Today I’ve had some interesting failure.
I played a game, randomly, while being in a zoom meeting. Suddenly my screen turned off. I thought, oh my GDM crashed again, but no. When i switched tty, no picture. When i rebooted, no picture. My view went onto the pc, and I’m seeing my GPU being entirely off.
Now i thought, maybe it’s my PSU/mainboard/whatever, so i removed it, tried it in another PC. Nothing. Tried a rtx2080 (friends GPU) in my pc, worked perfectly fine. The card just suddenly said goodbye to the world.
I screwed the card apart, but saw no apparent burns or anything. I’m pretty nervous because I currently, understandably, don’t have the funds to buy a new GPU that’s even close to being equal to this card. Is there anything I can possibly do at home, that doesn’t cost a fortune? I sadly don’t have any tools besides 2 screwdrivers.
