Hi !

My X800XT bios is broken because a flash went wrong, so, i want to flash a 9800 Pro's Bios to X800XT, turn off my computer's power and interchange bios eeprom between the two cards.

Maybe my X800XT will retrieve life with that operation....

So, I need to know where the PCB's location of Powercolor9800 Pro & GeCube X800XT AGP Bios is.

But before, is that operation possible ?

Thanks for your support.

Don't do that, get a PCI video card and set your bios to use that as the primary video device, then turn off your computer and put your X800 XT back in and then you should be able to flash the bios back.

Hi!

My Motherboard's Bios Doesn't Boot When my X800XT AGP Card is Plugged in, Although a pci Card is plugged too (Bios seeting : PCi/AGP of course) but It works fine with an other AGP card like my 9800 Pro...

I've tried all recovery methods posted in a lot of forums without any success, i think my X800XT's bios-EEprom is really dead.:cry:
