eVGA 780i SLI - Code FF, No beep, No display

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, putting simply what the title says.. My eVGA 780i has recently started giving me problems.

A few weeks ago, it started turning itself off after random periods. From what I could find, overheating wasn't the issue here. The random periods soon changed to turning off a mere second after pressing the power button. I never got a chance to fix it, as now all it does after I turn on is show code FF, it doesn't beep and nothing displays on screen. The fans still spin up as usual, and I can hear the hard drive spinning up too, however it sounds like it keeps going through the "spin-up" sequence.

I have tried resetting the CMOS to no avail.

Is this an RMA? Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you.

Instant FF without going through any other codes is a dead board.
