Hi I was hoping someone could help me. I have a Sapphire Radeon HD6950 and It was working fine untill i took it out of my motherboard and placed it onto my wooden desk to replace my watercooler. When I had replaced my watercooler i placed it back in the motherboard and suddenly it had magically died and i had no display and it wasnt showing in Device Manager. I tried putting it in my friends pc and it still didnt work and its not my PCI-E slot because my friend put his gpu in my computer and it worked fine.


Could someone please help me understand how it could have dies if it is even truley dead?


Thanks in advance.

My guess would be that years of heating and cooling worked a component loose, and the act of moving it jarred it loose.
