One way to flash a graphiccard which no longer POSTs due to a failed BIOS flash is to put a PCI graphiccard alongside your broken AGP graphiccard, boot using your PCI card (there is a BIOS option for choosing from which card you want to boot) and then finally reflash your faulty card again with the help of the working PCI card.

now im a dumbass cuz ima try flashing agin.

Then I hope your card frys and is unable to be recovered so it will teach you a lesson. :nono:

^ I second that, Stop trying it, don't mess up a freaking 400+ dollar card for a "little gain". Really, see past the bull****, it's not worth it anyway.

Pimp!
