So I bought a R9 270x listed as broken/for parts as a learning project to see if I could fix it. so far I have gotten a very garbled and messed up display on it but only during the first day of me fixing this, ive tried flashing new bios, updating new and old drivers onto it, cleaning it, and I have tried to use a hairdryer as a heat gun but I realized that wouldn’t really work. I’ve also tried to mess around with the system bios to no effect and tried down clocking it only to figure out that it hand no clock on memory and gpu on both Msi afterburner and gpu-z but would have a clock of about 150mhz when checking hwinfo but that didn’t change anything. I believe the card is a visiontek one but club3d and vtx3d make the same dual fan shroud on the one I own but a sticker on the back says vt r9270x so I believe it’s more likely to be a visiontek but I’m not sure. I’ve also tried to clean the card and it’s ports to no effect, I can download drivers on the visiontek bios ive been using but the card in device manager keeps having a code 43 error while gpu-z does read that it has installed the bios so I believe that the card the cant use the drivers. I’ve pretty much run out of options at this point but I want to see if the community here can come up with some possible fixes to this gpu, I really want to see if I can get this card to come back to life before my new motherboard comes in.
