I have a new MSI Gaming X dual fan 3060Ti with a bad bios that only hashes about 51MH/s on ETH regardless of the OC settings. so I decided to attempt the old MSI Ventus bios flash trick and it worked well.
HIve says “Rom flashing OK, now reboot”. So I reboot the Rig and the GPU now lists as MALFUNCTION with GA-104… in Hive.
OK…I flash to original bios and GPU is fine again.
Now I flash once more with the VENTUS bios except this time I don’t reboot. Launch spreadsheet and boom ! 62MH/s.
Problem seems solved but on the next reboot the GPU shows “MALFUNCTION” again.
I am really hopeless now after 3 days looking for answers.
does anyone have a clue ? Is it a lock bios issue ? It seems nvidia locks their gpus to a specific bios…
Thanks for any help you can provide.
