    I find it odd that you've been a member for so long yet have only this one post....

    Anyway, are you still trying to do this? I can give it a shot.

    I have attached IQY0210A.zip, which contains what I believe are the two NVIDIA vBIOS files that were in the BIOS you uploaded.

    Out of curiosity, may I ask what you wish to use these for?

    Actually, you needn't do anything very complicated :)

    IIRC, I simply used andyp's PhoenixTool to dump the BIOS, and then used grep to search the extracted files for the string "vBIOS".

    If you need help, just ask.
