Success rate seems to be pretty close to 50%. My personal bake revive rate is 33% successful. Not to bad of a chance on cards that are totally dead/dieing. Why not bake it?

I joined this site just so I could make a reply to this post:

My graphics card (geforce 8600 GT xxx) had died just last week (random red blocks and dying within seconds) and I was stuck running on an old one. I decided this was a last ditch option for me to get mine running again.

I did everything as described, however, decided to do it in a toaster oven, since I'm impatient Halfway through the baking process, I hear and see 2 capacitors and a strange piece fall off of the card. I quickly pulled out the card and let it cool, now with these 3 extra pieces off the card.

Deciding it couldn't get any worse, (and since my cheap soldering gun couldn't heat the solder) I put the graphics card back in the toaster right side up. While in the middle of baking, I then put the pieces back in place, and they went halfway through their solder. At the end of baking, I take out the card and was able to push the pieces all the way in their places.

After cooling and assembly, I put the card in the computer. Hoping that the pieces weren't put in backwards and ruin my computer, I turn on the computer and to my utter surprise the graphics card worked like brand new.

So in all:
1. Don't attempt a toaster over.
2. If things go bad, and you're willing to take a risk, there still hope.
3. I won't have to spend $100 on a new card.

Add me to the success list. I forgot to register my 8800 GTS for the lifetime warranty and EVGA refused to help me since I bought it 3 years ago. I put it in the oven @ 385 for exactly 10 minutes and I'm back in business! I won't be buying evga again but I'm certainly happy with the oven results .

I did another bake this time on an old 8400GS 256mb DDR2 PCI-E card. It was giving me weird artifacts or whatever they are called on screen but a quick 10mins in my oven at the highest temp and 10mins cooling did the job.

Tested the card in my system and worked for a few days. The other card i done was an ASUS 7600GS AGP which is still in my sisters computer months later and it has not caused one problem.

I so far have a 100% success rate having done a x1650, 8400GS and 7600GS with all of them working after being baked due to them having artifiacts...etc

inspired by this post and others, I baked my friends 8800GTS 640MB that had just failed, and was outside warranty...

After ~9 minutes in the oven at ~195C it came out and we stuck it in and lo-and-behold... it WORKED... couldn't believe it... he's still using it now (about 1 month later) and saving for a 5850 (as an upgrade)

To assist others, I also added a guide to ifixit.com: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/B...cs-card/2240/1
