Is my GPU dead?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So yesterday my computer started crashing, and when it did it make quite a bit of noise through my speakers. Today it happened again but GPU-Z only sees my iGPU now. I’m running a gtx780 which was bought on release so it’s fairly old I’d say.

 

I tried booting into safe mode and deleting the drivers using DDU. After that I installed the drivers again but my screens turned black (which usually happens when installing gpu drivers) but they wouldn’t turn on anymore. After restarting they did turn on after like 3 minutes but just went back to only detecting my iGPU in GPU-Z. Turns out it sees my GTX 780 in device manager but yeah it doesn’t utilise it I think. I did install older drivers which I had stored on my HDD since I feel like it wouldn’t have mattered in this case.

 

Anything else I can try or is it just dead? Device manager shows code 43.

did you try downloading the drivers through device manager instead of off nvidia's site or geforce experience?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Yeah I currently have the newest drivers installed (Installed through the site but device manager confirms this).

It's weird how it happened so sudden. I was just playing a game and suddenly it crashed and booted up in 800x600 res only detecting my iGPU even though my monitors are connected to the dGPU, though I'm experiencing weird blue artifacts on my screen right now.

i'd say try pulling the GPU out your system, give it a propper cleaning, put it back in, and verify that all cables make propper connection.

 

may be as simple as a bad connection somewhere, may be a dead GPU.

I am leaning more towards she's dead chim.

Turns out, my PC doesn't start at all now. Literally nothing happens when pressing the power button. Feels like I shorted something out even though I didn't really touch my motherboard and always ground myself. Isn't it possible that my PSU is dead?

 

EDIT: Nvm the PC starts up

Did this, still doesn't work. Hasn't changed anything unfortunately :( I get these weird blue aftifacts around my screen, not sure if that means anything.

thats a dead GPU... (or memory, that is..)

 

maybe you can squeeze some extra life out of it by underclocking it slightly, but that's pretty much all you can do.

MSI afterburner doesn't see my GPU unfortunately. But yeah I figured as much :( Anyway I appreciate the help, time to find a new one.

Code 43 typically means a hardware issue, so sounds like its probably your GPU. you might want to test the voltage coming out of your PSU to your GPU, if you dont have a multimeter then test the card in a different PC. 

 

If it is dead, its typical over time to get dry solder joints. You could try removing all the plastic, heatsink/fans, thermal pads, etc...and try baking it to reflow the solder.

Typically its about 10 minutes @ 180C/360F in an oven, then let it sit for about 20+ minutes to cool before putting it back in the PC.
