Help Flashing 6950-6970

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have tried to flash my card 2 times but it both failed.

I have a XFX 2gb radeon 6950 that has NO dual-bios on it. When i try to flash it failed, twice.

I tried doing

atiflash -f -p -0 6970.bin

but it dont work because it say the card adapter number not found or whatever. So i tried using the 0 without the dash like this,

atiflash -f -p 0 6970.bin

and it started to work.


and this is what happens, so after i flash through MSDOS it restarts. After that, my computer starts to start, but there is no display. And it continues to have no display for about 15 seconds until it turns off. After 3-4 seconds of it being off, it turns back on automatically and repeats itself.

I have done exactly what guides say on this forum and other forums. I tried usinf xFX bios and sapphire bios. So, either my card is completely incompatible for the flash, or im just not doing something right.

Not all 6950's will unlock. You might have bricked your card.
There are ways to unbrick it though if you have another GPU.

Yea, i had a spare Geforce to undo it and i was able to restore it back to its original bios. So, this means i wont be able to flash it?

I think there are only a couple of cards that will unlock, other then the reference models. Not sure if there's a list here somewhere of unlockable models but I'm sure if you do a search here for your specific model and unlock you will find something.
