  • Video Card Kaput--Must be a bad joke

    Never seen this, but just as I was getting into this game, my ATI 9800 pro died. The power connection burned out, melting 0ne of the four connectors, and blackening the wire leading to the rest of the vid card.

    I wonder if anything can be done to fix a problem like that. Any thoughts?

        You'll probably have better luck in the Hardware/Software forum instead of the EVE Online forum, so I'm gonna move this thread there...

          You could try some intricate splicing wire junk, but if u have the budget, i would buy a better card.

            Yeah, once you've melted power pins, chances are you burned a good chunk of the circuitry out as well, and there's probably very little you can do to fix it. Think of it as the cosmos demanding you upgrade your PC ;)

                  Ugh...

                  That's what everyone kept telling me: "ATI doesn't have driver problems anymore." "ATI's support and customer service are a hundred times better than they were a few years back!" "ATI's the bestest now."

                  So I got one (after avoiding ATI for years after getting burned on several video cards years ago).

                  Fooey.

                  ATI still has crappy drivers, crappy support and crappy service.

                  Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

                    Agreed. I still buy ATI though, because trying to understand the nVidia tech specs is like trying to read Martian Chinese.

                      You mean Mandarin Chinese? The most widely spoken language in the world? =P

                      Just heard a news article about how english schools are tecahing mandarin as their second langauge now, because it is so widely spoken.
