Hi, my GTX 780 suddenly died without notice (it happened mid-game and the PC just shut down).  The motherboard cannot detect the card (no VGA error code).  The motherboard is OK and I am currently running an even older card on it.  I have also tried it in another system.  The GTX 780 is so dead that not even the fans are working.  I've taken it apart, looked for any obvious burn outs, cleaned it etc but still nothing.  I've been going over it with my multimeter but can't seem to find a break (tbh, I'm not too sure where to look).  I suspect a fuse has gone, but I can't find much or any information online. 

 

It's a Palit GTX 780 Super Jetstream.

 

Obviously, due to the current shortages I can't even buy a worthwhile replacement.

 

If somebody could give me a hint to what the problem maybe I would be grateful.

 

Thanks.

Any warranty left?  If not I would still contact the company to see if they will repair for a fee.

Nah, I brought it in 2013 and I think it only had 2 (maybe 3).  Maybe a good idea to contact them, though.

Can't hurt!  Way to nice a card not to pursue it, they may have a repair program.

I emailed them and gave them my story.  Hopefully they will pity me, since they can't even sell me a replacement. :)

Did you purchase it direct or from a vendor?  I went to their site under support they say if not direct take to where you bought it.
