My 2.5 year old Palit GT1030 graphics card not detecting since few days.
it gave some trouble for last 6 months time to time.
When I turn on the PC it was working fine but after few minutes monitor goes black and PC produces device unplugging sound. Then it comes back and repeat this process until 30 to 60 minutes.
I tried reinstalling drivers, reinstalling windows, cleaning the PC components without any success.
Then I tried to live with that problem but it suddenly stopped detecting anymore.

I connected the card into another PC and it also doesn't recognize it.
So i decided to disassemble the card and clean it. I also replaced the thermal paste.
But it doesn't give any hope.

Do you think the card is dead? Is there anything I can do to revive it?

full system spec? include brand and model of the psu

test another gpu on your system?
I thought you could see my signature.. btw here is my spec

Intel Core i5 4590 3.30 GHz, ECS H81H3-M4,
2x4GB Kingston DDR3 Dual Channel RAM,
Palit GT1030 2GB GDDR5, AOC 2080W 18.5" IPS monitor,
Sandisk SSDPLUS 120GB, 2x 500GB Toshiba HDDs,
Corsair VS450 450W 80+ PSU

i don't think my psu is faulty 'cause other components doesn't give any trouble. I have used a lot more power hungry radeon rx260x before on this system while gt1030 only require 30watts
 
What might have changed since all was well?

Try the card from the other pc.
If it works, your GT1030 is likely dead.

If the new card also fails, you could have a motherboard issue.
Reset the bios and see if that changes anything.

thanks for the response.
but i don't currently have another card to test.
i tried connecting this card to another PC and it did not work

if the card is dead is there anything i can do to make it work again?
like replacing a faulty capacitor.. btw i don't see any exploded parts on it :cautious:

See if it is under warranty. if not, troubleshooting and repairing a GPU is usually not worth it, especially not for such a low end card.
No it is out of warranty period.
And i want to repair this card since I don't have money to buy a new one soon.
Brand new gpus are getting more and more expensive because of the rise of usd.
currently same gpu, which is gt1030 cost 17,500Rs here in sri lanka while my monthly salary is under 35,000Rs :(
