I just build my new rig and wanted to flash my Asus HD6950 DCII to HD6970. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. So I eventally got the card flashed, after some trial and errors. I first flashed just to unlock the shaders, it worked. Then I tried to flash with clocked settings and the computer boots (BSOD). The computer keeps booting when ever it tries to start windows. So I thought I'll just flash it back to working bios and turned power off. Switched the switch in the GPU from position 1 to position 0. Tried to restart and nothing. The power turns on but nothing happens, screen stays black.
So I cannot start the computer on GPU factory bios settings, for some reason. And the system boots on windows with my failed OC'ed bios flash. I tried booting to cmd-prompt and then reflash but AtiWinflash complains DDraw is missing. How could I get past that? Is there anything to be done?
