WinFlash won't work (3870 bios mod attempt)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey ocn,

after running 3dmark with my core at 885, i realized that this card is meant for greater things so i started to look into editing and flashing the bios to higher volts.

the problem is that when i save the bios file (using tech powerup's v1.10) i have no way to load it onto my card

they recommend WinFlash, but when i dl the newest version, the .exe won't load anything, it gives me the loading cursor for 1/2 a second then ignores the request.

Tech PowerUP also touts that gpu-z can be used to save/load bios files but i don't see any such option

ideas anyone?

(PS: i upped the voltage from 1.3 to 1.35(across the boards) as a test, but can anyone with a volt-modded 3870 recommend me values?)

I don't believe winflash works with vista 64 bit, refer to the instructions on this thread. Worked for me

The little chip with the green arrow button to the right of the bios version number saves your vga bios to a folder or uploads it to the techpowerup site.
