    I've bought a new MSI R6790-PM2D1GD5/OC video card and it's hanging and restarting the drivers all the time. I had a look to its BIOS and found out that it was changed by someone. So I need an original BIOS for this card in order to get it working. Please any one help me. Been looking for that BIOS everywhere but had no luck.
    If you have one please send it to tooroompa(g)mail.ru

    If you get MSI's "MSI Live Update", you can download the BIOS through that.

    Sorry, bit of a typo there. You can actually get the BIOS through Live Update though.

    Thanks for a quick response

    The LiveUpdate would've been an easy way, unfortunately it didn't help, saying something like: Your BIOS is up to date or where is no update for your BIOS. Don't remember exactly what it says. Now I'm wondering if someone has the same card and can upload the BIOS on this server.
    At the moment I'm trying to contact MSI support service to get any help. If they will... I'll share the file.

    Ok, hope it all goes well with MSI. They usually respond pretty quickly.

    Why do you claim that somebody messed with the BIOS btw?

    Using RBE v1.28

    I've loaded the BIOS from the card and saw that the checkbox "BIOS had been pre-modified using RBE" is checked.

    Got a reply from the MSI

    They sent me the new BIOS consisting of two files. Now I have no idea how to flash it. Can anybody help me doing that?
