Hi,,, yesterday afternoon I broke 2pcs of very tiny SMD near GPU die.. my GPU is AMD RX 6600 XT and I'm using windows 11.luckily after that my GPU still working fine... I try to play game like world war Z, shadow of tomb rider, resident evil 3, and so far no problem..
but then I notice something,, I can't wake up my screen after my monitor sleep for more than 10 minutes, I set my pc to auto turn off monitor after 15 minutes by the way.

a minute or two after my monitor sleep I can still wake it up.. but after 10 minutes or more my monitor sleep there is no respond at all,
I tried again repeatedly and it's same result..
and I need to press the reset button then,, it boot normally to windows without any error, but sometimes it will boot to windows and the screen resolution is like back to basic video adapter without any driver installed and appear an error message “Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure”, I check the device manager and my GPU is still there but with yellow exclamation mark. And if I restart it will boot normally and the resolution back to normal again (1920x1080).

is that all because driver error or because I broke the SMDs?
Has anyone experienced this? I really need some advice


I don't have pic from my GPU board but this pic I googled and is the same location as where I broken SMDs
and I test my CPU with several tools and it not showing any problems

Hopefully others can jump in with a good answer as it does seem odd though may well be related. The good news is this can be repaired via soldering and I would have thought very cost effectively at a repair shop. Hopefully it is not the smd's...

Update:

The screen wake up issues has been fixed, I set the value of EnableULPS in the windows registry editor from 1 to 0 and everything went back to normal.. and I haven't fixed that SMDs yet
