For static I don't think baking would help as it only resauters the points.

Baking only helps to reflow solder. Specifically with BGA chips.

Plus there is a bunch of plastic on the board to worry about.

The other posters were most likely correct......baking will do nothing but possibly make it worse. If a lightning strike was the culprit, something is damaged on the board. Can't you RMA it?

well it is in at 370 for 7 min... then i will let it cool and try it.. i have 3 computers. i had to replace a mobo in one, psu in another, and put a NIC in mine. soon i will be upgrading mine to am3 anyways so i dont mind a 9.00 NIC to get some more life out of it till then.
