    I still have a reference ATI 4870 and I am capable of using ATI flash and it is effective on my Asus EAH 4870. I am just not capable of getting a postable BIOS
    Could some one please make a BIOS backup with GPU-z please ?:)
    My Email is Regiboo_5000@hotmail.com if you want to just send it there Please
    Thanks all and any help is much appreciated.

    Sorry I want clear Castiel

    The update on the asus website bricked my video card.
    Here is my chat with their tech support.

    Krisenda Allen> How can I help you?
    Reese> Oh I need a BIOS
    Reese> For an Asus EAH 4870 Matrix
    Krisenda Allen> Have you went to our support site?
    Reese> Yes I have
    Krisenda Allen> Do you need firmware update for the card or do you need BIOS update for the motherboard its on?
    Reese> The Firmware for the videocard
    Krisenda Allen> Just one moment...it should have been on the site.
    Krisenda Allen> What operating system?
    Reese> Windows Xp
    Krisenda Allen> I see the update on our site.
    Krisenda Allen> http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
    Krisenda Allen> then type in 4870 where it says input model to search and press enter
    Reese> I did
    Krisenda Allen> then select the 4870 series
    Krisenda Allen> then select OS
    Krisenda Allen> I am looking at it
    Reese> Yea
    Reese> That part number doesnt math that of the one on my PCB
    Reese> It turned my videocard into a brick last time
    Reese> Then I used ati flash and fixed it with an older asus BIOS
    Krisenda Allen> well the ATI update is more up to date then ours.
    Krisenda Allen> Ours come from them anyway.
    Krisenda Allen> what issue are you having cause you said that the ATI fixed it.
    Reese> The Asus update that you sent me made my videocard not able to go though the post check
    Reese> so I took an update from my other older asus 4870
    Reese> and flashed it to it
    Reese> it alows it to post but crashs when any 3d apps run
    Reese> Do you have some one who could email me the 4870 BIOS file it should be a .rom or a ..bin
    Krisenda Allen> Just one moment.
