Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven Fix " IT WORKED" - Page 15

post #141 of 748
Im defo going to give this a bash, I have a 8800gtx that says no power is getting to the card, so no dice on any frame rates, it works in all but the power.

Who wants 9-4 odds on this working!

+ Rep Jago.

You did a great job of finding the info, testing the theory/method and documenting the whole process from start to finish. Mad prop's man...

Sorry for this next paragraph but I feel obligated to help out a fellow OCN'r if you were not aware. I could not help but notice what appeared to be an led on in your case on or near your mobo while you put the card in the system for the first time to test it out. I thought to my self Hmm I hope he's going to turn the power off to his power supply before he puts the card in the mobo. Yikes he just crambede that thing in there w/out turning off the power. I then though it could of just been an led to something else not even in the computer case. Maybe it was not on the mobo.

Why do I point this out you may ask. I have always been under the impression that it is best for your PC to turn off the power supply before installing or removing any hardware in your system. Additional steps can be taken like unplugging the power supply and holding down the power button on the power supply to dischage any caps that may still be energized. In any case I'm happy for you nothing was ruined if the power was left on & Please do me a favor and start turning of you power supply in the future if this is the case.

I wish I had a couple of GTX280's

Well I purchased a EVGA 8800GTS 640MB on EBAY for $11.00 For parts but Hueristic told me about this trick and I decided to try it.

I just finished baking the card. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Edit: First try failed. I'll try again tomorrow. When I got the card is was already dead so it's no loss really. I got it for the HSF but If I can get it to work that would just be a bonus.

Edit #2: well I baked the card a second time at 400F for 10 min and still a no go. No biggy tho I got the parts I needed any ways and it was worth a shot...

Man that is crazy but it makes sense. Properly it was not soldered properly and the heat softens the solder and make a better connection. Cool still.
post #147 of 748

Hello, I followed your guide on my 8800GTX that was showing horizontal red lines and it worked!! Thank you so much!

Is it just me or is the oven a wonderful invention?

I tried this on two different artifacting EVGA 8800GTS 320MB's I got off of ebay. It didnt work on either of them. One of them wasn't registered so I registered it and I'm going to send it off for RMA really soon.

MY Attempts at the ol Graphics Card in the Oven method thats been all over the internet. I was building a Core i7 build with 2 gtx 280's in it & one of those gtx 280 just so happened to be defective showing Major horizontal lines on the screen. Long story short i had no Warranty nor a receipt so i had nothing to lose> " LETS DO THIS :twisted:


=Introduction Video of what i will be doing=
YouTube - Graphics card in oven Fix: Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven { video 1 }



................................ 1 week pasts



............................................... 2 weeks past



Finally i've earned my self sometime in my busy schedule to continue the Project: Am sli less in my current rig project bio shock here
:arrow:


June 21th & HAPPY FATHERS DAY

The Full Video of what took place :

YouTube - Graphics card in oven fix: Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven {Video 2}



SUCCESS ! ! !



Me & my son both was happy. I made a bet with him that the card would still work after being in the oven. Let me tell you, When he saw me placing Foil on that cookie sheet & learned that i wasnt baking cookies & was baking my graphics cards he followed me threw out this hole process & sat to see the hole thing. Even reminded me when the 20 mins was up after baking it so i could install it.. Its like he doubted me or something..LOL Hes seen me do some crazy stuff even a oil cooled mods but this Graphics card in the oven business alone with good end result he said was just not happening. I said you'll clean the bathroom on Saturday if it worked. altho he lost Were both happy when the system boots A" OK! I was smiling so much my cheeks was hurting.. My Son Nickolas just has a look of SHOCK on his face.. lol "watch the video"

After shots



EXTRA'S
While i was at it, i went ahead & add'ed some new improved lights since i had already busted the system back wide open: :roll: Something i dreaded doing but i guess it paid off 8) I can now change the water color up to 6 different ways I like the multi colors my self. He is one of my new Fav's here






:? TROUBLE SHOOTING & PROBLEMS :x

Only issues i ran into was, The baked gpu displays no green led light as the other Gpu does that originally worked out of box. BEFORE YOU ASK no i didnt bake any of the plastic or sensors that was on the card. The light didnt come on before the bake & it still dosent come on after the fix. So whats this mean? umm nothing.. The card works fine, I've been running in sli now for bout a week with no issues. The green light not coming on dosent bother me one bit. Because i went from thinking i had a dead $400 dollor dead gpu on my hands with no warranty nor receipt to flash forwarding a week later to it being a working card in my system like i had originally planned when i freshly cracked it out the box. Far as am concerned i cheated death with this gtx 280.

All end Well. ITS A SUCCESS BABY & i told my son since he lost the beat i wouldnt make him clean the bathroom & thanked him for his support : )


Thanx for the vids and guides to bake a card. Very informative. Rep+ Your system looks really cool as well!!!
