I've bought a new MSI R6790-PM2D1GD5/OC video card and it's hanging and restarting the drivers all the time. I had a look to its BIOS and found out that it was changed by someone. So I need an original BIOS for this card in order to get it working. Please any one help me. Been looking for that BIOS everywhere but had no luck.
If you have one please send it to tooroompa(g)mail.ru

If you get MSI's "MSI Live Update", you can download the BIOS through that.

He's looking for the BIOS, not the driver.

Doesn't look like it's in the GPU database. You might want to try emailing MSI directly, they might be willing to send one your way..

Here are all the MSI Radeon cards: http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...&manufacturer=MSI&model=&interface=&memSize=0

If you do get a hold of one, please upload it to the database so others can find it easier!
Sorry, bit of a typo there. You can actually get the BIOS through Live Update though.

Thanks for a quick response

The LiveUpdate would've been an easy way, unfortunately it didn't help, saying something like: Your BIOS is up to date or where is no update for your BIOS. Don't remember exactly what it says. Now I'm wondering if someone has the same card and can upload the BIOS on this server.
At the moment I'm trying to contact MSI support service to get any help. If they will... I'll share the file.

Ok, hope it all goes well with MSI. They usually respond pretty quickly.

Why do you claim that somebody messed with the BIOS btw?

Man that is Awesome!!!

I've updated our BIOS collection to include all the latest MSI HD 6790 BIOSes. Check there.
The Bios with date 2011-03-29 21:30:00 worked fine. The other 3 failed...
This BIOS absolutely different to that I had. So you never mind there the things can go wrong.
You guys(mates) did really help me!!!

Now I'll go and get drunk! The thing is not to get to "zapoy" or jag, drinking bout, spree, binge... you name it :)
