Will oven resolder possibly work on "not detected" 8800gts?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I have the chance in the next 20 hours to get an 8800gts for a pretty good price. The owner says the fan spins on the card and it appears to have power but it is not detected in windows. Is there any chance reflowing this card will make it work? I need to know soon. Quick replies will be thanked with rep. Thanks!

You could try and flash the bios, and yeah, that could work.

Yeah, but there will be issues depending on whether he is using nvidia or even the same card

Windows detects CPU's like this too. I put an x6 into a mobo I didn't flash to the current bios.


Windows read it as AMD Phenom unknown proccesor and with a not detected thing yield sign.

I just recently baked my 8800GTS (G80) and it restored it to full working condition. You can't hurt anything so why not try it?
