XFX HD 5770 D4000 light red.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
*Update* I put my Accelero L2 back on and the card runs fine. So either the plate itself was touching something, however I assured the mount-plate was thoroughly free from contacting any mosfets, caps etc.

My guess is the surface of the cooler wasn't contacting the GPU effectively. When I first mounted it, there was a considerable gap between the chip and the cooler. So I made a mod to fix it. There is a possiblity it wasn't good enough.

So when I get time I am going to make a custom mounting plate to replace the one that came with the cooler.


----------------------------------------------------------

I was curious what the D4000 diod lit up red means.

I swapped coolers on my 5770 and it failed to display image. The card is recieving power and everything fine. At least as far as I know.

However I noticed the D4000 diod is lit red.

I searched all over but could only find the codes for the 4xxx series cards.

I am not set on recovering this card, but if I could get it back and running that'd be nice so I can avoid bringing a new GPU to the front of my purchase list.

Any help appreciated.

I could yank all the mosfet/ram heat sinks off and see what happens.

I also check to assure the mounting plate wasn't in contact with anything.

I'll go over the entire card again and try it out.

I have confirmed that there are no issues with heat sinks. I removed everything except the cooler itself, as well as insured that the cooler was in no way contacting other components.

The only thing I can think of is to put my Accelero back on. But I am not sure what difference that will make.

So if the code for the D4000 light isn't discovered I will go a head an order a 6850. I can get em for the same price as a new 5770.

This morning my computer just shut itself down. Everytime I tried to start it back up, it would shut off itself off again in under a minute. Of course I'm always concerned with heat and right now it's close to 100. I opened the side and turned it so I could watch and listen to what was happening in hopes for a clue, but figured it was the video card since the symptoms were close to when my other cards have failed in the past. But my 5770 is only a couple years old.

Anyway, that is when I see the red led on the card. And sure enough when the computer shuts down the red led comes on. So I accessed the net thru my laptop and found this post. I took my time and got the computer out on the floor and gave it a good cleaning inside and out. Then cleaned the card inputs with some small alcohol pads, I put the edge of one on the pcie slot and took a small pocket knife to drag it along the mouth of slot. I unplugged the card power cord from the computer power cord and swapped ends. Then I took a nap. I had really planned on going out to buy another card in the afternoon.

I cleaned up all around where the computer was set up and put everything back together. That was probably a half hour ago, and she is still going strong.

update: that was yesterday and it is still working and the heat is still tremendous, that's for the tips.
