New Member 8800gt just died

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello. I'm a new member but I have been reading this forum for years.

After about 3 years of usage my pny 8800gt has just died. The night before it was working fine. In the morning, I turned the computer on and i got no signal. I tried taking it out and putting it back in to make sure that everything is connected properly but still the same. The fan spins but it is not seen in device manager. I tried in another build and it's the same.

Possible causes of this death:
a. I had used compressed air to blow dust off the gpu fan but it worked right afterwards.
b. I had been overclocking my cpu and got a few BSOD's. I don't know if that could affect gpu.
c. It has been really humid lately with all that raining.

I never messed with the clock or voltage of this gpu. Any suggestion on how to get this thing working again? I have been thinking of getting a new gpu but can't afford any decent card.

Seems like it just died of old age. You could try baking it and see if that could fix it though!

Question,
How far did you push the RAM? 8800GT's can brick if you push the RAM too hard.

I have already tried resetting my bios by clearing my cmos. The thing is that it cam back to life for a few seconds just once for a few seconds showing the boot but then just went blank and I had to take it out and boot up with my on board gpu. If I have it installed sometimes the computer would just boot with my on board or it would just be blank.

I was also using dvi to vga converter to my monitor before it died.

I forgot to mention it died after I started using it in my new AMD system.
I got my new system ram and set it to manufacturer specs of 1600mhz.
I never touched the gpu clock or ram speed.

If I bricked it, is there any way to unbrick it?

Try blowing it clean once again and cleaning reapplying Tim.

No, not system RAM. I'm talking about the 8800GT's RAM.
Have you overclocked your 8800GT at all before it died?

A bricked card can sometimes be briefly revived with baking, but only if your problem is associated with solder balls gone bad.

Bake it!



Last resort of course!

What other things can I try besides baking? I want to try baking it but I don't want to run any risk of damaging the rest of my system if the gpu baking goes awry. Are there any issues that might occur from plugging in a baked card? Says some pins are shorted?
