Why would you do that they are different cards it wont work ? ? ??
Yes, it can be done, you need to "blind flash" it, wait for someone with a bit more experience in flashing cards, still could be worse, someone once flashed a 5970 with a 7600 on here iirc
did you backup your original bios before flashing? you might need a second graphics card to be in, plug the monitor into that and flash back to the original bios.
our of curiosity why did you do it, did someone tell you it would work?
hi I bought a Mercedes SLR and put a Mercedes SLK engine in it now it wont go as fast, helllllpppppp
Good luck with that.
I can probably get a copy of my Sapphire 6870 BIOS if it's needed. If it doesn't work out I can sell you my 6870 now that my 6950 has arrived.
You have not given any information as to mfgr of the HD 6870.
Also may help alittle what system/PC setup you have.
I have heard recently of Flashing Bios for 6950 upping it to 6970.
Maybe you could of been saved if you did this to a 6850 .. a 6870 might be tough.
As you get more feed back..hopefully a experienced/ knowledgeable person can help you.
You should of asked - do research before doing a BIOS Update.
The Situation you put yourself in makes us wanna Cry ! ....
Pound our heads against something ...
or just Laugh
Thanks for the humor !!! I really hope you get that HD 6870 resolved.
WTF i once flashed 6200A 64bit agp with 6200 128bit bios i throw the card away though
Doesn't the 6870 have a dual bios with a switch on it? Or is that just the 69XX series?
just the 69xx
Well, it would help if you answered our questions!
Do you by any chance mean you tried to flash a 6850 with a 6870 bios, or a 5850 with a 5870 bios and just mis-typed? I see no reason to flash a 6870 with a 5850 bios, in fact it's downright absurd.
dosent matter hes gonna need a 2nd gpu to boot from in order to actually flash the borked GPU.
dosent matter if its pci or pcie for the gpu that you boot from but right now his gpu is a worthless paperweight that cant output an image at all. So really best of luck to the OP as the general influx of people who are not fluent with English makes it much harder to diagnose there issues. I got nothing against them joining but this is a situation where someone who speaks there native language and can walk them through the process is needed. And i dont see anyone around that would fit that bill.
the above repost tells me youve read nothing or dont understand what was said 9/10 if someone does speak your native language your screwed
issue #1 system specs are not poste
issue #2 language barrier
issue #3 you still didnt answer if you had another gpu to boot with
issue #4 without system specs we dont know if you can even run a 2nd gpu to boot with and force a flash

did you back-up/save your original bios?
The system you have isn't enough for that graphics card, ESPECIALLY XP. XP cannot properly utilise dual cores and a card like yours is going to cause issues with your RAM. I'm guessing it's a 1GB card? You will lose half your RAM with that card due to the way it handles them.
dont u have another board with multiple pcie?? or have a friend with one?
then put it in there and borrow nvidia card and put the ati in primary slot and put screen in nvidia card and try flashing it in windows or dos
lets try helping him the proper way.
1. Tell us have original bios yes no?
2. have spare card? yes no
3. you flash in windows or boot from disk? if disk did you use floppy CD or USB?
I can help you blind flash card if you need it.
We know that. Please answer our questions!
where are you originally from and whats your original language so someone can actually help you and understand what your trying to say because
but always adaptor not found dosent help
Hi, please have a look at this - it might be helpful. Atiflash/Winflash dosen't recognize the card any longer, thus OP gets 'Adapter not found'.
I did this with a x800xt with success, the method involves a soldering iron and a steady hand, but it's indeed doable. (Easier than most volt-mods..)

Bios flash gone completely wrong
Now we're cooking with gas. My French is a little rusty, but I'm sure somebody who knows what they're talking about either knows it or can Google translate for him.
Mon français est rouillé. Pouvez-vous mieux comprendre ce phénomène?
