R9 280 RIP?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi! My GPU (R9 280 OC Windforce Gigabyte) was recently crashing a bit. I didn't do anything with it and since yesterday it doesn't want to display anything. When I plug it in, it doesn't even activate the monitor so it's asleep all the time. Fans run normally and pc I think boots normally because I tried unplugging it and running off the iGPU and it worked. GPU when crashed had an artifact of vertical lines. I got it to work a couple times but it still crashes while playing games and it really rarely works. Is there a way to fix it?

GPU that old probably has served it's time.

Artifact and lines are some indications that the core is broken.

One way to temporary solve this is to "reflow" the tin connections by applying hot air.

Ok, thanks for answer. And yeah it served me about 5 years, as I built the PC in 2015. It's a bit sad, cause I'm waiting for rtx3000 but I think I'll leave on iGPU for a couple months as I don't want to buy new gpu now : P 

Thanks for your answer once again. :D
