    Since the video card no longer functions after a failed
    BIOS upgrade flash, you'll now have to replace the
    video card with a new one.

    There are often ways to flash the VGA BIOS even if the first flash
    failed. You are going to need three things. First, you need a Windows 98
    Bootdisk. Download that from www.bootdisk.com. Second, you are going to
    need the correct BIOS. Try this one:
    http://whitebunny.demon.nl/download?file=vid_bios_nvidia_gf4mx440-8x_4.18.20.42.00.zip
    Finally, you are going to need the flashing utility:
    http://whitebunny.demon.nl/download?file=nvflash_4.46.zip

    OK, here is what you do. Write that Windows 98 Bootdisk to a floppy.
    Now copy nv18b.rom from the BIOS download to the floppy. Now copy
    nvflash.exe and CWSDPMI.EXE from the flash utility download onto the
    floppy. Now on the floppy, find the autoexec.bat file. Right click and
    edit this file to say the following:

    @echo OFF
    CLS
    A:\
    NVFLASH -b backup.rom
    NVFLASH -f nv18b.rom

    Now click File, Save. Now reboot off that floppy and give it about a
    half an hour in your computer. Then come back and remove the floppy and
    press the restart button.

    This whole process is not entirely necessary if you have a second video
    card in the computer that you can see what is going on. If you do have
    a second video card in the computer, you can do everything listed above
    except don't edit the autoexec.bat file. Then just use the ocmmands I
    have listed.

    I hope everyone double checks this post to make sure I have it right
    since I haven't used a floppy (or Windows 98 Bootdisk) in about 3 years.
    Doing this should not cause any further harm to your ocmputer than you
    have already done, so it is safe to do. I just am not sure if the
    autoexec.bat file is needed to load the command prompt or what.
