Question R7 370 Repairing (almost there!)

Hi guys!

I'm trying to repair a dead MSI R7 370 Gaming 4gb GPU. I didn't find any shorts and I think the voltages look good (pictures below). I have experience in electronics, but a first timer in diagnosing PC/GPU stuff.

What would be the next step/measure/check? Maybe flashing the Bios to be sure?

I have more detailed pictures if you need.

Symptoms:
  • Doesn't POST and shows no image, same beeping as if no card is connected
  • GPU LED and FANs turn on
  • Core slowly and slightly warms up (I didn't power on too long, to be safe)
  • PC works with my other GPU (I bought this R7 broken, as a challenge!)
  • Previous owner says it suddenly stopped working, but I don't know if it's the whole story.
System:
  • MOBO: m5a97 evo r2.0
  • PS: Thermaltake tr2 500w
  • CPU: AMD Phenom ii x4 965 BE



Thanks!!!
