  1. I had a problem with a game recently (blue screening and crashes) so i updated my video card BIOS. Not only did this not fix the problem but it started others in games that used to be reliable but have now become nightmares. I bluescreen/ crash to desktop frequently in games i used to be able to play for hours with out any problem, and this problem has only started since I updated my Video card BIOS.

    So my question is how do I revert to previous working BIOS for my video card, and one other problem is I do not know what version of BIOS i was running before-hand, I just upgraded.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You revert by downloading an older version of the BIOS and flashing your video card with that.

    As for not knowing what exact version you had.. Well, you will know better next time and will always save your old BIOS and write down the version before overwriting with new :p
