I think my GTX 460 just died.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got a GTX 460 FPB model off of the EVGA B-stock, my 90 day warranty is still working but I'm just wondering if it's the card or another piece of hardware that is causing the issue. My computer starts up with no issues, but the graphics card won't let any images display on the screen, also when I turn on the computer my graphics card fan is running at 100%. I tried switching pci-e slots, but that didn't work and I also tried switching what cables I was using from my power supply on it.

I've only had this card for about a month, it's factory overclocked at 720mhz, and I haven't touched any of the settings on it. I'll take a picture of the card in a few minutes, but I'll post this first so you guys can read it.

Is there any other tests I can perform before I send it in to make sure it's the card? I don't have any other computer hardware in my house besides what's in my computer to be honest.

Try a different DVI cable and port. If it still does not display anything when you turn on the computer, the GTX 460 is likely dead. RMA time.

Alright I'll try that, the other thing though is that the fan is starting up at 100% it sounds like, I never set it at that before..

Edit: Yeah the other DVI port isn't working either, I'm contacting EVGA support right now to make sure that I ship it right so I don't end up shipping it wrong or something and be out of $100...
