DEAD THREAD: Possibly dead GPU. Looking for advice..

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I have come to terms with my 1060 possibly being dead.

I have checked if my cables are properly placed and the card is a little over 2 years old.

  • The card does not turn on.
  • Onboard video works, but does not work if the card is plugged into motherboard.

Could this be a indicator that the cards still is saveable?

 

The 1060 is being detected by devicemanager, afterburner and the Nvidia website as of now.

Was it working before hand, or did you just put it into a system? (Did your computer suddenly stop working?)

It was working fine ane it's been in the system for about 2 years. And rarely had bad experiences with it. System boots up fine and works, but the graphics card seems dead.

Before you pronounce it dead, DDU and reinstall drivers. If that doesn't work, reflash the VBIOS. If that doesn't work, it's probably dead

What brand?  Most have 3 year warranties.

Attempted the CMOS reset and didn't seem to do anything, might've not done it properly. 
Currently trying the DDU instead of removing with devicemanager right now.

I've done a proper CMOS reset and it didn't do much.

Currently looking at how to flash vbios as a SenpaiKaplan recomended.

Try it in a different slot if you have more. Also, try it in a different system.

Thanks for the tip, but sadly cannot do that. Have a good day though.

There has been a interesting change. I've learned how to force the pc to display from integrated graphics and I can see that device manager shows the gpu as connected, but the fans aren't spinning.

Thats normal. As for flashing the vBIOS: https://forums.tomshardware.com/faq/how-to-upgrade-your-gpu-bios.1957251/
