Hi. I have been stupid enough to flash my MXM card with a bios with the wrong ID. I'm not sure why this happened as i modified a allready working 6990M bios and only turned down the core clock from 715 to 680. Somehow doing this changed the ID and I now have ATIFlash stating "no adapter found". I've read a article made by a user on this forum by the username svl7 - Recovering a notebook GPU from a bad flash Hopefyllu this user is still active as I would really want to know what programmer he used, and where he got it. Or let me buy a working chip with the M8900 680/900 Hynix bios on it. Also read some post about shorting Pin 1 to 8 to bypass the flashchip, but that did not work. May be this is just for desktop cards. Really hope @svl7 sees this or maybe someone who knows him can relay this message. In advanced, thanks! Best regards Liquidqtip, the dude running on Intel HD3000 because of stupidity...
Solved, see the "edit" for details. So... I just had the glorious idea to mod a very old beta vbios of an 6970m ES and try it on my card... but now there's one big problem, my system won't POST anymore. The SCROLL an d CAPS leds are blinking, which means the GPU is preventing the system from POST. ... and since it doesn't POST I can't even blind flash the card. So, my guess is, the card is still ok, but the vbios fails completely. (I don't think the card is dead...) Anyway, the only way I can think of to solve this, is putting the card in a system with 2 GPUs (e.g. M18x). Do you think such a system would boot with this card and allow it to be flashed? __________________________ EDIT: Successfully reprogrammed the serial flash memory chip which stores the VBIOS, more details about the whole procedure can be found here: Recovering a notebook GPU from a bad VBIOS flash | Tech|Inferno __________________________
