I wanted to give flashing my bios a try since there was a quiet fan bios for my card. Did it standard with nvflash and restarted my computer and had a bunch of artifacting and it wouldn't boot. Switched to my onboard graphics and it looked clear but it blue screened at start up with a VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE.

Update: I was able to boot up when I unplugged the power from the graphics card. I will need to plug it back in at some point to actually reflash the working BIOS on it though. Any suggestions to get past that error so I can flash my bios?

Uninstall all GPU drivers and re-boot.
Re-install onboard GPU drivers only.

That was shaky for a little while. My phone is pretty bad so it was hard to check in here while working on it. I was eventually able to get it running again. I was not aware you could reflash the BIOS while the power was not plugged into the card. I went with the skynet bios and it worked right off the bat thankfully.
