hello all, i just bought a spphire x1800xt 512mb card, and decide to flash it to PE version since many people stated that is a great boost instead of doing the overclocking.. but after i downloaded the x1800xt PE bios from Techpowerup ATI bios collection page, at first i used the flashrom.exe instead. but it seems didn't work with x1800 seriese as it wont detect the video card.. then i tried to used it with ATIflash.exe 3.09, now the problem begin.. after i typing in the command and hitting enter, my screen start becoming flickering.. all those white green blue lines all over the screen and messing up the dos text , because of that i dont know if the flash was sucess or not( i didn't hear a beep sound as i normaly will when i flash my x800gto to x800xt). then i reboot the pc and everyting go back to normal. once i log in the window i try to check my video card version by entering catalys control center , but it still state as ATI x1800 series.. dosn't says XT PE... ( im not sure if it suppose to says that or not) i try to load up ATI 0.25 beta 14 but it only detects the 2d mode speed which is at 600/700. (and yes i disable the ATI hot key and ATI smart service in msconfig) so i decide to use ATIwinflash to find out. when i use ATI winflash with the PE bios, it says this bio already install.. BUT when i try to flash to my old bios it says the samething.. this bio already install!!!. i tried to download the regular x1800xt 512mb bio from techpowerup and trying to flash to that one, it still says the samething this bio already install. so to you expert out there how do i find out if my flashing was sucess or not? do you guys think i should manualy overclock this card instead of flashing? would there be any differents from flashing to PE? thanks for reading this long post and sorry for my poor english.
