[Tutorial] ATIWinFlash - How to flash the BIOS of your ATI Cards - Page 9

post #81 of 214
Guys

I recently bought a Gigabyte R9 280X Windorce.

BIOS version is F2, I downloaded Gigabyte OC GURU and Gigabyte @BIOS as instructed, downloaded the new BIOS, F3, with the program, and flashed it with the @BIOS program.

It said it was successful and asked me to reboot, the card was non responsive after that.

Then I remember these cards comes with 2 BIOS, and I saw it was selected at number "2"... Updates does not work for number "2" BIOS?

I switched to BIOS "1" so the card is working. What do I do now? Did I ruin my number "2" BIOS? Can it be fixed? Should have worked or only BIOS 1 can be updated?

And that rom has a GOP partition, makes me sad that Sapphire still haven't gotten around to it. mad.gif
I tried installing the bios both with the .F62 and renaming it to .ROM But either way everytime i install the bios it makes windows unbootable frown.gif idno if i used the wrong bios or what.
Got a Gigabyte 7970 3gb GHZ edition.

Basically you need a bootable DOS USB key with your card's original BIOS in it and the ATIFlash program as well. You will use your good card to boot up your PC, with the bricked card in a secondary PCIe slot (I'm assuming you have a Crossfire capable board or at least one with multiple 16x slots). Boot from the USB and run ATIFlash:

* atiflash -i #view all available adapters, both cards should show up here listed by a number, even the bricked one

* atiflash -p 1 bios.rom #replace "1" with the number of your bricked adapter and "bios.rom" with the name of your BIOS file

* reboot when it is done
Guide on BIOS flashing

VBE7 (read through the thread to familiarize yourself with the program first)

It's pretty easy. Just make sure to back up your original BIOS first (use ATIFlash, not gpuz), make sure you have a failsafe in case you brick your card, and don't go crazy with your modifications. I already flashed my card and experienced no issues.


Finally I idid it, thank you for help.

Hi guys,

I´ve got a question.

For now Ive got in MSI afterburner values: Coreclock 1170mhz , Memory clock 1570 Mhz, but I cannot change voltage above 1.1188 V.

The core is unstable after 1 hour playing games. It caused small artifacts.

Any ideas please.

Hello everyone, I'm new to flashing vBios and have followed this guide to flash my 7970 dc2 card. I've started but it still showing the progress window and probably 5-10mins have passed now. How long does it normally take ? Or have I bricked my card now?

Thanks

It normally does not take that long. Most I have experienced is 5 min. or so, and it was because the process hanged (had to alt-tab a few times to get it to respond again). This is why you flash from DOS. I really hope you saved your original BIOS and have a bootable USB key with atiflash in it... and a spare video card. You can try closing the window and pray 5 hail Mary's and cross your toe fingers after you reboot.

My bad, did not start as administrator hence it gave a pop (which was behind hundreds of other windows) stating that. Redone and worked fine with no issues using command prompt, I agree bootable DOS is better (only way I do it for my motherboard bios) but just got a big lazy rolleyes.gif

hi guys i own a r7870 hawk and i'm thinking about overclocking it, did some attempts and didn't had much problems about it, anyway.. i was wondering what's the point of flashing the bios of the vga and i'm having a hard time to know it haha could anybody explain the reason to do it so?

would like to off-topic a bit, when i was OCing the 7870 i got blue screen sometimes, every time i reseted and restarted the process of OC, no problem about that, right? :|

thx from brazil huehue

Personally, I flash a video card to set core/mem frequencies and not have to mess with software to do it, software that can be buggy or cause issues with your drivers (or to OC higher than what software normally allows). And also so I can carry over my OC to Linux.

To get past the bios voltage limit, which most cards have. My 7970 has a limit of 1.256v and can't go over it unless i modify my bios. My overclock is shown in my sig rig.
