I'm suprised you are going to have to flash your card's bios, I don't suppose you have another OS running that you could compare ?

It sounds more likely to me that your driver install is being "blocked" by a damaged or inncorect file , which means as was suggested by "bansh" you need to unninstall the driver then run a driver cleaner thoroughly more than once and possibly in safe mode just to make sure all traces are gone before you attempt a new driver install ??
