Video Card Dead - Need Advice!

kadepsysonkadepsyson sun prairie, WIPosts: 1,937Member

So my old Nvidia 8800 GTS 640 video card is dead.  The other one I have functions fine, but this one is no longer functional.  So I need some advice and tips on what to do next.  I was considering using a sledgehammer, or even just setting it on fire.

 

I am open to suggestions.

    Bake it in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes, at around 375F.

    You make me like charity

    Using fire isn't actually a bad idea. I've baked a few cards in my day and brought them bake to life :)

    Found a link if you want to give it a shot, you may damage your card... but if its dead already lol, it's not like you can make it much worse.

    So go buy some new 8800GTS 640 and switch the SN sticker and return it.
