hi guys 3 month ago i bought an ASUS Geforce GTX 550 Ti 1 GB card that worked fine and I played all the latest games including Max Payne 3, Mass Effect 3, Alan Wake, Syndicate, all the settings are maxed out and without any problem but suddenly yesterday when I was browsing the internet my monitor went black and gave me a no signal message then I removed the case and saw that the card fan was not spinning

This is my card

For your concern the PSU I have is a Cooler Master Rs 550, which I bought back in 2010

Things that I did

1- I unplugged the card and tried to use it on my brothers pc. It gave me the same problem no signal and fan was not spinning
2- I plugged my old card GIGABYTE GeForce GTS 250 in my pc it worked fine without any problem

Today I gave my Geforce GTX 550 Ti to RMA they told me that it will take about a week or 2, but I want to know what happened to it as its just 3 month old with a brand new card that has a 3 year warranty. Hope u guys know the problem and maybe can help me out to prevent this from happening again

Thanks
Asif

Sounds like the card took a dump, it could simply be a defective card that just decided to go out early. Also, make sure your case has good airflow because overheating could be one of the causes of it taking a dump. There are many factors, it's just best to RMA it and leave it to the experts that actually made the chips, lol

hi thanks a lot for your time and reply i am deeply sorry for my late response well my casing have a good airflow and when the problem happened i unplugged the card and its not that much heat and i feel like its not a overheating problem and the card did not give me any strange Artefacts or any other symptoms before it busted that’s the most strange thing
