Did a GPU on my 4870x2 die?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hey guys - Anyone familiar with the LEDs on the back of these cards? My card has a backplate so they're tough to see, but from what I can tell the middle of three is flashing. Does this mean anything to anyone?

I have something going on, my crossfire overlay no longer shows up, and my performance has been cut in half. From looking at the GPU usage graph in Rivatuner, I see that one gpu is staying at 0%. I've restarted a few times, but that's all I've tried.

If you're still reading, the backstory is this:

I was playing shift. When I heard dinner was ready, I minimized and put the computer to sleep. I don't believe I've put the computer in sleep with shift running before, but I've had no problem doing it with many other games. When I brought it out, my performance was crap. I didn't notice if the crossfire overlay was gone, because I just quit the game, but when I reloaded it I had the same thing.

I still have two adapters in device manager, two in ccc tray menu, but no pulldown menu for adapter selection in ccc overdrive.

Edit - first link on google search says thermal issue?

Try reinstalling drivers? Blow out the dust in the card?

Let's try that.

Edit:

No dice. Light still blinks, still getting 30 fps in two worlds II.

For some reason, now I have three entries in the ccc tray menu.

Remove the 4870x2 clean the slot then reinstall it. Then use system restore. Hope I helped.

I just did a re-seat after I blew the dust out. System restore is disabled Thanks!

If I call Asus and tell them what's wrong, will they give me a 6990?

Silly question but are you still playing in fullscreen? CF doesn't work in window mode

LOL no, they won't

IF it's still in warranty and they replace it, you'll get a 5850/5870/6870.
