So I finally found a good deal on a graphics card and upgraded from my 1050 to an Rx 580. However, this graphics card has given me a lot of trouble, since it was an Ex mining GPU with a mining BIOS on it. The seller told me to Run AMD ATI Pixel Patcher and install the drivers, I did, and when I wanted to customize the rgb lighting on the card (Gigabyte Aurous) It couldn't detect it, I tried a few other programs and it said it couldn't identify it because there was an unknown BIOS and it couldn't update. How can I fix the BIOS back to it's original BIOS from the mining BIOS? Thanks!

Is there a switch on the GPU, by which we can change/flip the BIOS settings on the fly, from Mining to Gaming ? Else, you need to Flash the VBIOS (gaming one) for this GPU, IMO.
There doesn't seem to be any physical switch on the card (Gigabyte AORUS) where would it be? Also, how could I flash the VBIOS?

Ok, so how do I actually flash it?
I'm not sure, since I've never done this before, and I lack experience as well. But maybe other forum members might be able to guide you much better.

Anyways, in the meantime, just go through these links. Even though the article is pretty OLD, it contains useful information:

I think this tool will help, as mentioned in the article: ATI Winflash::
