Ask the HIS manufacturer. There is nothing wrong with it, XFX helps their customers with graphic card BIOS problems.

Can look at the thread here:

Also here is the Warranty information:

"What is covered by the Warranty?

The product warranties that maintain and repair faulty HIS graphic cards within its warranty period.

What is NOT covered by the Warranty?

This Limited Warranty will not apply if a claim is made arising from any unacceptable use or care of the Product, including (without limitation) physically damaged, graphics card is burnt out, misuse, abuse, negligence, acts of God, unauthorized modification or repair, unauthorized commercial use and any operation of the Product outside HIS recommended parameters. This Limited Warranty is also invalid if any serial number or date stamp on the Product has been altered, obliterated or removed. Cosmetic damage and normal wear and tear are not covered.

This Limited Warranty is only valid in the country where originally purchased.

The one to note is unauthorized modification. But it's always better to ask HIS.
