I think my 6800 broke down

Recommended Posts

Here's my issue.

 

I have a modded 6800gt to 6800 ultra, today i was playing a game and some strange colors started to appear all over the screen, the game crashed and i had to reboot. Then i see that this strange colors are in the POST screen and windows loading screen as well. I uninstalled the drivers in save mode and i can boot into windows, now the problem is when i install the drivers again i cant boot into windows and the strange abjects are all over the screen.

 

If you need some more information feel free to ask.

 

Thanks in advance

Yes, the graphics card is with the clocks of the ultra version.

 

I already thought about the possibility of unmodding it, but i cant find anywhere the bios of the gt version.

 

Btw heres a screen shot of what the objects look like

instead of loading the gt's bios backon, just try clocking it down to the gt's speeds with riva tuner, coolbits, or even ati tool

 

take it back down 350/1000 the gt speeds since that is the only diff between the gt and ultra

 

if it continues, clock down even more, and if it still happens, sry to say, ur card is gone

 

what were ur temps like?

eYe your GPU's RAM is fubar'd. Sorry mate, buy another vid card. Ive had it happen to me twice, once with an X850, and once with a 7800GT. You may get lucky and be able to RMA it, worth a try. Good luck downclocking it, but its probably to late already

I cant install the drivers to use nvtweak and put the clocks even lower. The temps were usually around 60-70º and its not with the stock cooler. Still its probably broken down for good because the graphics's card as been working with this clocks for 2 years.

 

Cuoficr what do you mean by RMA it?

 

UPDATE: i have installed the drivers, but as soon as i activate the graphics card in hardware management i get a black screen and can do anything else except reboot, boot in save mode and disable the graphics card again. :(

I gave up trying to resolve this problem. I think ill buy a new graphics card.

 

Do you think a DX9 is worth buying seeing that DX10 cards are already on the market. Should i wait until the DX10 cards are at around 350€ or buy a DX9 card?
