Could baking fix this issue? GTX295

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a BFG GTX295. Single pcb model. It installs fine. But it will randomly lock up my computer. Screen goes black and I have to hold power button until it turns off and then restart. Of course BFG is no more so rma isnt possible. Does this sound like something baking could fix?

I would first try monitoring the temperatures to make sure they are not getting too hot. Baking is usually a last resort option and may or may not work, depending on the actual issue. I would suggest getting afterburner or some similar program to monitor the temperatures for a while and see if you notice a trend.

The temps were fine last time it did it. Like 59c each core. I tried downclocking the card and that didn't help.
