But why does any of the BIOS from TechPowerUp fit your card?

I flashed wrong bios. HDMI Port is dead now. so I need original bios.

Try other bios? No. It's gonna kill my card.
I understood that...

But you have some original BIOSes here and any of them are good for your card, as you say!!

I was asking why does anyone works for your card... Is there any feature that is not in any of TechPowerUp BIOSes or is that another reason???


Note:

My Vapor-X is from Sapphire but it's vendor ID was as PC Partner, so I've changed it to Sapphire with RBE and flashed it back to the card and It's working nice and with Sapphire as Vendor ID...

I didn't know about PN number.

I visited at sapphire site yesterday. There is new bios.

So I downloaded and run flash.bat.

I didn't realize '-f option' in it.

It forcely flashed and bios backup file is not working.

I hope you understand my poor english.

I can understand your English... I'm not English myself too!

So you downloaded a supposed newer BIOS from Sapphire site but looks like was not the correct version (correct PN number) to your card, right?

And you have a backup file that It's not working!

This I can understand...

What I can't understand is how do you know that any of TechPowerUp BIOSes will work to your card! How do you check that those BIOSes doesn't suite your card.

I flashed other HD6870 bios. Then all ports are dead.

I restored it with lent vga card from my friends. Because I don't have any PCIE cards or intergated graphic.
(I restored to sapphire's wrong bios and not working HDMI port now.)

I never say 'I check' or 'I know' they are not working my card. I said 'I think' because I tried one of them and it's completely not working for me.

I can't try one more time. I return my friends card.

jerim we understand your english but if you can give a bir more info will be more helpfull.Sapphire is a hugr company with
3 HD 6870 models
2 vapor-x 6970 models
5 HD6870 models
2 toxic 6870 models
2 flex 6870 models

Google search gave nothing for 299-3e174-030sa , search for 11179-09 gave some results http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/sapphire-11179-09-20g-hd6870-gddr5-1gb-256bit-amd-radeon-dx11-ekran-karti/productdetails.aspx?I_ID=56095#allImages,you are lucky it is a turkish shopping site and ill hunt bios at turkish forum(S) for you but who knows the result .Fastest way is maling sapphire for new bios .

Btw i looked all sapphire 6870models at sapphire's own site but no bios for 11179-09 sku cards.

Can you confirm your card identical the linked one?

I've already started a thread in two different foruns from my country...

Maybe someone has the same card has you and can send me the original BIOS file...

You should do the same to increase the possibility of finding someone with the same card as yours...

;)


Here are the links... Maybe if you translate to English you can understand if you want to follow them

Im sorry to hear this ,this is beyond stupid .
I found that sapphire has posted 11179-00 bios (card with 2 display port and custom pcb and fan ) at 11179-09 (card with one display port ,custom pcb and fan ) download page .I took screenshot of these pages.
Mail them and tell they put bios of http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1037&pid=981&psn=&lid=1&leg=0# to your cards download too http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1037&pid=1270&psn=&lid=1&leg=0# and your card is not working now because of this .

6870 models excel list link http://www.sapphiretech.com/archive/matrix-vga-1_4_041.xls

Btw where can someone find this 11179-09 code ?card or box ?

Sapphire denied my request.

Your link, this link and my card are all same in appearance.
