burnt gigabyte gv-6870oc-1gb

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello to everybody.
I try not to bother and sort out things by reading in the forums and searching the internet for solutions,but now I'm stumped!!
I bought the above card a while back for my sons rig, and it was coming along quite well for a few months.
A month ago my son called up telling me that his pc stopped suddenly.
After going through it verdict was that his card had died , and there is where my trouble started.
I gave him mine ( one of the few remaining 4870x2 that to my knowledge are still ok) and I settled for an old 2900xt I had lying around ,
but unfortunately I couldn't find my reciept.
So I opened the card to see , just out of curiosity , what had happened.
It seems that to the right of the gpu ,after the vrm's , there are 2 chips that have only " 1587 PDVD" written on them, and one of them is burnt.
After using up quite a few hours trying to find out more about this chip, I came up emptyhanded.
So now I am coming to you guys for any help I can get.
I am uploading a picture so that you can see what I am talking about.
The 2 chips are just right of the aluminum heatsink , on the lower part , both 8-pinned .
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
P.S. If the Moderator thinks that my post should be in another section , I apologize in advance for the mistake , just inform me where to post it and I will .

I beleave those chips are responsible for controlling the ammount of voltage enters the power distribution/vrm of the card.

Looks like its just burned out, can be from overheating or just a faulty part.

Thanks for the info.
If you know what exactly they are, where to buy them or how to find an equivalent ,please inform me.
I understand that I may be a bit impatient but I'm running out of options.
Again thank you

Hello,

I do not know here to buy the replacement part, but there is a big chance other parts like the gpu chip itself died.

Just because that one thing is broken down doesnt mean the whole card is bricked.

I think its just best that you find a cheap alternative card, maybe look on second hand selling websites like ebay

Some vendors do not require a receipt, just a serial number. Call them up and see what they say

Thanks both prescotter and Powermonkey500 for your replies. I will contact Gigabyte amd see what they tell me.
I just wanted to see if the card is fixable,mostly to satisfy myself I guess .
If anything comes up though , I won't give up yet.
