Yes, it's called a blind flash. Basically, it just means flashing back to your old bios without being able to see the screen, cause your computer is still working fine. It's not that hard to do, I'm sure you can figure it out. Or if you have another GPU you can use as a primary, and put the bad one in a lower slot, then you can see what you're doing.

BTW, did you do any research on this subject whatsoever?

The problem is probably not a failure in flashing, the issue is that you successfully flashed to a bios that isn't compatible with your card. Which is somethign that you should've researched thoroughly before you did it, esp. if you don't have a second card to use.

Anyways, what medium (i.e. USB stick, or CD, or what) did you run ATIFlash from, and is the machine currently still set to boot from that device, or did you do a 'one-time' boot to that device, such that now it's back to booting from the HD?

If you are already set to boot from that medium, then you are in good shape. If not, you may have to check your mobo manual (pictures of the bios) so that you can successfully change your boot device to the one that has dos/atiflash on it.

What you basically need to do is make your machine boot to the medium with dos/atiflash, give it a minute or two, then you CAREFULLY type in (even though you can't see what your typing, you can still use the command):

atiflash.exe -f -p 0 youroriginalbiosnamehere.rom

wait like two minutes to be safe, then reboot.

You should just flash back to a stock BIOS. If you did your researcher, your card would be fine.

Are you saying that the Asus 5870 bios 'worked' fine on your card, but you just couldn't change the voltage? Did you at least get 1.162V as your stock 3d voltage when you switched to this bios? Do you mean that using afterburner, you could move the voltage slider, but the actual voltage didn't change when you ran a 3d app? If both of those things are the case, then I fixed that problem with my cards, and the same way may work for you.

Other than that, if you couldn't even get the voltage slider to be enabled in afterburner, and your voltage didn't change to 1.162 automatically from the 5870 bios being on there, then I've no idea what bios you should use to get voltage control. I'm not sure there even is one, cause I don't know anythign about the card you have. Is it reference?

Either way, for NOW, I'd flash back to the original bios, get your machine back up, and then do some research.
