    Hi,

    Do you have more info (specs) about your PC setup (motherboard, power supply unit, memory etc. etc. - including the specific model)?

    As for flashing the HD 5870, well, find out whether it's really the bios of the vga card causing the BSOD, most of the time the culprits are: weak/insufficient power supply unit, driver issues, defective memory, memory timings being too tight, insufficient cooling or overclocking the cpu, gpu and/or memory too far/much. Are you sure it's not game specific, or you are having BSOD with every game you are running with the HD5870? Find out the cause first before flashing the videocard and it will save you from a lot of trouble.
