Drop what you are doing and lets get back to the start.

1. What is wrong with your card that you need to flash it?

2. What is the Brand, Make, Model of your card?

3. Please take pictures of all of the white stickers located on the back of the card and side of the heatsink near the pcie edge connector, get a GPU-Z screenshot and post all pics here

Since the card is working correctly there really isnt any reason to flash the card and potentially brick it. If you insist I need some info from you.

Get GPU-Z and take a screenshot of it please. I will try to help you but i need your co-operation.

Once you do that then we can proceed
