I tried to flash a different vBIOS to my GTX 680M ES and now have no display. When I try to boot up I get one long beep and two short beeps. I've tried to blind flash but keep getting to those beeps. I tried putting the USB in the eSATA and holding FN+B, but after I see some flashing form the USB stick, I wait 10 minutes, restart, and get the same beeps.

I know it's not the mobo as I can put in my 5870M and the display works fine.

PLEASE HELP!

One long beep and two short beeps usually means a video error has occurred and that the BIOS can not initialize the video to display. From the sound of it you have a BIOS flash error which is usually pretty bad, sometimes meaning it is bricked... Can I ask why you had to flash the BIOS for you GPU? It is usually not recommended and is an at your own risk type of deal.

This had nothing to do with flashing the new 770 BIOS with a 680 chip did it? :p

I am fully aware that the 680M is a mobile chip. I don't fully understand the GPU BIOS flashing process, but I'm sure you can flash both the desktop and mobile chips with a different BIOS.

Do understand that flashing the BIOS is always a potential risk and that I would agree with the previous poster by saying there probably was an error with flashing the BIOS. Sorry about your misfortune.

It ended up being that I had flashed a desktop vBIOS instead of a mobile one! I had a new vBIOS chip put on and flash with the appropriate vBIOS, and now it works like a charm!
