    Hi guys,
    I've done my research and I found this is a known issue. The bios is not uploaded anywhere and I need for this specific board: 299-3E174-030SA.
    I've upgraded the bios from the official page, and HDMI is now dead.

    Could anyone please provide the original BIOS for this?

    Thanks very very much for your time

    Greetings from Argentina

    PS: I tried to reply on the already created thread for this but didn't allow me since it is 572 days old :(

    Hi

    Welcome to TPU

    Have asked Sapphiretech?

    Go here create an account and open a support ticket with sapphire and ask them if their engineers would be able to supply a vbios image; [update or replacement]

    *Maybe* as the card has been flashed with a proprietary vbios from the Sapphire download page; they should have no issue providing a replacement vbios image

    [saying this it also states clearly that the vbios image provided by sapphire is ONLY for 288]
    "Oct 7, 2011 ONLY FOR SKU# 11179-00 , P/N:288-1E177-100SA , 288-1E177-100KC"
    source - http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/?lid=1

    atb (all the best)

    Thanks very much for your help
    I am opening a ticket with them right now.
    You are right, I haven't seen the 288 before :(, my bad.

    Will post later here if they provide it to me and also upload it to somewhere to keep it public and available.

    Best regards

    That's a strange device ID for that card... Is it a retail card or engineering sample?

    @Sasqui, the bios isn't in the database.

    Do you have a picture of it? I'm sure there's a different bios that will work on it... Really, you can just keep force flashing it until it works.

    I mean by not been able to find a bios, looks like sapphire flex (without the flex writing)
    E174-030SA
    SKU 11179-09

    they certainly keeping this one to hidden..

    not flashed by me or I would of had backup, will split screen in games on DVI-I (VGA) output
    can not try DVI (old monitor)

    APU saves the day, this time :(
