    Why won't it work? Why won't it show video?

    Should it work?

    Can't you just blind flash it?

    I am not sure that I can. I already tried, but there is no way that it even flashes. I type everything bit by bit, but then it reboots and nothing happens. Also, I don't know how far the system goes as far as booting. I don't know if it is even booting up past startup.
    Add more detail on what you mean and how to do it properly.

    I moved this thread to the M15x forum. If you'd like it back in the Gaming forum, PM me and I'll move it back.

    I just tried a blind flash. Didn't work. I don't know if the card is even bootable, meaning that I don't know if it is going to boot. I waited a sufficient amount of seconds to start typing commands in, but they didn't seem to have any effect.

    How long does the BIOS take to flash once the command is typed in and entered?
