I have an issue with my PC since yesterday. It suddenly shut down and since then i wasn't able to power it back up. Did a number of tests, and my current conclusion is the video card died, but i might be wrong.
PC won't power up with the "faulty" video card plugged/connected to the 8+6pins: it gives like half of second of "life" and shuts down.
PC works fine with the integrated video.
PC works fine with a different video card.
PC starts with the "faulty" video card plugged but not connected to the 8+6pins. (video card fans are spinning)
Tried a different PSU with the "faulty" video card plugged/connected to the 8+6pins, no response.
Worth mentioning, it happened before, about 1month ago...after messing a bit with the cables inside, it came back to normal and worked fine until yesterday.
Unfortunately I am not able to try the video card in another system.
Are there any other tests I should do ? Is it safe to assume the video card is broken and send it for warranty/service ?
