Hey everyone,

I was trying to flash my Sapphire 4850 with ATI Winflash. It failed and I restarted ( i know i could have recovered it if I did not restart)

My mobo has two slots and I will have a second pci card ready in a couple of hours. The thing is that whenever I plug the card now, the PC won't even post! If i unplug it and use the integrated graphics, it works. I am trying to flash from DOS, but how can I do it if the computer does not even post when the card is plugged?

Update: If I unplug the PCI power connector, the computer boots but when I try atiflash -i, i get "Adapter not found.

Thanks,

Yes there was. I am running dual monitors and I was having the flickering problem. I needed to flash to set my memory @ 993 for all modes. The funny thing is that I flashed it twice and everything was fine. It is the third flash that went bad.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks,
