Modding a 9700 PRO to a 9500 NP?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I traded with a friend of mine a month ago, my Radeon 9700 for his GF6600.
He didn't use it with a proper cooling and my guess is that it got fried...
The indicators are strange artifacts starting even in the bios and eventually causing a hang, It's also quite impossible to load a game with it.
I don't suppose, that non of you are familiar with this particular problem,
So I'll Just have to improvise.
Ill try to flash the BIOS, hopefully it solves the problem, if it fails to,
Il attempt to mod this card into a 9500 NP hoping that locking 4 pipes will solve the problem. I would of done it by soft mod but it just doesn't holds on very long at windows without hanging...
Can i commit it by simply moving the resistor?.
The card was manufactured as rad eon 9700, do you think that such mod
is possible?, If it fails to solve the problem, I'll try some volt mods.
Thanks in advance...

Before I tried to move resistors, I would try a simple voltmod and get the voltage down, along with the clock speeds. Check out This page and find the exact Manufacturer/Model of the card, and then use the ATI BIOS editor to bring the voltage down by a few tenths of a Volt.

I thought of this as a last option, thanks!, REP+.
I tried to set the clocks to 200/200 through ATI tool and it only lasted that
long....

The label on my chips saying:

Obviously it's Samsung RAM, PCB manufactured by ATI,
Which memory configuration should i choose?, My guess is that it's 2.8.

I would download 2.6, 2.7, and 2.8 on 3 seperate floppies, all set up to flash so that if one goes bad you can flash to another easily.

Nice tool... But i unfortunatlly i can't reduce voltages with it...
