If you registered your card with EVGA, you should have a lifetime warranty on it.

no - I didn't register it - beside that I live in a country outside their warranty territory

You can do a visual check of the card by removing it and looking for leaking capacitors or ones with bulged tops. This is the more obvious problems. For cards several years old due to heating up and cooling down they may create micro fishers in the solider causing it to go bad.Other than trying a different video out slot and or cable. It appears to be buggered. Fabe

I checked it visually and there isn't any deformed part obvious
(The fan works perfectly too)

raya2, seeing as the card is fubarred and you've got nothing to lose , remove the heatsink and fan , pre heat your oven to 150 degrees C place the card in the oven for 3 mins each side , a total of 6 mins turn off the oven and open the door halfway and let the card cool down still in the oven , heating and cooling the card during normal use causes micro cracks in the solder on the board , placing in the oven allows the solder to reflow and seal those cracks , give it a go

If it works, then you'd be lucky... If it burned the card... oh well, it's half dead already...

Several times I've wanted to suggest this but thought members might have thought it to be irresponsible of me.(Not saying it is of you) I found out about this 2 days after I threw away a 7900 GTO and wish I hadn't. It is of course a last thing to try if your sure it's the card. Their are many video's on it on utube. I would suggest following them real close and issue you a WARRING along with DO AT YOUR OWN RISK. Make sure to use all safety procedures and that Mom (or Wife) isn't home at the time. As they might not appreciate using their oven for cooking video cards. Good luck. Fabe

mmm exactly the same images I have now... I must have a dead card too.
seems a lot of people have video cards dying all over the place.

there is a common theme, is there a common solution?
