Bricked my Graphics card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I tried to flash a vbios on my graphics card, and it failed. ATIwinflash was not responding so I closed it, and then when I restarted, there was no post. I am getting the beep code for hardware component failure, I tried flashing the bios again with freedos and Rufus but it doesn't work. I boot off the integrated graphics, and even when I hotswap the graphics card back in and enter the commands with no interface it just gives an error. Even if I set It to IGD, it doesn't boot if I have the graphics card in. Any suggestions?

You'll need to manually flash the vBIOS chip with a EEPROM programmer, or replace the vBIOS chip. It won't boot up because the GPU is not talking to the system anymire.

I also heard about the way to do it by holding a wire between the 1st pin and the 8th pin on the bios chip. Could I also try that? I don't have a soldering iron so I guess I would just have to hold the wire.
