Cannot seem to flash the card....

Guy contacts me and tells me he has an MSI R9 380 that gives him error code 43 in device manager. He bought the card used and is trying to get it to work. yada yada yada would I be able to try to flash the bios of the card for him. I say sure but make no promises.

Now I have the card and it does what he says, error 43 in device manager, I cannot install drivers. I download many versions of AtiWinFlash, AtiFlash and AMD VBflash. None of them can detect any AMD card. Using a usb to boot to DOS prompt, AtiFlash cannot detect an AMD card as well.

What have I missed? Card dead? GPUz sees something and thinks it can extract the .rom from the card. I thought I would check here before reporting the bad news to the owner.

Thank you!!!
