[$25 Bounty] Radeon 6950 bricked. Help me unbrick it

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am willing to pay $25 via paypal to the person that helps me unbrick my 6950.

I have followed this guide but I get stuck while trying to overwrite the bad bios. http://www.overclock.net/graphics-ca...hics-card.html

The error message is "ERROR 0FL01" and it says that the bios can't be written over.

I've tried everything in this thread:

Following this guide to unbrick i can boot into windows using a second PCI-e card, but I get stuck when i use atiwinflash. the progress appears, gets to about 75% and then exits silently without reflashing the bios. (tried unlocking the rom too).

so sad

Does your 6950 have a bios switch? If it doesn't, I'm not sure why you flashed it in the first place as they don't unlock If it does, flip it to the 2nd position, follow this guide for flashing: http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/107...win-frozr.html - atiwinflash doesn't work all that well on certain cards, thus I would recommend flashing it from DOS (as its significantly safer and you can force a flash)

If you can't do that, then you may want to consider doing a RMA and letting them know that you flashed your bios, most companies are a bit more understanding with high end products then you would think

BTW, in the future you may want to list the exact model of card you have that way we can help you out a little bit further
