hi all,
Have a question maybe someone can help? I have a 6950 Visiontek 2GB. video card with a bad flash from someone who didn't know which way was up.I plugged the card in and an old nvidia pci card and booted up. The visiontek shows up with gpu-z but everything is off, instead of 800mhz. it reads zero (0) and the temp is way above melting point plus most of the other readings are off except it says Cayman 6950 but not much more, All I get is a bright blue screen from it.
I tried a re-flash to the original bios with no luck,tried flashing a 6970 that I used before still the same.I have done maybe 50 flashes without a hitch, fixed a few also , but never ran into one that couldn't be fixed. Anyone know of an atiflash command to erase the Bios completely so I can start fresh. It has the dual Bios switch but I get no response from it either, fan runs great though and nice and quiet ,card looks almost new? In win 7 it reads no resources being used because card has a problem no. also says one or more files for this card are corrupt , this is in system properties. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thank you
frank

Did you get that card from someone else or it is your card?

It was mine ,loaned it to someone who said they were looking to buy and wanted to try it out.Got it back with the song that the shaders wouldn't unlock. ( I never tried to unlock them) anyway when I went to use it awhile later on a build all I got for video output was a bright blue screen not black and not BSD but bright blue!At first I thought maybe it was the mobo or the monitor,but after checking with a different monitor with the same result I put in another card and it was perfect.So I knew it was the card, anyway about 3 months had gone by and when I asked the guy about bricking my card he denied it with a story,wasn't much I could do,I never saw him screw it up so maybe it just? Who knows. So now I'm trying to fix it.

Did he change a part of your card? Was that guy your friend?

Sometimes when you loan something electronic to someone, they can take out parts (Like the GPU) and put back an way cheaper one. It already happened once to me when I tried to ask someone to put an Mod-chip in my Wii...
