Help- my GPU is stock underclocked! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
You say you're having trouble getting the memory to run at 400MHz on the fanless graphics card..

Well maybe it's overheating and causing the hang.

OR maybe the original owner OCd it too much and had to underclock to get it to work at all.

Yes, the one from newegg was "open box." Had a fair amount of dust on it too...

If he overclocked it too much wouldn't it default back to 400mhz once it left his PC? Or would he have edited the bios to hold it back at 266mhz?
Should i still try flashing the bios?

Okay, I tried using ATitool to clock it at 400mhz memory... Doesn't work.
So, I took the bios from the working card and flashed it onto the underclocked card... Doesn't work.
And when i say "doesn't work" i mean the same thing happens as when I first tried to clock it at 400mhz: screen image freezes, purple and blue lines across the screen, etc.

Unless anyone has anymore ideas I think this card is borderline useless. I emailed the seller of this card (on eBay) a week ago asking about the underclock issue and he hasn't replied. Looks like I'm S-O-L on $85.
