6950 flashing to 6970 problems.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I follow the guides and put the switch into position 1, And flash the BIOS.

When restarted GPU-Z shows 6970 shader count and clock speeds.

But when I attempt to load up a game I get a 'display driver stopped responding' error..

Any suggestions?

Maybe a BIOS that only unlocks the shaders and doesn't alter clock speeds?

SOME CARDS CAN BE DAMAGED FROM THE FLASH. NO NOT USE THE STRAIGHT 6970 BIOS.

Put the switch in pos. 2 with the computer OFF.
Boot up the computer.
Put the switch in pos. 1 with the comp ON and log in.
Flash back to the old bios. Keep the switch in pos 1 and reboot.

Download this:

and use it to mod your OEM bios to an unlocked one.
Flash to that bios and then manually OC it to a 6970 level if you have voltage control.
