Exclamation 5700 Inno3d Ultra

I have this card and hope I'll get it up ! I hope is a bios related problem. I badly need the original bios for it or a modded bios, I don't care. I also need the program that flashes the bios. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Defect: Card displays 0 and _ allover bootup screen and is fine in windows until the drivers are installed, after that it is a total mess !

Thanks a lot !

I very much doubt it is a BIOS problem. Either the thing is overheating, or the drivers are bad, or the card has had a visit from the "rooted fairy".

Do you know what the temps are like? Keep in mind the thermal contact between the HSF and teh core could be bad, there could be crusty white stuff in a little blob, and it could need re-gooping or re-clamping. Check carefully what the temps are like on it.

If its a "rooted" problem, it would sound like the memory is past it.

OK thanks I will check on it. This is what happened: my friend was playing and he left the room for 5 minutes when he came back the image of the game had artifacts, the game was stuck and he pressed reset. Since then the vcard is not working.

I had almost the exact same problem with an old ATI card of mine, except mine would be full of artifacts on boot and loading UNTIL the drivers were installed.

Eventually I replaced the card (stock settings and tried reinstalling the driver) I just assumed that the card was dying and I retired it before it died completely on me.

You may wish to also try the video card in another machine or try purging the video drivers from your current system

I had a little time today and the contact between HSF and core was very very bad lots of crusty yellow stuff. I am cleaning now and apply some paste, I will tell you how's going

I would definately use some Arctic Silver 5, and make sure you use some silicon degreaser to remove <all> of the crusty crap. It doesn't surprise me to be honest.

When you are doing the job, you can use a viscus goop like AS5. Fact is in a manufacturing facility, using sloppy goop, and getting a flat even finish on it, to all corners of the die would be a hard job. The goop used in production is mostly spread by the force of the heatsink being bolted down.

It usually makes a big difference replacing that rubbish.

It wasn't a brilliant card anyway probably better off being dead, now there's an excuse to get something more powerful.
