Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven Fix " IT WORKED" - Page 22

post #211 of 746
"Innocent until proven Guilty" ...so it is said..so it shall be


*IMO- 'baking' has brought back tons of so called broken hardware...mainly to blame is bad solder connections from the chip to the PCB..baking can loosen them and 're-seat' the solder again....has worked for me personally on several sticks of Micron RAM, a friends Xbox360...and tons of others as well as GPU's.

Out of all the things you have heard today....this..is what you choose to be skeptical of.. I hear more fishy stuff listening to the news @ 6pm.

@ OP: You didn't show us these horizontal lines so how do we know you have a defective card in the first place? There's also no evidence that card waited for 10 minutes in that oven. There isn't any stopwatch showing for how long the card has been in there. Even if you put a stopwatch how can you assure us that you did not take the card out of oven the time you stopped video and put it back in there before you started recording again? Sorry but I don't believe this.
Ugh, he showed the pics of the artifacts, in teh attachments, and i believe this works, worked on cards here, so if you got nothing to lose, why not?

Dude I owe you a big thanks I would have never thought that would work.

Story:

I own a Alienware m5500i-R3 in which will never buy an alienware product again. I had many issues right out the gate with it such as overheating, memory issues ect... After many fights with Alienware I finally got it working fine. Two months after the Warranty was up the graphics card started artifacting. Called Alienware and they gave me the finger. I have been wanting to get the card swapped but most of the people that sold a replacement were out of stock or were shaddy. So 1 year after my card died I found your post took the bad boy out took off all the heat shielding and threw it into the oven at 375 for 10 minutes. Took it out let it cool and put it back in, when I booted up the laptop I was like "Holy $%## it actually works".

So anyone that has a screwed up graphics card desktop or laptop I strongly recommend this method. Either way what have you got to loose.

Thanks again man major plus karma to you.

Edit:

Since seeing is believing...

Broken


Fixed

^^ You did it with a laptop?!?!?! I would never do that, EVER, does your laptop have a removable GPU or did you just throw the whole thing in?

My brother's laptop's RAM died a while back I'll try freezing and then baking if that doesn't work. I'll keep you guys posted.

My friend had an old ThinkPad T42 that he baked in the oven. Of course he only put the motherboard in. That board had a problem of bad solder near the GPU. He brought his laptop back to life!

Damn man. If you want to bake a graphics card more power to you.

Don't let me stand in your way, jesus.
