essenbe-I just updated my firmwate and tried to update the graphics driver and ended up with nothing but a black screen.Nothing I tried would fix it. Maybe I could have fixed it eventually if I kept trying, but I just restored a Macrium image I had made yesterday. Now I am back up and running fine.It wasn't the firmware update that caused it. I rebooted twice after that update with no problems. I think it was DDU. After uninstalling the old drivers I used DDU to boot into safe mode which it refused to do. Besides, the FW update for the card has nothing to do with Windows or drivers if it did what I think it did, which is a BIOS update to the card. That part went smooth and worked fine.At any rate, Macrium to the rescue again.
ty_ger07I am quite sure that it doesn't modify the VGA BIOS. I believe it updates the firmware on some discrete chip on the card without affecting anything else. That being the case, based on other users' experiences, it should not matter the position of the BIOS switch.
