i have the title graphics card. it has a mini hdmi connector and comes with an adapter. when i inserted the adapter in, it broke the pins inside and some of them got interconnected. I opened it up and seperated them with a sharp edge screw driver.

Now the problem is it isnt gives out display.. mobo is running on onboard vga while pcie card being inserted..

any ideas or my gpu is dead??

Good chance that it fried when you were messing arouind with the screwdriver. Try to take the card out of the computer, uninstall tyhe drivers, then install the card and see if you get a display on it.

actually i removed it and then separated all the pins that were touching each other.... and after trying it in and out several times it gave output one or two times but now its gone permanently... i think its not the drivers as even bios isnt detecting it

Try clearing the CMOS and check for display output

You can do it that way, you will need to unplug the machine and hold down the power button for 30 second to drain all the caps.

It might work, that's what I had suggested. Resetting BIOS = Clearing CMOS. Its the same thing, do the process I mentioned with the battery out.

I've taken apart every GPU I've ever owned to put on better paste or cooling. Never had warranty work denied.
