Hello! I just flashed my gpu’s BIOS with a bios version on Tech Powerup, and after doing so, my screen is all distorted and glitchy. This is the first time i’ve encountered this, not sure if the gpu is done for, or if there’s a way to fix this, thank you! GPU is a Radeon XFX RX 480 4Gb

Well, according to the information that video horse was taken I assume that you bought a partially dead GPU.
U can google it: video chip reflow
Well, I can recommend u to visit some sort of service center, in order to check capacitors and contact with the chip ( processor)
Maybe if you warm it up, it will work for a while. You will need again and again (problem will rise up from time to time; delay interval between 1 week - infinitely, if your GPU a lucky one)
Otherwise - it's dead((

Hi!
Mmm, try to reinstall the GPU driver.
After that, turn your PC off, disconnect from the power supply up for about 30-40 sec.
If the problem still persist -> roll back to the original BiOS version (check the manufacturer page)
Have you bought GPU as brand new from the shop, or as used from the marketplace (hands)?
Hello, I bought the gpu used, but sadly the person who sold it to me failed to say it was used for mining, and that the drivers wouldn’t install. I found a pretty good fix, but it wasn’t a permanent fix, So when i was doing maintenance on my pc, i guess it reverted itself sadly

What is the reason you flashed the BIOS on your GPU?

Did you have any issues before doing it?
the gpu was refusing to install drivers because without my knowledge it had been used for crypto mining, so in hopes of fixing that I decided to flash it, i had found a temporary solution but i guess something went wrong this time

That's what I had suspected a little way down the line, I felt like I was preserving a dead body trying to keep that thing alive lol, just glad it lasted me this long. I may just try to find a new gpu amidst this shortage, but it's worth a shot, thank you so much!
