Hi,
I recently found an old hdmi splitter and tried connecting it to my PC. I stupidly made the mistake of using the wrong power cable with a higher voltage on the splitter and it immediately ruined my graphics card and computer screen. The graphics card had a burnt smell...
My graphics card is a (or was a...) GTX 1070 and its warranty has ended. I checked and getting it fixed would cost me almost as much as buying one.
Is there any home fix I could do myself? I'm pretty handy with technology and if there was any tutorial or explanation I think I might be able to do it.
 
Have you tried the different outputs of the gpu? Just encase it only killed one output. I don’t know if it’s fixable but I highly doubt it as I expect it will be highly skilled work to find the damaged component(s).

The GPU fans stopped spinning so I'm assuming other outputs wont work 😂
