    Good day everyone, I'll get straight to the point, do you think I would be able to sell a not working gtx 1070, and if so at what price?

    Additional Info: I've bought this GPU in April 2019 from Taobao and I've used it in my laptop (Alienware 17 R1) since May 2019 up until February 6th 2020 when it suddenly stopped working.
    Windows correctly detects the card, and you can install drivers with a modded .inf file, but the it will not work and device manager gives error 43, this also generates some display glitches.
    The card was not running any graphics intensive tasks when it stopped working, I had left my laptop unattended (with a PDF opened) and came back to the GPU not working.
    The GPU was never overclocked, temperatures were always good and so was the performance of the card.

    Photos Description: the photo that pictures the GPU installed inside the laptop was taken the day I installed it last year, the photo with the two GPUs was taken the day I removed it to reinstall my old 770M (on the right), the photo of the device manager page shows the error and the display glitches caused by the GTX 1070, the remaining two photos were just taken

    Let me know if you need more info.
    Maybe someone with the right tools, knowledge and time can bring this GPU back to life.

    Thanks in advance.

    looks like it is still under warranty ( 19-04-20) according to the sticker on its back. You can ask for replacement from the seller

    damn, I assumed that was the day of the order (20th of April 2019) never thought there could be a warranty, I'll check with the seller.

    EDIT: it was indeed 20th of April 2019 (Chinese system is YY/MM/DD apparently) and so there’s no warranty

    I'd still ask the question though. See how friendly they are.
