Nvidia flashing is a dangerous and tricky thing.

NVFlash tries hard to keep you from buggering card and so without you asking to, it will transfer various board settings (like device id and some RAM clocks) from original ROM into your new one.

This can be disastrous when your are actually INTENDING to change those very things.

This behavior is meant to keep RMAs down over at Newegg, but can cause you all sorts of heartache when working on Nvidia cards.

The usual answer is to erase the EERPOM between flashes.

The documented way to do this is to run "--eraseeeprom" as a command. A lot of typing.

Much easier to use the undocumented "-9" which does same thing.

You're welcome.

(BTW, all of this can be done in OSX via Terminal on pre- Fermi cards)
