Is it possible to fix a single 9800 GTX?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So recently I've had a theory that one of my video cards has gone bad. When I boot up, instead of a green light appearing, all three, orange, red, and green lights come on. Sometimes it will actually work properly on boot, but I don't know the 1st part of troubleshooting a single component.

What do I do?

Single them out.

Take one out and try to boot. If you boot make sure the Nvidia drivers can detect it.

Then repeat with the other one.

That's what I did to find out the card itself wasn't working. I need to find out how to fix the broken 9800.

Well what exactly is wrong with it?

Can you boot with it?

Do you see artifacts?

Is it extremely hot?

It won't boot, on boot all it does it light up orange red and green, the fan looks like it's ready to spin, but then it stops. Computer doesn't post, and nothing happens. When I force shutdown, the fan looks like it wants to spin again but doesn't.
