help me fix video card - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
wow my computer is revived thank you all who recommended i bake my graphic card. honestly it was a weird suggestion and i had doubts but I had nothing to loose anyways lol.

My graphic card smells like cheetos tho lol. And my temperature its around 35-40 degree from 55-60 after changing the thermal paste and cooking.


now the real question is should I bother testing out with games? I am terrified id get another blue screen and artifact crash lol. As long as i can at least read some stuff online and surf net id be satisfied till i can afford another card lol. How can i tell if its fixed or not?

This fix can be temporary, so if hte card is working don't stress it too much and it should last until you can afford a new card. Although if it does end up taking a dump again, bake it once more and since it worked once before, it should work again.
