Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven Fix " IT WORKED" - Page 34

post #331 of 748
I can also confirm that this works!

I have a Dell m1710 7900 GTX card. On the boot screen it had these weird dotted blue lines. I baked it at 220c for 12 mins. It was a little long and I should have removed the thermal copper pipe - the solder attachment melted and the pipe fell off. I soldered it back on though.

The oven smelled for a few hours afterwards but I saved $300 and my video card works like new!

Just remember you need to remove the thermal unit even though the manual says never do so!

You're dumb... or ignorant.

Artifacts in graphics cards are caused by hardware faults, such as a bad solder connection. reheating the stripped card at a certain temperature will melt the solder and rejoin it. once cooled the card will work as normal.

why do u say that nemesis. i've read that baking works because it reconnects breaks in the circuitry or something. no clue if its true. but its worked for multiple ppl not just on this forum.

also to the OP. u got superhero muscles. no homo.

1. Have you tried it?
No, probably not.
2. This card is unusable now, I don't have anything to lose.
Who would do this to a working, full functional card?
3. The heat gun method works wonders (from what I've seen) on busted Xbox 360 boards, the faultiness stems from the same problem.



Back on topic --

Has everyone used the settings the OP tried? (385 degrees @ 10 minutes) ?
Also, has anyone tried this with a broken 360 board ?

Its not fake, just try it when you get an artifacting card and see.

I noticed this baking thing which i was skeptical of at first but since i had a few spare pci-e/agp cards which were of no use to me and where giving artifacts i thought that i would try it because the cards would otherwise be laying about doing nothing anyway and it worked very well. I used an AGP card in my sisters computer and more than 6 months later and i've had no complaints about the computer so i can safely say it does work.

my only question is if this has any negative effects for our health? i don't want to kill myself the next time i use my oven.
