Thread: X800GTO2 Flash Gone wrong yet kinda right

    Exclamation X800GTO2 Flash Gone wrong yet kinda right

    Alright guys, I flashed my X800gto2 dual dvi with vivo today to a x850xt. The program I used was a little atuomatic ati flash if you will. The flash went flawlessly with the computer booting up seeing it as new hardware ect. As I was writing a reply to dolf, (casecutter might know him from TPU) for how greatful I was that the flash worked, I looked at my temps in ati tool they read 65C!!!! I set the fan to 100% and temps still kept going up. I then knew the fan must not be turning. I put my finger under the card to see if its spinning. Guess what, not spinning!! I tried to revert back to the old bios through this program that he had created that runs off a bootable CD. It said error x800gto.bin not found. I then tried the manual flash option and typed in the file name ati fash for get the dashes ect. did it correctly and same result. Can anyone tell me how to flash the bios through a bootable cd. Help Is needed very badly as I am using a 80mm case fan to keep the temps at 55C ilde. I HAVE SAVED OLD BIOS TO MY DESKTOP! If that is any help.

    why cant you mod the fan connector and plug it into a molex or a 3pin fan connector?

    It appears that I have fried my fan on the stock cooler. I just found out the x850xt cooler takes way more voltage to power and fried my fan. The x850xt bios sends more vlts through the line and it was too much for my little x800gto2 cooler. Time for a Artic Cooler 5 rev 2. I curently have a 80mm blowing through the fins to cool it temporaroly. comments -Bill

    More likely the fan was just about to go anyway as the BIOS mod only adjusts the voltage to the GPU.

    Well the fan stopped working after I flashed the card so it had to be bios related.
