do you have your original bios on your flash drive aswell?
if so select your second bios on the card,start your pc wait till you see your bios screen and flip the switch to the 1st bios again and press F8 to select boot device,and boot from your flash drive with default bios etc

You didn't backup your original first? doh.gif

1) Load into Windows with the working BIOS. Get that BIOS file via GPUz and save it.
2) Turn computer off, and flip the BIOS switch over to the dead BIOS (assuming its the one that can be written to obviously).
3) Boot into a bootable USB drive with the BIOS file and the DOS flashing utility on it, and flash the original BIOS back over.
4) Reboot.

I haven't used the DOS flash utility in a while, so I don't remember its name. It's either ATI Flash or ATI Win Flash (probably not Win Flash). Just look up the proper flags to use with it.

You need to use the DOS utility, not the Windows one.
