Clearly I have no idea what I'm doing. - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Could you post, in detail, the exact steps you took when reflashing the card? You may have missed something simple, I wouldn't write the card off yet.

It makes me cry to see people mindlessly bricking extra graphics cards when I'm barely scrounging up money for a second gpu. (college student atm) Fate can be so cruel.

I'm in pretty much the same boat, just starting University this year (I'm an Auzzie) and bought this card on ebay. Was trying to squeeze everything I could out of it

Crazy 9000, I formatted my USB using HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool into a DOS boot disk, loaded atiflash and the MSI bios on it, then booted into the usb. The command I typed was "atiflash -f -p 0 MSI.A11"
because MSI.A11 was the bios file i had (Used that one because apparently it works with more cards than the Asus). It said a bunch of lines of code about replacing files and such, then said "please reboot to continue" so i pressed the reset button.

Now I can boot using onboard video, and get into atiflash, but it claims that there is no adapter plugged in (error 0FL01), even though it is in its slot and both power plugs are plugged in. I read on this thread http://forums.techpowerup.com/archiv...p/t-45784.html that apparently the onboard graphics disables the dedicated graphics slot? That would explain why it's not showing up in atiflash. (yes that is an OLD guide and it says AGP)
I can try it in a dual-pci-e slot motherboard with my friend's computer (he has a 6970), but he's away for Australia Day.

You can also try doing a blind flash.

disable onboard graphics. Boot from the USB (Give it time) and attempt to flash just via keyboard input. Once you have done "atiflash -f -p 0 oldbios.bin" go grab some food and come back in 15-30minutes and reboot and pray. =)

Blind flash doesn't work. It doesn't POST (no usual click sound that I listen out for when overclocking), and hell, the USB and hard drive lights even stay dead. Spose I'll just have to keep my 5770 instead of selling it :|

Just find someone that has a motherboard with 2 PCI-E slots. If worse comes to worse, you can usually take it to the local computer repair shop and tell them your situation and how you would like to resolve it.

Eh, shame, i didn't expect this one to be recovered. As others have suggested, i'd take it to a pc shop and explain your situation...hopefully the place isn't run by complete amateurs who won't know what you're talking about

Since "atiflash -i" didn't show anything, why don't you try probing manually with "atiflash -v"? Grab the MSI BIOS file you tried to flash the card with initially and check to see if the BIOS on any of the adapters matches that one. You specify the adapter with -p X where X is the number of the adapter. So you'd try "atiflash -p 0 -v MSI.A11" and if they don't match, then "atiflash -p 1 -v MSI.A11". It's possible that none of the adapters will match the MSI BIOS file if the initial flash failed. I'm hoping the flash was successful and that the problem is that the BIOS you used is not compatible with Powercolor's non-ref board.

If you manage to find the card with the manual probing above, then a force flash of the proper BIOS should un-brick the card. If the probing is unsuccessful, you may have luck blindly force flashing where you think the card might be. Only try this as a last resort though, and don't do it unless you know where the card you are using for display is(the one that still works and is connected to your monitor). The last thing you want to do is brick a second card.
