post #51 of 92
Im not gonna read the whole thread, but did you try with a different PSU or PCIe line..? The test card that worked, did it use the same lines as the "faulty" 680..?

I certainly know that sick feeling.

the psu is pretty new still, has always had a nice grounded socket, the psu tester I have shows all green, but that isn't really reliable is it... haven't had anything break since I originally build this rig. The previous cards worked fine, and the other one of them that I sold to a friend is also still working fine.

So he came across the one guy whole will ask him the basics, because nobody ever misses something the first time around and me being me, figured, make sure you have started at the beginning. RSOD can be cause by driver issues. Has he tried a clean install of driver to see if it does anything? No. If Yes, move on to the slot the card is in in the machine. Still dead? Move onto PSU. Could the Sokets on the PSU be dead, cables ect..Still dead? Try Mobo BIOS. Still dead? Everything else...

You get my point... I have a list I work down every time. If you get to the bottom. RMA.

Just as a final point, have taken the BIOS battery out and discharged the board to clear BIOS/CMOS?

the other card is a pci-e card that doesn't require external power connectors, the old card works fine in any of the pci,e slots. I did try another psu when I took the card to another pc.

Just for the record JTHMfreak EVGA would send him to the retailer also if it was still in a 30 day return policy. Most of the time you will get a card back right away and not have to wait. Now a 680gt most likely not in stock but its my point this is not a brand thing I have had evga send me back to the store so much fail in this thread!
post #57 of 92
I will say that EVGA's warranty, at least for anything lifetime warrantied is stellar. my condolences friend for your dead 680. thats quite alot of green to plunk down on a video card and have it fail weeks later. at least your card completely crapped out. my 570 gtx will post with the pc but every once in a great while just decides at random times to NOT display video no matter how doggedly i try. After i read your first few posts i had noticed you had already covered the possibility of it being mobo, or psu or even driver since it wont even post. sorry again bud, hope gigabyte doesnt hang you out to dry.

Btw guys, the GTX680 the box when you purchased it, is it taped closed? is it supposed to be? are there any seals by default on the gigabyte boxes?

Mine had no seals or anything, basically the box could have been opened at the shop and the guys could have been playing with it there, I recall the box appeared to me like it had been opened before as the cardboard was a little bit bent on one end, inside.

the static bag doesn't have a seal either just some neutral tape?

Edit: I didn't say anything about it since the card worked, but this seems alarming to me now.

The problem with all that is that when you suggest a clean driver install to a guy who can't get the machine to post, it is like suggesting a flu shot to someone who just took a bullet to the head.

Only reason I went with Gigabyte was that it was the only card that was available at the time and it was the last one they had, and even now they are out of stock on all brands aside MSI. Also EVGA wasn't available at the time they added one card a week later(not in stock, coming), which is the superclocked edition and it costs 10€ more than the gigabyte one, [549€]

http://www.jimms.fi/tuote/02G-P4-2684-KR

I might swich to that model evga if anyway possible.

Be happy you guys live in US where the cards cost 500 USD. Just imagine if you had to pay 550 Euros = 715.82500 U.S. dollars for the reference card, you can nearly get a 690 for that money.
