    Today, I started OC'ing a x1950pro I bought. After some OC'ing I've found stable clock speeds, extracted the card's BIOS and edited it with RaBiT. This all went fine. Then I downloaded AtiWinFlash and clicked the "program" button after loading up the modified BIOS. It immediately gave me an error saying erasing the old BIOS failed. Flashing the old BIOS back gave the same error. So I shutted down the pc, inserted some old TNT2 PCI card and wanted to reflash it with the DOS based Atiflash. However, it couldn't detect any ATi cards.

    What to do now? How can I make AtiFlash recognise the card and therefore enable me to try flashing the old BIOS back?

    Fortunately, I haven't payed alot for the card (got it from a friend), but it would be a shame if I wouldn't be able to revive it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated,
    iDont
