Hey, I'm trying to resolve an issue that involves my core's OCed clock rate resetting as described in this thread:<br><a href="http://www.overclock.net/ati-drivers-overclocking-software/128776-core-speeds-wont-retain.html" target="_blank">http://www.overclock.net/ati-drivers...nt-retain.html</a><br>
Someone from another forum told me that it was because of something in my BIOS that is switching it back....so he said that I had to edit my BIOS. I downloaded an ATI BIOS editor, so I was wondering if someone could tell me how to use it. I OC with Rivatuner.

You will need a flashing utility to boot into the cards bios from a floppy. All can be found at <a href="http://http//www.mvktech.net/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,1/" target="_blank">mkvtech.com</a> Thats about all i can offer for ATI flashing/editing. I have never owned an ATI card so my knowlage of them is limited.

Is flashing the BIOS permanent/can it hurt my card permanently?

Yes and yes. <br />
<br />
Make sure you make a backup of your gfx BIOS before flashing.<br />
Also double check, no triple check that your BIOS are compatible as if it does not work you will get no signal to the monitor and will have to get a PCI graphics card before you can flash it back <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Have you tried unlocking the card via ATiTool?

</div>Well.....I've used ATI tool beta 16 pre5 build, but I wasn't aware that you could unlock your BIOS with it. Does ATItool perform overclocking at the BIOS level? Also, is there a version that you could suggest? You may want to read the thread that I posted above, for this is the reason that I'm asking how to edit the BIOS. I'd really rather stay away from the BIOS, because it's permanent.
