hi everyone,

Does anyone know where I could get a evga 7950GT 256mb Bios version 5.71.22.46.06 ?

or if anyone have this card with the exact bios version above, would be possible to backup the VGA Bios using GPU-Z and email me, please?

thanks in advance.

Why exactly do you need a specific bios?

You can find many different bios files for the 7950GT here. I also have a few of my own, except they are modified for when i used 2 in SLI.

Edit: Btw many manufacturers use that same bios on alot of their cards. Youll find the specific one you want in the link for which make you want.

i got a dead a evga 7950gt that came with corrupted bios, so i re-flashed it with the closest version of the original BIOS( 5.71.22.46.26 instead 5.71.22.46.06)... but the card is not working properly... im wondering if the problem is due to hardware issues(bad gpu, idk) or because the new BIOS is different from the original version.

You might just struggle there as I think the EVGA 256MB cards were quite rare, i can find 15 EVGA 512MB bioses but sadly not a single 256MB (of the later revision), usually EVGA ran to reference designs for their non overclocked cards so you may find that any reference 256MB Bios might work, you will just need to check out the clocks/voltages in Nibitor before you try anything.

Edit: the leadtek one in the list Momentomoir posted above might be a good starting point. The reason why your last flash failed could be one of many things, maybe memory spec/timings significantly different, if you can access the memory chips you might be able to find out what you have or maybe there is a spec sheet in EVGA's support archives.
