Thing is ive never flashed an ati card so im not sure how its done. But what you need to do is find a tutorial on how to flash your ati card so you know exactly what buttons to press. Then you need to somehow get your pc to boot from the flash drive and press the buttons in order. I remember when i was blind flashing my 7600GT, i knew my bios inside out so i knew what to do to get the floppy to boot even though nothing was on screen. So then i had to wait for a while and press something like :
-a -b -c -d something something something.

So that is basically what you need to do, sorry i couldnt be of anymore help.

No company is gonna give you a new card because of a bad bios flash. Were you honest with them when you called them?

Yea cause im gonna be honest, when theyre card messes up on me. If they didnt give me a faulty card, that VPU recoverd every 3 minutes, i wouldve never had to worry about flashing. So next time, if they spend more time building the card, they wont be replacing any cards.

It's not like this happens all the time. If I were you, I would still try to find a way to reflash to the original. They may not accept you RMA. Unless it's just newegg and I think if you are in the return window they will just send you another card.

You should have returned it when it started acting up, rather than taking it upon yourself to try to fix it. The problems you describe don't sound like they would have been fixed by a BIOS flash anyway.

Just as an FYI, these cards DO go through inspection before they send you a new one. You can bet on them checking for something like this.

The problem was my bios on the card. And why is it that i shouldve contacted them within TWENTY DAYS of buying it. Shouldn't i be a happy customer? I PAID for what i WANTED. I didn't pay to receive a defected card and send it back...cm'on man, cm'on sense is, you would try to fix any small problem by doing research. Because this has fixed many 4870. The only thing wrong that i did, is SOMEONE posted a bad flash rom, that's all. And killerhz, i still am trying to blind flash it. POOR ati performance man, i will never buy a ATI card again. i shouldn't just bought the gtx280. W/e

some companies put out new bios for their cards with problems,they should be fine with RMAing cards with botched flashes.
