How To: Unbrick Your Bricked Graphics Card/Fix a Failed BIOS Flash - Page 15

I'll leave this as a warning to anyone that reads this, DO NOT FLASH NON REFERENCE GRAPHICS CARDS WITH ANYTHING OTHER THAN MODIFIED BIOS DESIGNED FOR THAT EXACT CARD! Or you'll end up with a $150 paperweight like I did.

Can't they fix it at AMD if you send it

My system specs:

Motherboard: Intel DH55TC

Processor: Intel core i3 540

Power Supply: Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK 600 Watts PSU

GPU: AMD Radeon HIS 6870 IceqX 1 GB



I saved bios of 6870 with the help of GPU-Z and copied it to my desktop. Then I edited voltage with the help of RBE .I kept original bios unmodified. I made a bootable USB and flashed my 6870 with this edited bios and it worked fine. I played lots of game with this for one week. But after one week I flashed my GPU with a bios downloaded from TPU. This new downloaded bios is of same model HIS Radeon HD 6870. ATIFlash warned me not to flash as checksum of both bioses were different but I flashed it forcefully. Now I have black screen. Then I removed this GPU and put DVI cable in onboard video port and in motherboard's bios I set it to boot from onboard video port. Then I inserted bootable USB with original bios on it and restarted PC and choose to boot from USB buttttttt now it does not boot from USB, monitor says no signal. How would I restore original bios to GPU???

people say on forums that if you have bad bios flash then reflash it with the original one using on board video.

Now sometimes it booted from USB and when I launched ATIFlash -i command it says "adapter not found" . Now is there something I can do?

After a system crash, one of my GTX275's is bricked. As soon as it's plugged into any PCIe x16 slot, the system refuses to even budge, as if I didn't even pres the power button.
Adding a second card doesn't help a bit.

Have I shorted the card? Is there any way of fixing it?
post #146 of 254
can someone here help me out please?

SO i followed the instructions on the thread to unlock voltages

But i probably missed or failed. So now i cant start my computer with the GPU

So instead i have the DVI on my CPU on running with iGPU

My problem now is, that on step 15 i dont know what kinda of commands to use to flash back my GPU.. I have a gtx 680

EDIT: got the help i needed =)

i need some help here, i have bricked my brand new gigbyte hd 7770 1GB OC card during a bad bios update, i have restored it back using F2 bios, by using a secondary PCI card in dos environment, just like the method given here, i worked fine, and now the 7770 card is operational again. But as soon as i install the driver on win 7 x64 i get BSOD. When i uninstall the driver (drive sweeper and all) and run on standard VGA driver things run okay, i am annoyed.

I have done a complete catalyst and driver uninstall, and reinstall
My card bios is restored to F2 and i properly identified as a 7770 by atiflash -i
windows recognizes it as 7700 series card and even automatically install a driver
Card is running fine on "Standard VGA driver"

But whenever after a clean driver and catalyst install i reboot my system (Win 7 x64) i get a BSOD with atikmdag.sys error.
some time no driver file is mentioned on the BSOD just a x0000007E


HELP me, i my country there is no warranty for any card. HELP

I'm not shure anyone could help me with this, but I'll give it a try.
I flashed a 7970 GHz edition bios on my non-reference XFX 7970 DD with win flash. Now if I have the card in the computer, it would post, but then shutdown in an instant. Anyone have any idea what's going on? Did I brick my card? Any helpful advice is appreciated. Thank you
