    Anybody tried Flashing an 5750 with 5770 Bios yet?

    If it doesn't work can you flash back to the original 5750 , without any problems?
    Or that could still kill your card?

    I wonder because my card can do over 900 on the core & 1330 for the ram... but i can't afford another card right now but if i ever get extra cash to spend i'll try it out for sure...;)

    Anybody here could sacrifice an 5750 for all of us out there... :D

    Restoring all shaders in Sapphire 5770 Vapor X

    Hi.
    I got some pm's from people regarding the guide i made in other post aboute Restoring all shaders in Sapphire 5770 Vapor X.

    They say that they cannot follow my guide.

    I made an updated guide and i tryed to make it simplier and more detailed.

    So here it goes...

    Disclaimer:
    I Take No Responsibility For Anything / Use At Your Own Risk

    This Guide will show you how to restore all 800 shaders in your "buggy" sapphire 5770 Vapor X graphics card.

    1) Make sure that your Graphics card is the one with the "buggy" bios.

    a. Get GPU-Z from here : http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/

    b. Run GPU-Z and see if you have all shaders (800). If you have 800, your card is OK and no action is needed. Only continue when you see 720 shaders.

    2)!!!CAUSION!!!
    a. FOR THOSE THEIR MOTHERBOAD HAS 2 OR MORE PCI-E SLOTS, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR VAPOR X GRAPHICS CARD IS PLASED IN PCI-E SLOT 0 ( 0 IS THE UPPER PCI-E SLOT CLOSEST TO THE CPU).

    b.If you have multiple graphics cards, remove all and leave the one you want to flash.

    3) Take a backup of your current bios from GPU-Z and save the file just in case.

    4) You will need this .iso image file.
    View attachment Image.zip

    a. Just burn the image using nero to a blank cd.
    b. Go to your motherboard bios and set the bios to boot from CD.(if you dont know how to do this, read the motherboard's user manual.)

    5)
    a. Insert the cd you just burned and boot from it.
    b. Now you are in dos.

    c. Try to locate the cd drive letter by typing the following:

    d: (and then press enter)
    or
    e: (and then press enter)
    2.jpg

    when you find the cd drive letter type:
    dir (and then press enter)

    when you see the files just like the above photo type:

    flash (and then press enter)

    The program will inform you that the bios flash has finished and then you restart your system(power off and then power on).

    If everything goes fine, your pc will boot up and you are done!.

    All credits goes to W1ZZARD and CrackerJack i did NOTHING i just follow there guides.

    thank you.
