Not sure if this is sarcasm, or not.

But if it is, might be known that baking is a viable option, if it's a solder issue.
Very popular method for 'reflowing' the common DV3/6/9 series of HP GPU chips. (Laptops).

I'll throw in some Chocolate Chip Walnut with the card. For sure.

An no I wasn't being sarcastic at all. Just saying thanks for correcting me as it's always good to learn. I need to get a hold of some thermal pads first to try and see if I can get it fixed also. If that doesn't work I'm going to my last resort of baking it. If THAT doesn't work, I'm guessing I'll try to sell it (not sure what it would even be worth).
