GPU may be fried. HELP

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've overclocked my Zotac GTX 460 just a little bit , like 3% on EVGA Precision X and after a while gaming my PC crashed , restarted and it crashed again. Now it won't start up with GPU.
I'vre tried clean drivers setup ( many versions ) , changed SO and all I get is sometimes pc stats up with no GPU ( on board only ) and when I install GPU Drivers screen turns black and display starts searching for signal ( Analog/Digital ).

I really doubt if it overheated...
Sometimes I get error video_tdr_failure and I tried to fix it , but it didn't work. Using onboard GPU now.

GPU-Z





CPU-Z

PS: As my Mobo don't have a video out , I use video from the GPU normaly ( using on board ) . Blowers from gtx460 are blowing wink.gif

Not gunna lie, sounds like you fried the thing.
MY guess is you overloaded the voltage lines on the PCB, melting them. Time for an upgrade buddy! biggrin.gif GTX 460 gettin old anyhow!

PS: Welcome to OCN! Add your rig to your sig, how-to in my sig!

In order of best to least
EVGA < Asus/MSI/Gigabyte/Galaxy < Zotac/PNY < PNY stock cooler < Zotac stock cooler

Here is my suggestion, just from looking at newegg.com

PS: Your rig is not in your sig yet. Follow the instructions to the end. Should say something about editing your signature. Its near the bottom of your profile page.

I would go with an EVGA gtx 760 4gb for next gen games. It will last for a long time.
