Did I brick my GTX 1080ti?

Got it working again. Crisis aworded.

 

Reinstalled Windows and everything seems to be working. Did a couple of minutes in "Tomb Raider" and it works without glitches. (Kinda impressed by the card, didn't start the fans anytime during the short test)
 

 

Thanks to everyone who took time to help.

Lession leaned, don't touch a GPU bios again.

 

 

Don't know what happened, but it seems somehow the Gigabyte way of flashing the bios, .exe file downloaded from the cards support site on gigabyte.com did f. up Windows somehow.

I tried to update the bios on my Gigabyte Aorus 1080TI Extreme Edition yesterday.

Downloaded the F4 bios their website, and ran the exe files. It went through what it needed, and I got the "It was a success" message, and rebooted as it wanted to.

After that, a few seconds after Windows loads, (I see the desktop), it stops and reboots.

It runs fine in Windows Safe mode.

 

Anybody know what I can do to fix it?

Why did you try to update the bios of your card...?

Exactly, if it runs fine in safemode it's most likely a driver issue.

It doesn't use the GPU core in Safemode, I had a 770 that would boot fine in Safemode but would crash/artifact in Windows.  While it uses the GPU's outputs it runs all graphical tasks on the processor

Yup me too.... I had the GTX 770 that was doing weird things.... Both fans worked but you wouldn't think they were because one fan would go haywire at 100% and then the other fan would just spin normally. I booted into safe mode to see what would happen and nothing happened. A lot of instructions aren't being pushed into the GPU in safe mode.

 

I guess the thermal controller was broke because temps were fine but the card was not performing as well when I first got it 8 months prior. It was just slowly dying and Zotac took it back right away with no issues and handed me the GTX 970.

 

Not sure this is bricked but maybe you should try to flash it again in safe mode if possible.

Tried that. But just the same with the one from Gigabyte.

 

But are going to try it the hard way, with a DOS startup, and NVflash. Found a few instructions online.

If that don't work, I'll see if I can get some help localy, before trying the hardest way, and resetting it on the card.

Found some instructions on other cards that one can short a couple of pins, like on the motherboards, BUT that will take some serious research to find the right ones,

if it's at all possible on this card.

Thanks.

 

I was a little confused about the techpowerup, since it has more of the same one.

 

But now I can test a few different ones.

Question: All the guides I find on how to do the DOS flash, says to use another graphics card. Is this so one can use the computer to get the things set up, or is it needed to run the DOS enviroment?

 

Since my card runs, and I have another computer to fix the boot drive ect, Do I need to take the step of adding another card?

I have a AMD card I can use, so it won't confuse it with another Nvidia card, but if it's really not needed, I could jump over that step.

It's just to run the DOS environment. Make sure to set the card number to 1 instead of 0 in the line, as using 0 would select the card currently being used as a display (most of the time, anyway. There's a command to figure out which number is which card, but I cannot remember it).

In the command used in the DOS environment to flash the card, you see how there's a 0? You might need to change that to a 1. You cannot set the value that the card uses, so you'll have to run the command to figure out which card is what.

load your old bios onto it. if you didnt save.. your fucked and you kinda brought it upon yourself. always save the bios. you could try @kronickillers bios too
i doubt drivers are the issue

aparently this card has dual bios

 

Gigabyte is including a vast array of monitor outputs: 1x DVI, 3x DisplayPort, and 3x HDMI. These outputs are more than the NVIDIA GPU can support, so Gigabyte lets you switch between DVI and two additional HDMI ports (one HDMI is always active). An automated switching mechanism handles everything, but requires a reboot; during startup, the connected monitors are checked and the appropriate BIOS is selected. This could also serve as remedy during a failed BIOS flash - connect a different monitor to make the card select the second BIOS, so you can at least use the system. Flashing back isn't possible, though, because I'm not aware of any way to switch the BIOS before initiating the flashing process while the system is running.

I think you have to dumb it down a little bit for me. I'm unfamiliar with the dos enviroment, so I don't know how to change it.

 

I've run the nvflash and it says it's been changed, but still it won't work. It could be because of the dual bios on the Card?

 

EDIT: Found where it says "0" now, but not how to change it to "1"

Are you typing a command similar to 'nvflash.exe -f -p 0 bios_name.rom'?
