There's no detail of your card, so here goes:

 

  • If this card has dual-BIOS, simply flip to backup BIOS then boot up. Copy the backup BIOS then flash it to the first BIOS.

 

  • If this card has no BIOS switch, there's 50-50 chance to fix it by force/blind flashing.

 

 

 

  • If all above failed. You have bricked the card.

Okay, don't panic. Find yourself a 2nd card to use as a display and then flash your 6950.

ok i got the old video card i used to use. i placed it in the slot where the HIS 6950 was so now my pc can boot and moved the HIS 6950 to my 2nd slot. so now my 4890 is in my first slot but i dont wanna flash it by accident. when i tried to load the 6950 bios onto the card it failed like it did when i tried to flash it to the 6970 earlier. so i had to do it through Command prompt.

This is very simple. Just make a usb boot drive and put atiflash on it. You will flash it in dos before the computer ever tries to go in to windows. DONE.
