Hrmmm.... I dunno.... I kinda stumped now.... All I can say is that people whom get that type of screen artifacts usually have their memory clock/allocation high.... What you might wanna do is bring down the clock speeds down (where are they at for you).... I might wanna get an actual FX 3700 bios and try bringing the clock speeds down to that, the quadros tend to be underclocked in comparision to the geforce..... If not.... I am actually gonna try another mod and its able to draw the over lay windows I might let go of my Zotac 1GB working as FX 3700 for a bit of monies (only if the next mod works, if not I am gonna hold on to it).
Hi Aquamac First of all thanks for all your efforts...
I have a 1GB Zotac Geforce 9800GT with G92 65nm GPU, so I think it's identical to 8800GT in every-way, I spent all my day trying to mod my 9800GT to Q3700, and at the end I flashed my bios with your 1GB Q3700 ROM (with nvflash for windows, I edited the clockrates in Nibitor and made them as my original bios rom, and also made the Board ID as the original), and the result was frightening, no output from vga after restart! After that I recover to the original rom just by using shortcuts and typing in windows (without any screen!), and luckily everything came back the way it was. Now I'm wondering what was the problem with my flashing? Is it because of my graphic card or something's wrong with my modified rom?
I have attached the original and my edited version of your rom in a single zip file, I'll really appreciate it if you could see them and help me with this, I really need the Quadro extra features for my 3dsmax works.
I also tried to edit my original rom Device and Vendor ID to Q3700 and Nvidia but after flashing it keeps saying it is a 9800GT, I know I should edit the ID somewhere in softstraps for this problem to be solved, but I don't know how.
i used your modified rom for the 3700 to one of my 9800gts and worked properly...the system recognizes it as a quadro fx 3700....the only problem is tha autocad architecture performance driver will not recoognize it as a quadro board....if anyone knows any solutions....you are welcome!! thanks!
Do you mean Mac OS? I'm on a PC, just running Win7 64 bit. I haven't tried in 32 bit, don't currently have a 32bit OS installed.
Removed drivers with drivercleanerpro but alas still the same results. Safe mode works, and shows a driver installed, currently on 182 release drivers, which simply give a "no signal" on my monitor, after the windows loading bar.
I have same video (Palit 8800GT 1Gb) and tried your bios, what you made for jimbo. I tried in w7x64, w7x32, vista_x64 but still same result as had jimbo. Other bios i tried give me artifacts... any new idea? maybe i should get another 8800gt?
