Usually when graphics cards die they go straight into the trash can. If it is a blow up capacitor it takes soldering equipment and a bit of skill in this branch. If it is the graphics chip it's D.A.G (Dump it And Go), you cannot really repair those.

You'd need:

  • The knowledge/skill to identify the broken component
  • An appropriate spare part
  • A soldering iron and a (very) steady hand

But as @Albert F said, depending on what exactly is broken you won't be able to repair it even if you have the skill. Either because you can't buy the component separately and/or because the cost of diagnosis and repair is higher than the cost of a replacement card.

Given the current market, losing a card would be quite bad. 

The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

Forever in search of my reason to exist.

soldering iron, reflow machine, parts, lead (free) lead... 

 

That'll be about 20k $ if I'm not mistaken?

I would have thought that too, but then I learned there are parts, like the VRAM where an iron doesn't cut it - because there's no soldering points on the back side of the card, hence you need a *very expensive* reflow machine, technically. 

I'm actually one of those people who thinks that anonymity is overrated. Some people confuse privacy and anonymity and think they go hand in hand, and that protecting privacy means that you need to protect anonymity. I think that's wrong. Anonymity is important if you're a whistle-blower, but if you cannot prove your identity, your crazy rant on some social-media platform shouldn't be visible, and you shouldn't be able to share it or like it.

Depending on the card, it might be worthwhile to look into outsourcing repair if you can't RMA it under warranty.
