Last night I used that update for the 4870 series GPUs on the Asus Website. But like luck has it my card became bricked. So if you have an ASUS EAH 4870 Matrix please help me out.
Could some one please make a BIOS backup with GPU-z please ?:)
Thanks all and any help is much appreciated.
PM me on how you want to get me the BIOS.

I still have a reference ATI 4870 and I am capable of using ATI flash and it is effective on my Asus EAH 4870. I am just not capable of getting a postable BIOS

I don't have the card, but I do not get what you are saying. What update for the card on the website?

Sorry I want clear Castiel

The update on the asus website bricked my video card.
Here is my chat with their tech support.

Krisenda Allen> How can I help you?
Reese> Oh I need a BIOS
Reese> For an Asus EAH 4870 Matrix
Krisenda Allen> Have you went to our support site?
Reese> Yes I have
Krisenda Allen> Do you need firmware update for the card or do you need BIOS update for the motherboard its on?
Reese> The Firmware for the videocard
Krisenda Allen> Just one moment...it should have been on the site.
Krisenda Allen> What operating system?
Reese> Windows Xp
Krisenda Allen> I see the update on our site.
Krisenda Allen> http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Krisenda Allen> then type in 4870 where it says input model to search and press enter
Reese> I did
Krisenda Allen> then select the 4870 series
Krisenda Allen> then select OS
Krisenda Allen> I am looking at it
Reese> Yea
Reese> That part number doesnt math that of the one on my PCB
Reese> It turned my videocard into a brick last time
Reese> Then I used ati flash and fixed it with an older asus BIOS
Krisenda Allen> well the ATI update is more up to date then ours.
Krisenda Allen> Ours come from them anyway.
Krisenda Allen> what issue are you having cause you said that the ATI fixed it.
Reese> The Asus update that you sent me made my videocard not able to go though the post check
Reese> so I took an update from my other older asus 4870
Reese> and flashed it to it
Reese> it alows it to post but crashs when any 3d apps run
Reese> Do you have some one who could email me the 4870 BIOS file it should be a .rom or a ..bin
Krisenda Allen> Just one moment.
