gigabyte 7950 3gb bios update problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a gigabyte 7950 3gb card and my brothers dumb ass just installed a bios upgrade "so he thought" and it was this " Tahiti_PRO_Boost_BIOS_Jul12_2012" I'm pretty sure this wasn't right and was trying to tell him that.

Now I can't open ccc, it will not open at startup and I try to use gigabyte easyboost to change the bios and it doesn't highlight the bios mode to change it.

My question to you guys is this...... Is there any way possible I can flash the right bios back to this card or is it dead?

Thank you and please help as this was not my fault and now i'm paying the price due to him.

So basically I can use a usb drive set to boot from and then re-flash the right bios back to my card?

follow the guide included in that thread carefully. the way i understand it, you should be able to boot by switching to the good bios (small switch on top near front end of card). just before flashing (one of the steps), you need to switch back to the bad bios.

make sure you pick the right bios for your card. call or communicate with the company via their online chat.
