FX5900 Ultra (Capacitors)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently enherited a nVidia GeForce FX5900 Ultra from a friend, and the reason he gave it to me for free was because two of the capacitors on the card were kindof messed up, so. He said that if I could have it and whether I got it working or not is on me.

SO, a friends father of mine is going to get the capacitors resoldered on to the points, and if that dosen't work, my main question is if you guys think I can get the card RMA'd. If I send it, and they don't rma it, what happens? Do they send the card back, or keep it.

If they don't replace it for you, they will just send it right back. The worst thing is some companies don't specifically tell you if you got a new one or the same one back so make sure to check those broken caps. They might also just fix the one you send them....

ok, I didn't 100% understand what you said. I understood everything other than

Meaning... to check if they are the same ones as I began with? or... what

and it really dosen't matter if its the same card, just as long as its a 5900Ultra.

Put a little mark on it, and when you get a card back from RMA, you will know whether they sent you a new one, or the same one back.

Ask your friend when he bought it, and if he still has a warrantee on it. Also, I would email MSI first just to make sure you don't waste your money on shipping in return of them not fixing it.

Oh, Lightsource. I meant like check the capacitors to see if they are fixed or not. Lol, they might try to pull a fast one and just give it back to you unfixed!

I have a FX5900 also, but I wasn't aware that they made an Ultra. Are you sure it's an Ultra? I know they made a 5950, but never heard of an Ultra. No biggie, I was just curious if you meant a 5950 or if they did, in fact, make an Ultra.
