Hello,

Can a virus effect the video bios? I have an issue whereby my display driver is not recognized after a reformat (after a virus).

  1. Already try the latest driver?

    Format=All clean even from virus.

    I must add that I have XP Pro OS.

    Core 2 Duo E6700, ASUS P5N-E-SLI, 2GB Corsair DDR2 PC6400, Nvidia 8800GTX, Coolermaster 650W PSU and Case, Audigy 2ZS Platinum, 5.1 Z-640, XP Pro, 22" CHIMEI LCD
  3. I have never heard of a case where virus has affected a GPU BIOS.
  4. I never knew there even was a GPU bios but regardless even after a reformat of the os, i cannot get the display driver to stick. Any ideas anyone specific to this VC?
  5. Like i said before, try different driver, the latest driver or even the old one...
  6. We did that right off. Tried old drivers and latest.
