I had this graphic for years and worked flawlessly till i sold my Pc to my friend,who returned card back to me and said that graphic freeze the games and computer! I took this card back and discovered those missing pins!

My quest is: Do i have a chance to fix it and which is best way to do this!
Sorry for my English,didn't use google translate! :)

if pins are missing and they weren't before I'd say your friend messed with it. the second photo looks like the card got toasted. Any warranty ? Could have happened when card was pulled and put back in with power not isolated. ................... never sell things to friends or family. It almost always comes back to haunt you.

Bought this card form China,so no warranty! :(  He cleaned that pc a lot times and pulled out this card several times,so that can be reason to brake them off!!
I still have a question: is it fixable?

I'm thinking that you need to purchase a new GPU.

was it working before you sold the machine ? and did he see/know/use the machine to see that it was working ? and was it him who pulled the card and put it back in ? did you sell him a warranty with the machine ?..... whether either of you want to admit it. it's his fault and you have absolutely no liability. I wouldn't let it bother me. That's my take on it. I know he's your friend but friends make mistakes. Harsh as life is..........
