    HI guys i am new to this forum my problem is ati made x800xl in use for 2 years fine , now giving me problem . having no display at bootup and by listening to the sound its sure that windows xp is loaded but still no display.gpu fan is running alright . another card inserted system working fine ,giving display . my sys spec are cpu AMD athlon 64 ,3200+,x800xl vivo,antec tp2 550.MSI K8N NEO 2 PLATINUM . Seagate 80 gb sata . kingston pc 3200 .512 *2 dual channal. by figuring out all possibilities i find out may be its gpu bios problem so iwent for bios flashing with another pci in the socket but failed having error 0FL01. After that i went to device manager i found x800xl is recoginzed by windows so i shut down and pull out pci card ,booted with x800xl , display comes fine idont know how , but it worked fine for whole night and in between i dumped the bios file using ati tray tool , and shutdown the computer for goodnight sleep , next morning its the same problem giving no display , now i am stuck here , i inserted another card and opened bios file which i dumped last night seems to me currupted , i am attaching file here so you experts firgure it out what the problem is sorry for the long post but i am helpless here .

    if it was the card bios the board would just beep.
    make sure the card is seated properly, clean of dust

    error 0FL01... if you have a correct bios for core/memory/interface bus(pcie or agp)
    atiflash -f -p 0 bios.rom
    -f...force!

    Try mvktech.net, they have a nice BIOS collection.

    never hread about a corrupt gpu bios.
    if u can open the bios file in rabit without error is problaby good.

    if windows does boot, then the after a couple of minutes...push the power bottom and see the hard drive led if it it shutting down.

    have u tried a new monitor, maybe the tv output.

    BIOS can get corrupted, which is why a reflash is always a good idea to try, as it could save time and money.

    hi guys again to find some thing that , i flashed the bios successfully computer boots fine and no problems in the games . But when i shuts down for the night and reboot it again inthe morning again it shows no display . I did flashed for several times but same result happened . Another thing i want to ask is when flashing the bios , when i type atiflash.exe -i , it show one adaptor 0 , did 5D48 , asic Rialto , test pass , another adaptor 1 , did 5D48, asic Rv 423 , test fail , why the rom is reconizing two adaptors and wrong core i have x800xl which have RV 430 CORE . REALLY NEED THE URGENT CLEARIFICATION , thanks IS it possiable for the bios chip to get weak with the time and loose its memory when shuts down for the long time .
