Corrupt firmware on IR3

Unread postby corruptIR3 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 4:56 pm

it was fine this morning and then My RM10's and DG5's would dissappear and textport would not init from the bios

when I just boot up and run /usr/gfx/gfxinfo its all blank

On on of the two sets of DG5-2's and RM10's sometimes it shows a RM10

but no it gives Me this over gfxinit

Graphics board 0 is "KONAL" graphics.
Unmanaged 104x50363
Display has -2119374932 channel
90 GEs (of 759887520), occmask = 0x81be07f0

Xvc info not available for unmanaged boards

(is this correct)
when I run /usr/gfx/KONA/bin/ireeprom -e - it says erased
ireeprom -c it says erasing KONA EEPROM video combination

ireeprom -r -f test -p0

Everything was good until I accidentally took the disks out for dust cleaning of the bay and missread the lablels and got semi-support for the IR3 and thats when IR2E started showing up in hinv and all the troubles started everything got random

Please Help ??
