i had a lock up during flashing a slave bios. now the card is showing up post procedure and then nothing but blinking cursor. booting with a second card as a primary adapter results in the same problem. so the problem is i can't boot the system with my corrupted card installed to reflash it back again.
please help! :cry:

Can you tell more about your system? What of type of graphics card was it? PCI or PCI-e ? Did you change in the bios the primairy graphics slot to PCI when using a PCI card ?

the problem was solved by updating BIOS on motherboard (Gigabyte EP45-DS3), then it was able to boot up) :rockout:
