code 0203 - instant rrod everytime. chip malfunction, not gettin a connection to the board (not an overheating problem but a bad contact problem) mine turned out to be broken prongs in a corner on the gpu, missin 3 of them. didnt see this til i was comparing with another board. i believe these are mini resistors on the bottom side of the chip due to mistreatment

I worked for about a week in trying to get this fixed. I originally was using a
nylon washer underneath and above. I changed this to nylon washer above with a
zinc one, and loosening the screws slightly. I also put a strip of electricians
tape over the area where the screw heads would touch the chassis so it
wouldn't short. This seems to have done the trick.
It's worth persevering with even if you receive this code several times. [please feel free to email me for any advice)

An extended reflow of the southbridge worked for me.

I solved this error by fixing a bad x clamp. coolent fins weren't making
contact with the gpu. cleaned and added artic silver as always.
