    Card 1 should be a pretty easy fix. I have spare parts from dead cards.

    For card 2, blown 19V caps sometimes cause internal pcb layers to weld together. This can be sanded or drilled out to make the card work, but it won't look like new.

    Thanks for the replies , card two is only one month old and the seller is willing to work with me.
    I am going to send him both cards to fix.

    Exact same problem with my alienware AW 17 R1 with a 880m GTX, worked fine but when it died was puzzled for a month trying to fix it took it apart and pulled the GPU out and it booted fine (2016) , was having problems with 8 beep code recently but somehow the unit is operational ???. I cant figure out if the card is shorting the board or the actual slot has some issue. Checked with a multi meter and its 0.3 Ohms.
