    After an unsuccessful attempt to flash the BIOS, the card is no longer recognized Catalyst . And actually interesting screenshot attached below, it is possible to like something to correct this misunderstanding? Trying to re-flash the BIOS no results failed.

    Hi

    Welcome to TPU

    Fill in system specs here

    What application/program was used to flash the vga card ?

    Note: deep clean/uninstall the AMD Catalyst Driver [maybe use DDU or similar application] Next: reinstall Catalyst Driver

    Isnt that card dual bios? should be a small switch near the crossfire connections. That will get you up and running again.

    For yet another run at the BIOS did not give a positive result

    Firmware used for dos atiflash,
    Already established knit system, but the result is still negative, windows and ati drivers can not see the video card. In Device Manager, says that this card has a problem and does not use resources.

    Hi

    +1 FR@NK ; Confirm you moved the switch to position #2 to see if the vga card boots from the second default vbios [Note: do not flash the vga card while it is in position #2 this should only be used to recover from a bad flash]

    At the DOS prompt with switch in position #1 [use a bootable flash drive] type the following command:

    atiflash -ai 0

    What dose the vga card say ? [is the vga card recognised]
