    Okay so I'm going to follow @Mr.Fox guide. Is there any other changes I need to make or settings I need to tweak outside of the PDF? I'm using ThrottleStop and it's a delidded 7700k I had SiliconLottery do. Right now with no OC it's getting about 98 degrees max on the 256MB TS bench,

    hey guys, so last night i was cleaning my laptop and accidentally the heatsink touched a small surface of the GPU and there was a spark. after that the laptop wont post anything.
    i took the picture of the card and it seems the component is fried i think. Can someone look at the picture and tell me if its dead or there is some hope? thanks.
    i'll be taking it to repair center after the weekend. but i heard GPUs can not be reliably repaired.
    This is the image. https://imgur.com/8PAPRUu

    If it was just on that SMD, then it's the current measurement on the 19.5V, replace it and check voltage presence.
    No POST means no image or no reaction at all?
    Could he that it took some input MOSFETS.

    I send my laptop to MSI service so they can change rumbling fans for silent one. They send me laptop with these fans, but numbers on em doesnt sounds familiar. Any chance that they're these new better version?

    Are you able to unmount those fans and provide a photo of the sticker on the bottom?
    There should be a type label on there that gives a manufacturer as well as the type description.

    yes the spark/contact was only on the graphics card, i have sent it to a repairing center for now.
    It did turn on and everything seemed normal, fans turned on aswell , but there was no image just black screen when last i checked.

    did unplug the power but not battery, i wasn't really removing much, it seems the padding near the gpu on heatsink has worn out and it touch it once it. tho the laptop has serve its purpose for me so not too worried about it. its almost 3.5years now.

    HI.

    Long time no chat!

    So, I'm really in need to move out of my GTX 1080, it hits limits easily with resident evil 3 remake... lol

    Any recommendations for a 2020 eGPU box to go with a 2080Ti?

    My laptop got the 8700K CPU over a year now without issues running 4.4Ghz daily. 64GB Ram and 3TB SSD (1 NVMe, 1 M.2 and 1 Sata 3).

    Sad to see @Talon laptop dead.
