PLEASE HELP My 8600GT is dying

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Okay, I know this is an old card but it was bought new in 2009. At the very moment now, Im getting severe artifacts while in POST to the point where I can only enter windows in safe mode (with networking ofc). A normal bootup to windows jus gives me bsods, system restarts, lockups and crap.

My card is a XFX 8600GT XXX edition, no overclocking but it has had fan issues that made the card run as hot as 109 C in game and throttle. There are 6 capacitors blown since I have this problem, (there were 4 before but no prob). These capacitors are all the blue and silver top versions. I was thinking on giving it the oven treatment but this seems like the capacitors just need changing but idk how to do that I only know its possible to.

Give me your feedback guys before this thing really dies (although I plan to change the card anywho but I would love to have a secondary card for my games incase that change fails and its near impossible to think about buying another one at this moment)

you could bake it and try to remove the busted capacitors, then bake it again and fit the new ones.

yeah i guess i have no choice now but to replace it. i decided to get out of safe mode and jus used the onboard and keep working but now when i try to change the bios back to the vid card, only onboard works no matter what, its as good as dead now frown.gif only the fan spinning on it XP


But what you guys think i should change to to go with my processor and my PSU too cuz at the moment with this ****ty PSU, any card that needs even a 4 pin connector is out of the question so i can only use green cards

If the caps have flopped it too there's not a lot of point trying to repair it imo.
