Hi there, i have bricked my Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2 GB 100312-3L [ASIN: B005X64QAG] (NO DIRT, NO OC one). Screen getting black and monitor getting no signal at all on switch position 1, only on switch position 2 i can get working monitor with out drivers (with them i getting nonstop BSOD) via mismatch of something on startup.
Long story short... I bought it from amazon and with out knowledge got into flashing my baby to wrong video card's bios... got it complete. What a brain))
Now I cant find my original BIOS's, even contacted US tech support for them to send it to me. But for now i had NO luck finding them
tried to flash to
http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/8...48.101123.html

http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/9....101123_1.html

http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/9....101123_2.html

keep getting no signal on my monitor with these three...

What i am asking is to provide me these original Bios's....
or if these are the right ones and its not the point in my problem, please just help me to find a solution with your enormously big brains:confused::respect:

via mismatch of something
can you expand on what this mismatch is???? mabe the device id of the vid card???
just to be clear you can boot to the motherboard bios ,working screen, but a soon as the bios hands off to windows drivers BSOD
