    hi guys (and galls)

    me and my mate were modding his 9800XT , we replaced the less than gr8 stock heatsink and resat a pentium 4 one, lol which took some time but we got there. for the ram we cut up an old heatsink and made ram sinks. all went well untill we turned it on.

    now even in the bois, the screen looks like a wrongly put to gether jigsaw puzzel? any ideas? we tryed puting the old heat sink on but to no avail.

    Help?! :D lol

    D'oh! Treat a £100 card like an airfix kit and reap the consequences! Think you might have cut across a printed cicuit. Reckon you should try and clean it up and RMA it! If not, now might be the time to go PCI-E ;)

    if your sure it made good contact, you probably cracked the core or cut a few traces.

    You may have gotten some substance on the contacts, the CPU paste or the like... or even some of the metalworking dust. Try cleaning up the contacts on the tab and the slot on the motherboard. You can use alcohol on the tab but best you can do for the slot is to blow it out with canned air.
