Hi everyone i have a problem with a Sapphire HD 5750 Vapor-x , until today the card was used with a HD 6770 bios and i worked fine (no problems) , but i wanted to sell the card and i tried to flash it agin with the original bios and i started flashing it with atiflash , the flash went well no errors , and after restart i wasn't getting signal from the video card, and i said to myself : something didn't went well , and i'll use the old trick with the onboard video card set as primary to fix it , so i booted up to my usb stick and i typed the command : atiflash -f -p 0 bios.rom , and i got the error Adapter not found , then i tried atiflash -i and i got the same error , i think i might corrupted or something like that the video card bios chip , and i searched on google about this error (Adapter not found) and saw on a forum that this error means i bricked the card , and read someone had the same problem and for him the commands atiflash -ai 0 -scansii , -amtel ,-sst worked but for me not i was still getting that error .
Is there any method to fix this problem ? And i still have warranty on it is there any chance to they will fix it or give me a good one?
Have you tried to reflash it with the 6770 bios (maybe the stock rom is corrupted...)
Physically unninstall the 5750, Start with onboard GPU, reboot then reinstall the 5750 in his slot...
Also, i had same problem with a 3850 and Clear CMOS was enough to reflash it (basically just cut the power to reset all maybe working too)
In command line, run atiwinflash -unlockrom 0 followed by atiwinflash -f -p 0 bios.bin/rom
Found that: http://www.overclock.net/t/593427/how-to-unbrick-your-bricked-graphics-card-fix-a-failed-bios-flash#post12185153 Also, i precise that you do that to your own risk and in last manipulation ONLY...
I also had flash a 5750 but to a 5770 bios and returning to 5750 was easy, but i had save the real bios, not one on GPU-Z database per example... (for info: wasn't a vapor-x edition)
is that 1gb or 512mb version of that card you have, cause they have different bios...
For warranty, i really doubt that they will fix that for you as it's probaly not an invisible mods... that leaves some trace of CMOS write/erase so i think they will see that this card had failed because of a wrong flash but you always could try, don't know sapphire policy, maybe they wouldn't see it and replace/repair it...
For the Warranty, it was voided when you flashed it and ceased to work, so sending it back is no longer a option.
If the card no longer responds at all, the only option is a manual BIOS flash, which pretty much has to be done at the manufacturer's repair center. And you'll be stuck paying for it.
I tried everything i could , but without results all i was getting was : Adapter not found . And i also noticed a weird thing , if i have the card plugget in and the onboard is the primary my pc takes alot to go in to the bios screen (about 30 sec) or to boot up on usb stick ( i tried all of this on a gigabyte g31m-es2l ) . On my asus p5q premium is more weird i set a hd 4550 set as primary and the hd 5750 as secondary and after i turn my pc on its shuts off after about 5 seconds and after i remove the hd 5750 everything works. My doubt is mabye the bios chip is really fried (or something on the card) not corrupted or something like that .
Anyway i'll try with the warranty , maybe i'll be lucky . Thanks to everyone who tried to help me.
And yes this is the 1GB version and i had the original bios from the card (i took it befored to flash it).
Maybe you could try to flash the bios again with something else?
I should state that doing the kind of stuff you guys are talking about really goes way outside my territory of messing with stuff.. so I have no idea if that utilty will work.
The card does not responds at any command ,all i was getting was "Adapter not found" is like i don't have a card there. Anyway i already sent it to the warranty .
Good news , they gave me the money back , all 120$.
