Odd Request: Needed Hercules Geforce 2 MX PCI NON TV out bio

Postposted on Fri Apr 12, 2002 1:03 pm

Yup title says it all.

I'm looking for an original GeForce2 MX bios from a Hercules. Must be PCI card, and must not have TV-out.

I know the Nvidia cards use the same bios for pci/agp cards, but I want to rule out all possibilities.

Yea, it's that goofy PCI card that for some reason thinks it's got a brooktree tvout chip, when in fact, one does not exist on the card.

So, if you have this card, or bios email me or drop me a PM.

Can't the bios just be flashed using the thing on the Hercules website? Does the card not work at all with this bios?

The bios on Hercules web site is for non pci versions of the card. I couldn't find a version for a pci version.

I remember Forge saying something along the lines that the PCI and AGP cards use the same BIOS.
