If that doesn't work, mind telling me who they are?
Thanks Core2uu. I think my case is different as windows and CPUz can detect his card. If that is the case, flashing is possible.

Mine is totally not detected by both DOS and Windows.

I have already tried all the version of nvflash that I can get from the net. Asus have given me an RMA number, I am sending the cards back for repair. Hopefully they are not expensive to get repaired.

Thanks.

Ii used the intergrated graphics as a primary I have a ASUS p5g41c-m lx and i bricked my SAPPHIRE HD 5770 1GB @850 GPU CORE. Also does anyone know where can i get the stock bios of this version?

-edit from using the intergrated graphics IDG and tried using atiflash -i the adapter not found. im not sure what im doing wrong, i put the bios and the atiflash.exe files into a folder i named it ATIBIOS. Any tips?

-edit i changed the bios IDG + PEG hybrid, luckly that showed me something when i typed atiflash -i.

-edit well it only shows 1 video card adapter and the ASCII name is Juniper, i can definitely say that you can fix it by using your onboard.
just remember to change your settings to IDG+PEG hybrid for it to work.

thank you so much for your guide!!!!!

Yeah, you have to make both adapters visible to ATiFlash but make the working one the primary, and it looks as if you did that and it worked out for you. Cheers

Let's start with the obvious questions first:
1) Did you plug your 6950's cable into the correct DVI port (after flashing)?
2) Was the flash successful when you used ATiFlash to do it in the Win98 command prompt?
3) Are you using YOUR card's original BIOS (after flashing)?
