I am not familiar with you card. I am assuming it has only BIOS switch. If it has two switch, make sure your booting up with the switch you flashed. Also, I have read somewhere there is a version of GPU-Z that does not show shaders correctly. So make sure you have the latest version of GPU-Z.
Can you note down the exact sequence you are following when unlocking via command prompt?
