Heh, so i was wondering if i could fix my semi-broken GPU that for some reason starts to crash after the drivers instal... So my idea was to heat the GPU die so it would remelt the solder between the die and the board, but i don't want to do it right of the bat, anyone else got any idea what could be done to fix it. Let's start with ones that don't require physical stuff, and then let's get to the physical stuff.
Things I've done:
Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers on a different card of the same series (No results)
Tested the card in different systems, 3 to be exact (no results)
Installed the drivers with the card in the system, it gives me a perfect picture before the drivers but after the display drivers are installed, it crashes (So no results)
Inspection over the whole PCB to see if there is any physical damage (no damage)
Modded the vbios to have lower clocks and lower VDDC, yes i checked comparability (No results)
Tried running the system off of integrated graphics, 2 systems. The GPU bricked the PC after it stopped loading into windows (So no results)
What I've noticed is that the GPU slows down the Windows loading time, i haven't times it but it is slower than it should, if I'd have to say how slow I'd say about 5x slower.
So yeah, throw me possible fixes and if they don't work, give me advice on how to resolder the GPU die...
