6950 2nd bios bricked

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Long story short:
1st bios is working fine (stock)

I also had a 6970 bios flashed on the 2nd bios, which was also working perfectly fine

Did some reading and decided that 6970 voltage/memory timings could mess up my 6950 in the long run

So I flashed that 2nd bios to a "modded 6950 shader unlock only" bios ... and the pc won't even display anything on boot



Should I have flashed the 2nd bios back to original stock bios before flashing it to the modded 6950 bios?

Is there a way I can flash/save the 2nd bios while within windows on the 1st bios? I remember reading someone had a similar issue, and could switch the bios switch from 1 to 2 within windows right before flashing?


Greatly appreciate the help!

You boot with bios that works. Once in Windows switch to the other bios and flash it. Restart and see if you boot up.

Thanks! I will definitely flash 2nd bios back to stock, but where can I find a modded 6950 bios file out there that actually works so I can successfully flash to it later on

edit the 6970 bios volts to mimic your stock bios volts using rbe.

Boot from working bios. Open atiflash (windows or dos) and just before you are about to flash, flick the switch. That way it will save over the bricked bios. I had this happen to me.

Edit: Beaten to it but it works smile.gif

I only have 1 bios on my card, which is the shader unlocked HD 6950 bios. Any problems with only having 1 bios?

how are you flashing the second bios?
