Sapphire 4870 issue - fixed


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I was having problems running BS for a while and finally found a fix so wanted to let everyone else know. Apologies if this has been posted before but a search did not throw this up.


Symptoms: I would happily be running BS but after an hour or so my PC would freeze and I would get a screen full of squares and have to manually reboot. Sometimes it would be quicker. I initially thought heat but that was not the answer.


Resolution: I had an ATI Sapphire 4870 512mg card. It needed its bios updating. Take a look at the following thread.




I would strongly recommend anyone updating their graphics card bios to do it through DOS outside of windows as you may end up turning your graphics card into a brick.


Hope this helps


Happy flying :pilotfly:
