    Default G60Jx - Geforce 360m Problem

    I will write step by step all attempts to fix video card problem.

    1. 2 month ago colored lines and dots appeared on screen. The issue was with videocard. Also A long time ago HDMI port stopped working.
    2. I disassembled laptop and baked VC in oven. For a week lines and dots disappeared. then it started again and day after annoying lines grew in amount. And I baked it to death . Laptop did not boot.
    3. Before I googled for VC to buy new one. And I was wrong in searching by model, not by part number. I found new VC on ebay and ordered.
    4. When I received card and it was in factory packed antistatic package with no signed of external damage.
    5. I installed it. And here is new problems happened:
    a. Screen does not switch on (I checked many times if cables are plugged in and I have not damaged any cable. I have experience in dissembling laptops)
    b. cooler's fan spins as fast as it can.

    6. Laptop boots, HDMI and VGA work. But when I connect to TV via HDMI and run e.g. firefox nvlddmkm.sys stops responding and after 5-10 balloon messages BSOD with error nvlddmkm.sys 0x00000116
    7. I updated laptop BIOS to 208. reinstall and remove nvidia drivers. No changes, still the same. Also checked cpu and gpu temperature and it is 32-34C and 37-42 respectively
    8. I contacted Asus support and they cannot help me.

    Now my suspicion is VBIOS. my VBIOS version is 70.15.39.00.04.0N390200.01

    Q1. What is the tool used to backup and restore vbios?
    Q2. To G60Jx owners. Could you backup and share you vbios version if it is differs from mine?

    thanks in advance!

    Was the 360M you bought originally for Asus? And it's nvflash for backing up the vbios. You might want to also link where you bought the card from.

    Edit: G60JX's BIOS contains 2 vbios, 10DE:0CB1 and 10DE:0CA9, however the Device ID in the 10DE:0CA9 is still 0CB1. And both are for GTS 360M. Both VBIOS version are 70.15.39.00.04. And there's nothing after.04.

    Can you please post the full hardware ID of your card? It's in the device manager, not the info showed in GPU-Z. Just making sure the card was originally made by ASUS.

    Ok the card you bought is originally made by Asus(1043) and the same subsystem (203C) that's shown in the G60JX official BIOS release. Since the Vbios version is slightly different. You might want to download nvflash and backup the original vbios (for flashing it back to return the card if it doesn't work) then try and flash this vbios extracted from the official K43SM BIOS: 10de0cb1.zip

    Flashing is best carried out under Dos mode. If you don't know how to flash a vbios, follow this guide: Guide to Video BIOS flashing | techPowerUp

    Also try to use the latest version of nvflash like 5.117 for Dos. And remember always back up the original vbios before flashing.

    You can use nvflash -b filename.rom to back up and nvflash filename.rom to flash.

    hackness,
    But K43SM has geforce GT 630M. and is it compatable with GTS 360M?

    Possible but I wouldn't try that, and 630M is slower than a 360M.

    Can you try nvflash --list and see if it sees your card? Also try nvflash -i0 -b filename.rom

    I tried and it does not work.
    can the problem be in my version of DOS? I use DOS in Hiren's BootCD on USB stick.

    Actually not, I did some researches based on Asus 350M and Asus 360M and they were facing the same problem, that means the VBIOS is integrated into the BIOS. Which means it may have already been flashed by the ASUS G60JX's official BIOS and can only be flashed through BIOS. Also the vbios I gave you was directly extracted from the G60JX BIOS 211.

    However you can still try older nvflash like 5.91 or 5.95, but I doubt it'll work.

    Since it's already been flashed when you flashed G60JX bios 208, the card still isn't working (As if you have already tried reassigning the main display in nvidia control panel), I suspect the card was defected since the start.
