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).

I have never heard of a case where virus has affected a GPU BIOS.

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?
