Bad V-Ram on GPU.

BotherRed

I have a 3090 with a Bad V-Ram on it.

Are there any Reputable repair shops that I could perhaps send it to to get fixed? I just don't really belive that my town would have one, but I haven't really looked for one. I can see if there is one.
But do you all have someone who you know would fix it and not damage anything?

Depending on the make and model, and if it was purchased new from a reputable retailer it may still have a warranty. As for fixing the issue, you'd need to find out the exact issue it has and send it to someone who specifically fixes that issue. GPU repair is pretty niche. Not a lot of options, if any at all.

I'll get the details later, as I'm head to bed right now. But I did buy it from NewEgg

Sorry it took so long.

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3090 
Bought from Newegg, claimed to be Refurbished. MSI is the co. that made it.

Ehh, refurbished may be an issue. You'll need to check through newegg or with the seller if it still has a warranty. MSI most likely doesn't have one anymore, if it's been previously RMAd or sometimes they can be a little stingy with you not being the original owner.

That's what I was afraid of. 

 Genuinely, I'd happily pay LTT to fix it and turn it into a video or something because there's no other place I trust enough to do this.

he should be able to find out exactly what is wrong.. if it's the vram, or the pads beneath them, or pads under the core... etc..
