    8800GT - How do i enter and upgrade the bios

    Hi,

    I want to get into the bios of my nVidia 8800GT to adjust the fan (because it is running at 90C on full load) and also upgrade the bios, but i havent got a clue how to do it.

    Anyone know how i can do it?

    If not can anyone tell me how to do it using rivatuner?

    cheers

    dan

    I tried doing this a while back, but the fan ran at a constant 100% (so said the monitor). However, right-clicking the RivaTuner icon, I can manually pick one of the 5 speeds I set-up, but it doesn't adjust automatically according to temperature (and I did double and triple-check things...everything looks right). So now I just set it to 30 or 40% when on the desktop, and set it to 100% when I start gaming (its not like its that much louder. lol). *shrug* Still, if anyone else has had this happen, I'd liek to fix it.
