6950 with blocks on screen

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently aquired a 6950 graphics card with no cooler on it for £10. I purchased a arctic cooling twin cooler for £15 and slapped it on and it boots biggrin.gif

And thats where the smiles end. The card has 2 wide strips of colour going down the screen and are either white or white n blue ect. When I load windows I get what looks like lego blocks all over the screen.

Ive tried flashing the bios and diffefent ports to which I found the hdmi not to work.

Whats your thoughts guys

Sounds like an unstable VRAM overclock. Download afterburner or Precision X and check what speed it is running at then drop that to the stock for that card.

Ive flashed it to a stock bios thinking that was the issue so its at 800 1250. Windows at idle dont even clock to that.

Well on screen patterns are almost always related to VRAM so it might just be faulty.

Is there any way of fixing it. I dont have easy acess to a decent oven anymore but I do have a heat gun.

What temp do I need the oven to be to bake the card and for how long.
