If you are trying to flash your BIOS from a DOS window within WinXP, it won't work. You have to boot your PC from a boot disk and then flash the BIOS.

You CAN NOT do the flash in a DOS window if you boot to WinXP. You will need to boot to DOS, Win95 or Win98. Ues a boot disk and then do the flash.
If you don't have a boot disk you can get and OS boot disk you want from here.

Good luck.

Where did you get your flash utility and BIOS file?
You might have an older flash utility.
To be sure, goto Stanto's site and get what you need there.

Don't forget to read the FAQ section first because most questions are answered there.

"i want to update to bios1.18 with dvi enable"
Cannot do that. 1.18 bios is only for the AGP cards.

"when i used flash program, it can't identify my v5's eprom."
Most likely because u r using an AGP bios update on a pci card


AFAIK only the mac V5 had a DVI output......which u could do a bios flash to work on pc.

in the page http://welcome.to/3dfxbios it tell how to update your bios if you don´t undertand it.

1º you have a boot disk (Windows 98 SE).

2º you have a flash utility "dos4gw.exe" & the Bios file in other disk.

3º Reboot & insert the boot disk, choose" no cd compatibility" & wait to it finish

4º copy the flash utility & the bios file to Ramdisk,

5º execute the bios utility & flash your bios , wait about 20-30 seconts to finish.

6º reboot.

I believe that that is everything
