Windows 7: BSODS while gaming

Pffff.

Slap ma arse and call me Shirley!

It was the VBIOS.

Sorry for wasting anyone's time. When I said I updated the BIOS I meant the MB. I didn't even know there was a BIOS for the f'n card!

All fixed now lads.

I backed up my VBIOS with GPU-Z
I used hpflash1.rar and used win98.rar to create a bootable dos disk
Put the updated flash on it using the 478.rar supplied by Sapphire
Changed the BIOS to boot from USB drive
Ran the flash and hey presto
