try to build it it tells me i need administrator rights even though i have them and just fails
    don't know if you guys know another program or can sugguest a bios that the gigabyte flasher will accept

    fortunately i found a workaround to the original problem,
    if i install the drivers, set the settings for sli and run a program it works, when i reboot it fails and goes low rez and nv drivers tell me they cant find cards
    so, i was reinstalling drivers, but this is the wrong thing to do
    at this point i rebooted again, and got my normal resolution and the nv panel working again where i can set sli, again
    if i reboot and get the error, ignore it then reboot again it gets stuck in sli mode, and allows me to reboot as i like, which is nearly as good as a fix but if i touch the nv panel it breaks again
    also, if i don't do that and manually set sli on when i want it and turn it off when i turn off the pc i avoid the low rez boots too
    so i can actually 'use' my pc for now

    so, if anyone else has this problem, try that routine for a workaround

    It might just be a driver issue,I would wait till newer ones are released,as for bios some cards won't flash,it depends on what brand

    Thumbs up Re: GA-P55A-UD4 + ultra durable gtx 480 not compatible?

    yah, thanks for the ideas guys i'll consider it closed for now and wait for newer drivers and see if that helps

    the way pc hardware moves i'll have a complete new system in under a year anyway so what the heck

    so-long as it doesn't cripple my pc i'm happy
