Question about Albatron 6600LEQ GeForce® 6600LE, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Hey druid I need your expert advice on the experts launge, Topic is issues with comp http://www.fixya.com/ExpertsLoungeThreadView.aspx?thid=580415 Heres the problem: I recently noticed that my 2nd pcie card in sli isnt working anymore. I get no picture from the 2nd card when I try it alone in the pc on both pcie slots, the other card works perfectly on both slots. I suspect the bios on the 2nd card is corrupt, I don't have a speaker on my motherboard so I cant hear if there is a error code for bad vga. the pc doesnt post with the 2nd card. So far I've successfully extracted the bios from the working card. I want to try flashing the 2nd card with the bios, as they both are the same brand and model. I havent been able to get my system to detect the 2nd card at all, in dos when I used nvflash v5 it reports no nvidia cards in the system, possibly becouse its desinged for series 7 and down. In the first post you can see Ive offered to pay for a solution, 5usd. like a premium eh :)

I guess the card is just dead, Ekse. There's no point tying to flash it if its not working or getting detected in the first place!
Had a similar problem with a DDR Ram I had, no burning smell, not heating up, looked perfectly normal, except that it was kaput.
The best suggestion I can give is to try it on another machine with an Express slot. If it doesnt work there either, adios amigo to the card. However, if it works there, there could be an issue with your motherboard, and not the card. (But I suppose you knew this already!) If it does work in the other PC, you could try flashing the BIOS there with the latest version of nvflash..

I did see the post in the lounge, but as this is not really my area of expertise, I didnt bother answering (even for $5 hehe).

My player isn't showing the audiobooks i've transferred onto it from my computer yet when its connected to my computer they show in the audiobook file. It just started to do this, before it would work...


You may need to re-identify your player to your computer.

G'day, and HAPPY NEW YEARS, Mate!


Hey Ed Hey Ed, must be the service manager in us that seeks to improve the quality of answers. You seem to have been going all the same places that I have over the past year, perhaps more vehemently than I;). I have not had the time to contribute to the discussions lately,but soon again will! I Dont know what to make of that guy bluey.... in a desperate hurry to "start earning" looks like. He had my attention even before he started asking questions in the lounge. Looks like a p!sstaker to me. If FixYa STOP paying the BS ****,they will go away. Sadly, I have never heard of an instance where they didnt get paid, even though they have been banned, so back they come again. I guess the public netbashing type outfall of a "non payment", justified or not, is less than desirable for FixYa,so they pay, and the banned BSers come back and go again... and again.... You are a good bloke mate! Don't loose faith, Lauren does hear, and understand and takes notes from the discussions, and what better brains trust to work on the issues, than top gurus at FixYa:). They got the best in the world helping them debug this new and creative way to solve the consumers problems Happy New years mate.

Hi, I wrote my opinion to fixya, telling them that I do not think your ban is a good decision, and that I do not agree. In the past I have sent them three complains about your solutions, but I never asked or suggested any ban or similar measure.

I do not think my complains had influenced the decisions taken by fixya, but just in case I wrote them a message stating that the complains were not minimally suggesting such a measure as a ban.

by the way, if the ban had been determined only by bad solutions (I am sure more experts, including Ekse reported more abuse), then you can ask a reintegration promising them to improve the level of service.

I just posted a response for the Toshiba. If that doesnt help I will assist them to trouble shoot and get the set operating again. That other expert should be banned from here.
