GPU has fried, what other damage could of happened? Tags: Graphics Cards Boot Graphics Last response: January 14, 2013 6:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ChipButty January 13, 2013 2:25:41 PM Hello all, So I have a system that shut itself off after being on all day, I fired the PC back up then came back 5/10 minutes later to find it again shutdown but this time would no boot. When I took the card out the 4850 was fried, soldering on the back plate was melted, I could hardly touch the thing. So I removed the card but now the system will not boot at all, could this overheated card of damaged any of the other components? Physically everything looks fine such as the PCIE slot where the card was and the Green light is on the Motherboard but again the system refuses to boot up. The system the 4850 melted is below. Intel® Core™ i3-530 Processor (4M Cache, 2.93 GHz) P7H55-M PRO Motherboard 16GB kit (4GBx4), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-12800mlow profile OCZ ZS Series Power supply - 650 Watt I have no other rig to test the parts in so I'm trying to salvage what I can with some help from this forum.
