rafa68 Hello, when flashing my xfx rx-480 4gb has been blocked and I have a black screen in any of the two bios that I select, I have installed in a computer with integrated graphics and it does not start the bios. I tried with a bridge on pins 1-8 of one of the bios chips or on the other or both at the same time and the same result constantly restarts the computer without arriving to load the bios of the motherboard. I'm lost and I don't know how to fix it, if anyone has any ideas I appreciate it.

Saokkei Hello I've a problem, I tried to OC my 980ti with asus gpu tweak 2 and it brokes my GPU, it isnt detected anymore (even if the fans are still working as 100% speed) so I cant use nvflash or anything.

Is there any fix ?

Thanks you guys !

frer8833 I have palit (dual fan) gtx 1060 6gb and i flashed it with a bios for Palit (jetstream) gtx 1060 6b, and the display started acting up, flickering and stuff and then i restarted the PC and now the card doesn't post (i write this using iGPU). I reflashed back to correct bios that i found on techpowerup.com but still not problem solved.

Edit: ok, the problem was old bios from 2016 (not compatible with new nvidia drivers and windows 10), i reflashed a new bios from 2018 (unverified from techpowerup) and now gpu works again.

i already posted in the polaris bios mod thread but found this one while googling. maybe it's the better place to discuss my problem<br><br>
no i found the following quote in the comments of the 8-1 pin method:<br>
that seems to be the case for my card. does anybody have an idea how to fix it apart of the pin shortening?<br><br>
if not i have to go the pin route. does anybody have an idea where the bioschip of the strix 480 is located? after some googling i found a picture of the back of the pcb but the resolution is not that high. i marked the ic i suspect to be the bios.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062255/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3062255" data-type="61" src="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062255/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 197px"></a><br><br>
I tried atiflash 4.17 from 2013 but i get a "adapter not found". any other dos versions i can try?<br><br><br>
€dit: i used every force string available with atiflash and what can i tell you: The freaking Card is up and running again!!!! should have tried that earlier. already got my solder iron ready <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062329/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3062329" data-type="61" src="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062329/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 177px"></a></div>
Was that the correct chip? Which is pin 1 and pin 8?
Hey Brooooo Please tell Me How you did it, MY RX 580 IS DEAD, THE TEXT "adapter not found" and cant flash it with ATIFLASH (Windows y CMD),
I'm really desperate.

How did you do it to revive the card?

Should we execute the FORCE (-f) commands all together? or first one and then another?

Please HELP MEEE!!!!
