Probably dumb question but here goes (BRICKED 1080 FE)
Soooo, I was leak testing my computer (I know this thread has poop written all over it) and.... my Nvidia GTX 1080 FE, when plugged in, fails to allow my computer to even post, not even allowing the entire computer to power on. During leak testing, I disconnected the 8-pin power connection on the GPU, so I thought it would be fine. I had a tiny leak that I fixed and a very small trace of water on the GPU that I cleaned off, thinking that all would be fine. To my surprise, the computer would not power with the 8-pin connected... I've tried to reflash the card, but NVFlash tells me that there is no Nvidia GPU detected.
My question, does anyone know if there is any sort of fix for this issue? The leak was as small as a droplet of water that I'd cleaned off, but, again, the GPU seems to be fully busted. I'm desperate at this point to not throw away ~$700 dollars, so I'm willing to try just about anything. Thanks
