Cant flash a 9250?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
K, For a crap card Ive been able to get an ok OC on it by addin a old cpu to the passive hs and manage 305/220(440) opposed to 240/200. Now I got to thinkn' why not flash the bios to these speeds, save on the program oc. I grabbed up Biosedit, radedit and radeonbiostuner, backed up my original bios onto floppy and inspected it with the editors, set the clocks to my maxes and saved the bios. I also downloaded some other 9200 and 9250 bios to compare and only noticed a couple differences between them all (vendor/system id tags) with my new ones values the same as original..Anyways I tried flashin the modded bios with Flashrom and atiflash to no avail I recieve an error code(forgot to write down..) but it says when I check it that its locked(bios?) My card is PCI with onboard disabled. Any ideas??...Besides a new card

Hmm Ive heard of some doing it with the 9250 and 9200Pro but I get an error of bios locked. Ive added on an old cpu fan to the stock heatsink but still cant get much more juice outta the crap card, maxes out 310/220(440). gonna be grabbin up a BFG 6200 sooner then later I guess...hopefully find one that unlocks the pipes....Thanks
