no beeps only beep I get is when my computer boots up. After flashing the very first time it posted and I entered my motherboard's bios and shortly after that black screened. Flashed to different bios got nothing no beep . Reflashed to asus bios and it beeped got to the motherboard splash screen and black screened.

It does have a zalman cooler on it. Maybe it's not seated properly? One of those cheap circle looking ones. I thought if i couldnt revive this sonamab I'd atelast get a cool heatsink/paper weight.

haha,well if it doesnt beep but does beep at boot then your cards not totally dead,
and the fact it does post sometimes is reassuring,
i would inspect the contact points on the hsf and see if maybe some thermal tape or paste is missing?

well guys i think i found out that it's not the bios but instead the hardware that is the problem. I did the oven trick 8-10 mins@ 200 deg 30 min cooldown and it posted for 5 minutes and then black screened. Should I try again ?

I would try an RMA

if RMA isn't possible, give the oven another go

but if it still doesn't work....well you just got a nice paper weight

He could try, but he'd have to come with a better story than "so I bought this bricked 5850 from some guy I know... wanna give me a new one?"

dude it sounds like a dry joint that reflowing closed up,
then after 10 minutes running your card cooked itself again,
i would be checking it over for something needing heat transfer that isnt making contact-
take some foto's in case something falls of the board and
take it to an electronics firm to get it reflowed properly.
might only cost a few quid.
