HD6990 seems to be completely dead..

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Well, as the title says, it seems to be dead. I am using 1000w psu with 34A on 12v, and it just doesnt power up on 1 or 2. It will give no output to the monitor (will stay orange, as if the pc was powered off), and the fan will keep running slow. It does not display or do anything if i do not connect the two 8 pin power connectors.

I have tried to get it recognised by atiflash, but it isnt.

This card is supposed to be new, and i cant see any damage on the surface that indicate it fell on the floor, got wet or anything. It still has the warranty seals on.

Any clues or things to check?

BR

This one:

http://cgi.ebay.es/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250795622422

To try to power up the hd6990, i used one 8 pin connector from that psu (32A) and another 8 pin connector from another PSU (20A)

Anyway, correct me if wrong: If i try to start the gpu with no connectors plugged, i will get a horrible screen telling me to plug the power on it, right?

2 PCI-e connectors on a 1000w PSU rolleyes.gif yikes... Do you have another PSU to try?


I think so, never done it before.

You're doing it wrong. Did you use a jumper for the 2nd PSU? Why are you using two PSU's? You do realize that the two 8 pin connectors is a requirement don't you? The PSU you linked appears to be some generic unit and who knows what kind of power it really puts out. Get a quality PSU, use just one PSU and connect the proper cables. From what you are describing I see no reason that the card would be dead.

The PSU choice with that card really did make a tear come to my eye frown.gif

I'd say ensure all connections are present and plugged in, or try another PSU.

I have a feeling your using 2 6 pins rather than 2 8 pins.

HOLY CRAP! I can't believe you're pairing that ABSOLUTE CRAP PSU with an HD6990.

Wattage means nothing, stay away from that thing.

NOW.
