Hello,is there a program i can use to flash the bios on my card instead of having to go trough dos... the 10.6 driver crashed my system so even what driver can i use to restore my system how it used to be ... 10.7 doesnt even work i even reinstall windows 7 and i still get a checker screen from my bios

Checker board screen usually means dead card. You can try to use ATIraytools and unclock the Core and RAM speeds so there is less load on the card. But even that might not work. Probably time to send it back.

Remove ATI install manager in add/remove programs
uninstall all ati files
Download and install DriverSweeper
Run in safe mode
Check off ATI
Click purge
Start normal
Install CCC 10.4 from AMD

checker screen in bios... no drivers loaded there.

Re-seat the card. If no go then it's dead.

Then as I said, dead card. Replace. As was pointed out there are no drivers in the bios, so if its bad there its a dead card.

Hmmm well it's a bit odd that it was fine until you installed the new drivers.

IMO, do what Davcon suggested but also include any Nvidia drivers you might have when you driver sweep.

Make sure you have updated you motherboard BIOS as well as having all the windows updates.

Could you list your system specs? At least which video card(s) you are using, what did you have before, and how old is it?
