Hello

I recently flashed my 6850 to a 6870 bios. Unfortunately it did not work out. Am i able to flash it back while it is in a PCI slot, not a PCI-E. I am unable to use the integrated graphics on the motherboard as they were disabled by the manufacturer.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Does it also have to be powered?

Get another GPU is the only answer if you have multiple PCI slots... and reflash the card. See if a friend has a spare or flash the 6850 on someone elses system.

I have another system of mine, plug it into the original slot and power up. Then run the comp on integrated graphics. I imagine this will work?
