Hello,

Yesterday I received this beautifull card from Italy. Owner contacted me via ebay since he has constants locks in Fast Mode, 2/4/8xFSAA. It is a V5-6000 3700 A with PCI Hank's Reworks.

29/08/2014

V5-6000 3700 A with Original E-Tag plus Hank's notes.


I did some fast test:
- Tested it and not locks up in single mode. Interesting but I had prefered that it had locked even in single mode since I would know where to start to looks.
- VSA100 registers are ok.
- Internal Power Circuit voltage is ok.
- Bios is ok.

First I did is removed the DIODE CR4 to avoid any damage in the PCB for any short circuit . Once done it I checked and test smd values in all smd components (PCI Hank's Rework) but sadly all is correct and card continue having lock ups.

It is the first time I found a problem like this. I need to continue looking for isolating parts until find the error. Normally when there are image errors I can isolate much better the problem but this time the card lock with not errors present in the image. TSOPS memory? Yupe, it is an option.

[05/09/2014]

Trying to isolate parts for finding what component is causing lock ups. At the moment not luck.

MORE TEST ARE COMMING.

24/09/2014
Finally card has been fixed and problem was located in tsop memory.

Card runing in 3DMark2001 looping mode 8xFSAA with 0 lock up.



Regards,
Oscar.

Great to see! Glad cards out there are getting fixed with today's knowledge and technology. (not to mention the superior skill!) Very Happy

I still fire mine up every few months for frag fests. Keep it up man.

How did you manage to localize the problem ?
Do you have a diagnostic tool for the tsop memory ?

A diagnostic tool would be amazing but sadly I dont have one. You could use a SOFT ICE but this is not the case. I try to localize the problem isolating memory cluster.
