You have to disable the flash write protect feature in the BIOS. After you're done with the FLASH make sure to enable Flash Write Protection again.

There's something wrong with the board is all. I flashed mine with no problems. This is actually my 2nd board but I really wanted to give it a chance for the pure fact that you really get a ton of options for overclocking straight from the nVidia Control Panel via the desktop. I actually walked into XFX and they were happy to replace it for me as well as test it out with my GeForce 9800GT video card. Now I'm a happy camper. This board is not for everybody. I just know I'm gonna have stuff to play with for the next year. Let me know what ur outcome is on a replacement. Did you ask for another XFX or go another way?
