Is my GPU dead?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was playing Overwatch last night, and my screen went orange (or something like that). So I shut down my computer and just went to sleep.
The next morning, I cannot start up my computer at all. After the BIOS screen, my monitor just stayed black. However, I entered safe mode, and it worked fine. I then proceded to uninstal my GPU Driver, and instal a new 1. I managed to start up, but it only lasted a mere 2-3 min before my screen went black again. I tried again, this time without any driver installed for my GPU, and same thing happened. Screen went black in 2-3 min. Everything else seems fine, though. My display still works if I connect it to my intergrated graphics card. 
Is my GPU dead? 
What else can I do?

try baking it in the oven so the connexions melt and resolidify. you might help it rather than just throwing it in the garbage, then try to sell it like a new.


you might want to be 100 percent sure you card is dead tho before trying that.
