    My Palit 9600GT stopped working, I took off the heatsink and found a resistor around the GPU that looks burnt.

    Is this why the card will no longer work? Thanks for your help.

    No, I tried, this is the best one I got. After I took the picture I cleaned the burnt spot.

    Yes, it looks different from the other resistors though.

    Well if it's absolutely not working, you could try Baking it. That would be a last resort and you'll have to do the research on your own.

    By the way it's 2012, 9600GT's are sooooo 2008.
