Acer 9920 GFX change
Sorry to make a new thread about this subject,
Im changing the broken nvidia 8600 m to nvidia 9300
Wholesale 100% bland new and origina NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS(G98 630 U2)DDR2 256M 64Bit MXMII laptop VGA card/graphics
ATM only external display
im not sure if a vbios i neccessary og just a common bios, so pls help me find out
So looked for a vbios update.
i was able to find a file called 9300.rom
But i havent managed to find a complete working guide to update my vbios
How far i made it?
I downloaded the 9300.rom from the forum
i followed this guide Guide to Video BIOS flashing | techPowerUp for updating,
made a bootable usb
downloaded th nvflash utility but it will not run say something about a missing zip file.. sucks
aswell the guide describes that update will come from a bin file, my file is a rom file?
Hope some one can help me

Read the MXM BIOS modding thread for bringing your 9300 to life.
The 9300.rom file likely won't work, a special VBIOS for the 9920G (adapted from the G98-730-U2 VBIOS) can be found in the MXM BIOS mod thread. You will also need to install a modified SBIOS.
(In fact, installing the SBIOS alone will bring your screen to life, but with garbled colors that you can then fix with the VBIOS.)Acer Aspire 5720ZG "Maximum Overdrive": CPU: T9300 | VGA: GT 230M, 1GB DDR3 (MXM-II, taken from a Toshiba A500) | RAM: 4GB | Display: 1920x1200 "LP154WU1-TLC1" | BIOS: V1.45 "Black edition V4.0"
