A BIOS, if one even exists, won't help you. You just have to accept the fact that as nVidia develops drivers for their new chips, the old ones will develop incompatibilities.

Just use the last version that worked for you, and stick with it. It's not going to make a performance difference anyways.
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

I'm using a TNT2-Pro with 30.82 drivers and had no problem installing them .
Maybe your drivers have some installation problems .
De-install your drivers if possible or use detonator destroyer or other utilities to get rid of them .
Please get working drivers before you delete the old ones .
I had mine from www.guru3d.com
