I was recently trying out a gpu mining software, after about 10 mins the screen froze and i had to force reboot my laptop.
Afterwards i have been unable to use the AMD card as everytime windows rquests it the screen freezes and the fan speeds up.
I rebooted into safe mode and disabled the AMD gpu and the pc boots fine (going into msconfig "normal boot - base video" works as well), but if i try to enable the amd gpu or update drivers it freezes again.
Next i tried a clone of my ssd i made last week, same issue.
Also tried a fresh installation of windows, Freezes halfway, BSOD stating "THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER"
From my "google/youtube research" it appears to be a soft-brick caused by mining, I then followed a few vids from techpowerup.com where they suggest vBIOS flash to fix this issue. However for my particular card i can't seem to find the correct vBIOS image to flash.

I'd appreciate any help in fixing this issue or helping me find the vBIOS,
Thanks in advance!
