How do you flash a Saphire HD 3870 Bios?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've tried finding something that talks about how to do this, but I've been un-sucessful. Does someone have a link to a guide, or a quick explanation on how this works?

I have downloaded the file ATI.HD3870.512.071102.bin, which is the only Bios file I could actually find. I also have ATIFlash 3.49, which I presume is the utility that I use to flash the above Bios file into my vid cards.

I've never done this before, and I'm a bit cautious based on some major problems I've read about as I've looked around, so if there is any reading on the how-to that anyone has, I would appreciate it. I can just open up the app and have a look at it tonight, but I like to know what I'm doing (at least a little) before I go sticking my nose in to things like this.

One question is, with a pair of cards, how do I do both cards? I assum this is covered by the ATIFlash app, is that correct?

Thanks

Use MVKTECH.NET They have great guides, bios and forum that should help you on your way.

Good Luck man post your results.

EDIT+++Also you will have to do one card at a time. Take one out, flash, take that card out, put the other one in, flash. Then install both. You will also have to uninstall you gpu drivers before doing this then after flashed, reinstall display drivers.
