Hi guys,
I've done my research and I found this is a known issue. The bios is not uploaded anywhere and I need for this specific board: 299-3E174-030SA.
I've upgraded the bios from the official page, and HDMI is now dead.

Could anyone please provide the original BIOS for this?

Thanks very very much for your time

Greetings from Argentina

Hi

Welcome to TPU

Have asked Sapphiretech?

Go here create an account and open a support ticket with sapphire and ask them if their engineers would be able to supply a vbios image; [update or replacement]

*Maybe* as the card has been flashed with a proprietary vbios from the Sapphire download page; they should have no issue providing a replacement vbios image

[saying this it also states clearly that the vbios image provided by sapphire is ONLY for 288]
"Oct 7, 2011 ONLY FOR SKU# 11179-00 , P/N:288-1E177-100SA , 288-1E177-100KC"

Thanks very much for your help
I am opening a ticket with them right now.
You are right, I haven't seen the 288 before :(, my bad.

Will post later here if they provide it to me and also upload it to somewhere to keep it public and available.

Best regards

That's a strange device ID for that card... Is it a retail card or engineering sample?

@Sasqui, the bios isn't in the database.

Do you have a picture of it? I'm sure there's a different bios that will work on it... Really, you can just keep force flashing it until it works.

E174-030SA
SKU 11179-09

they certainly keeping this one to hidden..

not flashed by me or I would of had backup, will split screen in games on DVI-I (VGA) output
