So after 6 years hard work my Quadro fx2500 has started playing up

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys im a proud owner of a dell m90 workstation and after 6 years the graphics card has started playing up, the screen affiliated and went black, booted up a few times after this but not for long. When I try to boot it up the screen stays black but everything else seems to work fine. I can hear the windows load up sound etc...

I took it apart, removed the heat sink and powered it on for a while till the gpu got really hot then applied lots pressure on the gpu core in efforts to re solder / fix micro fractures it back onto the pcb.

This seems to work for a period of time usually 2-3 days but then the original problem will come back. Is there a long term fix for this as it seems the card might still have some life left in it.

Any help appreciated

Look up "video card baking" it's the same principle as what you were doing, and may give you a little longer, but if it's dying then it's dying and there isn't a reliable way of making it not die.

Yeah, baking is a far better method for fixing micro fractures. Success rates are high, from what I've seen, too.

You don't want to overheat a GPU while it's running under any circumstances; it'll only lead to further degradation.

I don't know the market for quadro cards but I don't know if would try and replace your dead 6 year old card with another 6 year old card. You're buying a 'new card' anyway so you may as well see what would be the best bang for your buck for your needs rather than choosing a card just because it's the same one you had before.

100gbp may not be worth it to revive a Core 2 Duo laptop.

Are there no cheaper gpus that could run in your motherboard?
