gtx 275 is dying

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
my gtx 275 is over heating, and detects more then one screen and when i try to start a game or exit one the screen flashes, sometimes losing signal. Anyone have an idea on what to do with it?

The overheating leads me to believe the solder joints are coming apart. Try baking the card, as detailed in many parts of this forum and the rest of the internet. That'll give you the opportunity to clean out the cooler and replace the thermal paste.

Thanks for the reply i was thinking about that but i would have thought i would melt the power connectors, or is there a way to remove them?

I haven't baked a card myself, but from what I understand all that needs to done is that the cooler needs to be removed. Look around for guides, and hopefully someone with experience will post here.

you could try removing the heatsinks and putting new TIM on it and then reseating the heatsinks
