I registered to this site just so I can post my results in baking my defective 8800GT. Little over half a year ago my card went toast (lines, artifacts, bsod, bad quality picture, overheating, could not run games etc.). It went on for a while and suddenly one time got so bad I couldn't even start the computer anymore. After checking the warranty (that went VOID just 2 weeks before incident) I was so pissed that just biked to the nearest electronics store and bought a 9800 card (I didn't have too much extra cash).

But yesterday I had a conversation with my friend and we talked about this baking method and I thought I'd give it a try (I had nothing to lose anyway) but decided to document it well so I could be helpful/provide good overview over the method.

And quess what, it actually worked! I'm using the one time defective card right now! I shall post some pictures and two videos of what I did. (Basically it's the same thing the OP did except that I filmed a boot before putting the card in the oven so EVERY sceptic person can get it in their face)

I can confirm this really does work. I spent the 10 minutes muttering to my self "what the hell am I doing", but couldnt believe that my borked 8800gtx is now working again.

Gone are the yellow lines and artifacts. I was pissing myself last night as I was experiencing 100fps at one point last night playing arma2.

how long it lasts for is anyones guess but its worth a go.

update when you post those pics will be helpful...

Also I'm interested in doing this on a couple of laptop mobos... any pitfalls I should know?? (Dell Inspiron 17 inch w/ 7 series GF and Apple MacBookPro with radeon X1600)

post #349 of 748
Well, I just baked my 8800gts and it was a massive fail! Most of the capacitors dropped of and some other components dropped of as well =( I've tried doing it with GPU up to resolder the thing sin but one of them is refusing to go in!!!
Do you think I should put it in my pc and give it a go or do you think it'll kill my system?
Thanks

The OP is massive, weightlifters mess around with PCs too I C. I will have to try this if any of my GPUs ever fail completely. You have nothing to lose if no warranty.
