    Hello.
    I'm having a problem with a Radeon R9 280x Vapor-X card. Yesterday my hackintosh rebooted suddenly and now, when I start the PC I see the graphic's card BIOS screen instead of the Gigabyte Motherboard BIOS. See the attached picture.
    If I disconnect the card and use the onboard graphics card the system boots ok and I see the correct motherboard BIOS screen.
    Could it be a problem with the bios card? I even tryed with "second bios" button of this ATI card but nothing changed.

    Now I'm looking to re write bios rom on the card. Any advices?

    Thank you all.

    You can flash another bios with vbe7. It will correct it if its bios issue but it looks like card is going faulty i think memory. If so edit the slower reference clocks.

    Is there a way to replace memory or should I use the card as a key ring? :(

    You could try flashing the bios yes but i think the memory chips are damaged by the look of the stripes

    they are the most common issue of dying vram
