I am not sure about the X1950pro black screen problem+bios fix but I will tell you working with a x800pro+and 9500pro that atiwinflash is terrible to use. Try finding the flashing program that works from command prompt in your bios.

You could try to find Flashrom. I use that to flash my Radeon 9200SE.
How to:
1. Put the Flashrom.exe and the BIOS file into the floppy
2. Make sure floppy is on the drive and it boot first
3. After enter DOS mode, enter this line below:
flashrom -f -p 0 XXX.bin (XXX means your new BIOS name)
4. Just wait until the progress finish, take out the floppy, then restart
5. Good luck

Oh...almost forget one important thing!
Backup your original BIOS first! Follow these step below:
Enter the line:
flashrom -s 0 backup.bin
(backup.bin will be your original BIOS, you may change the BIOS file name with something that easy for to remember)

I would RMA the card. If you flash a different card you may ruin it. People flash their BIOS to permanently OC their card to known stable values, or to unlock additional pipelines. This isn't possible on the RV570 GPU, so don't do it.
I flashed mine for %100 fan speed using ATIFlash.

i believe this is his second 1950 Pro. i don't think the problem is with your video card. remember that you're trying to run a very powerful video card with your x4 PCI-E slot. i believe your problem lies elsewhere.
