Flashing Gigabyte HD7950 VBIOS

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

So I am having some issue with my GPUS's at the moment.

I have 2 Gigabyte HD7950 Windforces in crossfire and I keep having issues playing some games.

(By issues I mean the game wont run etc. or just black screen)

I am able to solve the issue by disabling crossfire in catalyst, but I don't really want to just have one card running right?

Anyway I looked deeper and noted that one card has the F2 BIOS and the other has the FZ1.

My question is could this be the issue, and even if it isn't how do I flash the card so they both have FZ1 or the latest version?

Cheers guys,

you need to flash the card with WinAtiFlash - you can flash your cards via Windows :

1. download the prog from here - Download ATIFlash 4.17 | techPowerUp , then put the folder in drive c \ d etc... as it is like c:\atiwinflash nor d:\atiwinflash

2. download the latest bios u want to use for both cards.

3. put the bios file in the AtiwinFlash folder , and rename the file (for easy to type it in cmd later..)

4. run cmd

5. type "cd --here you type the drive name, that the folder exists---- like "cd d:"

6.type Atiwinflash -p -f 0 (the name of the bios with the extension) 0 - means the primary card ... for example :0 atiwinflash -p -f 0 7970.rom ...type enter and wait for the flashing until done..

7. when finish, enter the same line that you typed before with the number "1" that replace number "0" and press enter (that will flash the secondary card) for examle : atiwinflash -p -f 1 7970.rom

8. when both done, restart your computer, and you have the same bios you chosen to flash

      Hello guys,
      I have a GT72VR 6RE with G-sync MSI Laptop. Sadly the GPU is partially dead (artefacts all over the screen, crashes, windows detecting a damaged hardware etc...).

      So I bought an other GTX1070 MXM on ebay, which was used in a Vortex G65 6RE before.
      Sadly, when I plug the new GPU in the laptop, the laptop screen stays completly off, but i can use the HDMI port. So i though that I would just have to flash the vbios to the one I was using on the GPU that died, but I couldn't because of a mismatch betwen the PCI Device ID.
      The new GPU ID is : 10DE 1BA1 - 1462 11AF and the previous GPU ID was :10DE 1BE1 - 1462 11AF
      Pretty close right? but the A1 and E1 variation are fcking everything up. I've read that 1BA1 is for non G-sync and 1BE1 is for G-sync. I've also read that the G-sync variation is not part of the card but is an external part no on the GPU board.

      So now I'm wondering what can I do : is there a way to force the vbios flash or to change the PCI ID ? I really need some help here. I'm no expert and I've try as much as I could. Maybe I need to do some vbios editing but I don't really know how to do it and what to do exactly to make this work.

      Thank you very much for your help guys
