I was being a nob. I got the original firmware off my video card and then edited the bottom right in RBE (Radeon Bios Editor) and I changed the model from 5850 to 6990. Then I restarted the computer the video card worked but the ATI drivers dont work with it now. its just a standard VGA Adapter.

I flashed with ATIWinFlash 2.0.1.14 and since i restarted the computer it wont detect a ATI Card. And neither will the latest ATIFlash in dos. Ive tested it

In device manager its a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter

(This is under hardware ID's)
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D&SUBSYS_E1401043&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D&SUBSYS_E1401043
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D&CC_0300

(This is under compatible ID's)
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6F9D
PCI\VEN_1002&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_1002&CC_0300
PCI\VEN_1002
PCI\CC_030000
PCI\CC_0300


I've tried using a different GPU for the primary. I would like your help to get this card working.

Lol it broke yesterday and by the afternoon I had a Nvidia GTX570 as a replacement. I would like to just get this working as a secondary and maybe move it to another pc.

Now I got a few methods

Maybe you could edit the ATI Driver files with these ID's or something and get the ATI Display driver at least working and that way i can get ATIWinflash to detect the card and allow itself to flash it.

I get No Adapter Found in ATIflash

atiflash -i (Result No Adapter Found)
atiflash -f -p 0 original.bin (Result No Adapter Found)
atiflash -f -p 1 original.bin (Result No Adapter Found)
atiflash -f -p 2 original.bin (Result No Adapter Found)
atiflash -f -pa original.bin (Result No Adapter Found)

Just let me know how i can just force flash the card cause i got the original.bin bios.

BTW I'm Using a ASUS P6T Deluxe

I Opened up Techpowerup GPU-Z Software
Selected Standard VGA Adapter at the bottom

Update......
I've got the sapphire version.

Which side is the eeprom, thermal paste side or the back that isnt covered by the heat sink?

Thanks Ill be uploading some pictures of my card soon in high reso and then you can highlight exactly what chip the eeprom is. Ill also lable what the eeprom says. And I dont know where to find the datasheet so ill just give you all the letters and numbers written ontop of the eeprom chip.

if all else fails read the pdf.
I assume you have tried to blind flash with no results
good luck;)

and I changed the model from 5850 to 6990.
Why would anyone with an understanding of bios flashing do this? I hope you can get things working with the .pdf Frogger gave you.

on the asus card the eeprom with the green dot [lower left next to the gpu} is the chip you need to get the data sheet for. note the chips all have the same # on all cards MAKE sure your's is the same OR get the data sheet for your chip:D

Okay now we are making some progress can you give me links for the chips in datasheet. Also can you now help me recover the bios i got the original bios image. Help me get ATIflash to detect it.
