Any bios fix available for r7 260x black screen 4 vendors who are to sucky to fix it?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Have an HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E DLDVI-D+DLDVI-I/DP/HDMI and they have done ZERO bios updates since release, refuse to admit they even know of the problem and refuse to honor the warranty because it was a gift and I'm not the name on the receipt. I see lots of black screen chatter but don't see a clear answer in it, any ideas??

It would probably be a good idea to post the original bios.

That's new when I use their filter it only shows these 2 cards

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=AMD&manufacturer=HIS&model=R7+260X&interface=&memType=&memSize=

But google finds this

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/168944/168944

which seems be a 015.048.000.038.000000 version for a HIS?

Or maybe not??

hmm.. the find compatible bios search thinks it's a match, anyone agree??

Dumping the original bios takes a second. Meanwhile it takes a lot longer me to modify the bios. As long as your PCB is identical and the GDDR5 ICs are the same, it should work. If you're sure that the cards are identical, the you can try: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=8329B08E8413A80E!552&authkey=!AN4witL3OTpwBqg&ithint=file%2czip

If there are differences, then most likely your card stays blank after the flash or at least doesn't work properly.

I don't have the 260x installed right now, so dumping the bios is gonna have to wait a few hours until I can take my comp down..

I would try and unload it and grab something else. The 7790/260x was insanely buggy. I've have a few of them and they all have some sort of issue.

I picked up an Nvidia gtx 760, it's an Nvidia branded card which (fingers crossed) should be less likely to be buggy than 3rd party version. I'm not real sure what the dna is on nvid branded cards, but I assume the are the ones the drivers are written with.
