I've gotten all the way up to step 15. When I enter "atiflash -i" to find my adapter number, I get "Bad command or file name". What am I doing wrong?

That means that atiflash doesn't exist in the folder you are trying to run it from. Make sure you put it in the correct folder (by correct folder, I mean, put it where you are going to be running it from, if that makes any sense).

Try this switch;

 

atiflash -unlockrom 0

 

 

Edit:

 

Do you have bios.rom in that folder? It said file not found.

 

C:\Folder > bios.rom

 

Your file has no extension. Atiflash will not be able to read "bios". It has to be bios.rom or bios.bin.

Yeah, bios.ROM was in the same folder, I don't know why I'm getting "file not found".

Glad to hear it. An addendum has been added to step 15 to make sure other people don't make the same mistake. thumb.gif

I went through the whole thread. I am having a similar issue as many here. I have an ATI 5850 card. Last week, ATI prompted me to updrade to CCC 12.2. The update sent my card into a tailspin where it would crash while running video and any game. I had had some issues with the GSOD rarely with some simple games, so I took this opportunity to just try and fix everything. I found a modified .rom from someone having similar troubles and decided to try flashing...whoops! Uninstalled drivers and flashed from DOS loading USB. Rebooted with lovely black screen and computer not booting up. So I switched to the IGP and booted up with atiflash in DOS off a USB, but I get the "Adapter not found" message on atiflash -i. I have now disassembled the card and was prepared to do the pin 1->8 bridge, but my chip labels are quite a bit different than what has been listed.

The 8 pin chips are as follows:
Backside
-up7701u8 agp072(which i believe handles the voltage stepping)
-a chip with a bright green sticker on it that says TV252 H5102 (took sticker off and chip is blank. It also has a U11 label above it)
Frontside
-another up7701u8 chip
-one on the tail end of the card near the power connector apr7165a vwa32

I am comparing my card to those that have been listed and am thinking that maybe some chips have been combined to make this an ultra-non-friendly-reference card. I am tempted to just buy a 7850 when they come out next week but thought I'd try to fix this up.

So my questions are: Any idea which one of those 8 pins to jump? And if I did said jump with IGP, would this trick still work, or do I need to go out and find me a straight PCI video card (only one PCIE slot).

Help is much appreciated.
