Hello.
I tried to update bios for my new graphic card, i used bootalbe pendrive with atiflash + some bios for HD 4870 ( i think i chose wrong bios, but i;m not sure), when i type atiflash -f -p 0 4870.bin there was some text and at the end "now u can restart ur computer" something like that, then i used ctr + alt + delete. After reboot my monitor was OFF GPU fan was ON and nothing else. I took my card to my friend who have 2 x pci-e for first slot we put his 8800 and for second mine card, then i boot again winflash from USB stick, and when i used winflash -i, program saw only 1 card- 8800... when he lunch his OS in new drivers it was new device without drivers, so i;m sure OS saw my card... What can i do before use guaranty(time=3-4 weeks)? At the end for my post sorry for my english ;p please reply someone with some advice.

well you can't use guarantee because flashing it voids it :/...

but yeah you can still flash to it, (in your friends computer) as long as the computer knows there is a device there (which you said it does) it should be ok try locating the stock bios for your card (i hope you backed it up..) then force flash it with -i -p 1 4870.bin

hope this helps.

Why did you flash a EAH 4870 DK?

You need to force flash with atiflash again using: -f -p 0 4870.bin

So if the card is in the first slot and you try force flashing, nothing happens? It's not going to be recognized before the flash.
