My 9600GT is dying. Can it be saved?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Here is what is happening
[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMYDf6B38A8[/ame]
then I tried to run a video game and the screen went black then got a bsod saying the video driver failed to reset.

So right now I have a 8400GS in that computer

I tried to fix the 9600GT by baking it for about 8 minutes with the oven set to 400F - At first I was looking like it worked but it started artifacting less then a minute after starting a game then about a minute later the screen went black and got a bsod again

So is there anything else I can try to fix it.
voltmod or underclock?, maybe disable some of the GDDR if there is a problem there...

If you've already baked it once....then there's not much left to do. From your video (thanks for posting one, by the way) it would seem that it's not a driver issue and that you've got a legit hardware failure going on. I would recommend hitting it with a driver update anyway, and if that doesn't solve it, then bake it again.

Sadly I don't think it's a driver problem, I have been using 266.58 with that card for a while now and it never had any problems.

All video cards I have owned...

EVGA 7300 GS - still works and is being used
EVGA 7600 GT - dead
PNY 9600 GT - dying
BFG 260 GTX - still working and is being used
Galaxy 8300 GS - in my server where I wanted to use my 9600GT
XFX HD 6850 - my new video card for my main system got it for $134 after rebate and it came with Dirt 3 smile.gif

Yes it can be saved. You just have to flash the Bios to an OEM nVidia card witch is a rebrand of the GT 9600. In this case you have to use an Bios file of an nVidia GT140 512MB biggrin.gif
Download it here: http://www.multiupload.com/NBEB3N832T
Use nvFlash download here newest version: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/Utilities/BIOS_Flashing/NVIDIA/
I preferer the DOS version but you can take the Windows version if you want.
MAKE SURE YOU DELETED ALL NVIDIA SOFTWARE
Make sure the bios file has the same Device ID you can check it and change it to yours just like they did here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=309559
So now just simply flash it to the GT140.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DELETED ALL DRIVERS FROM THE 9600GT
This fixes the problem cool.gif

Sometimes this doesn't work. Don't panic. Put another graphics card in you machine to use your monitor. (so now there are 2 graphic cards in the PC not in SLI rolleyes.gif ) and flash it back to a 9600GT with a bios from here : http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/


Now download the newest drivers on nvidia.com and your done. It's not dying anymore.
If this doesn't fix the problem (witch it does wink.gif ) install Windows 7 freshly

why would this fix it, does the OEM bios have a lower clock?

i suggest not trying different card bios on your 9600. It may cause more problems and not let you flash back to the original bios... The only thing you can do is check if there's any busted caps on your card and maybe try a re-bake smile.gif

No you can really try it it's not another card and you can always flash back to old flash. And isn't it worth the try
