Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven Fix " IT WORKED" - Page 39

post #381 of 746
You know I have fixed many Xbox 360s....I think using a heatgun is much less harsh, and works better than the oven.

So, after about a month of usage, the card started artifacting again during the boot and didn't post signal after that. I thought that the card is dead for good this time.. but all I can say is.. I've now baked the card TWICE and it WORKS again!

Yeah the thing is, usually baking only has a temporary effect.

I could explain what's the problem for you quite simply. Others can correct me if i'm wrong, but I'm probably right.

The most common hardware problem with a dead GPU is that the solderings are cracked. They crack because of the switching between hot and cold (even more so in laptops or poorly cooled cases)

To solve this you simply heat them up, so they merge again. This is also what real workshops do to repair them.

The problem with this solution is that once the soldering is broken and air can get in between which causes the metal to get polluted and this decreases the "stability" of the metal causing it to crack more easily the next time.

If you are lucky it will break in anywhere from 6 to 24 months or never, or it might break the very next day. And each and everytime it breaks it gets worse.

English isn't my first language, but I guess it should make people understand why this method works for people.

I've actually thought about opening up my laptop and seeing if I can bake it since it's one of the infamous Nvidia failures without any warranty.

According to that, I'm going to have to hold my breath with the card.
I got another backup card from a friend now so the 7600GT will be sitting and waiting for its turn.

This is a thankyou aimed at Jago-Vs-Fulgore as ive had a similar issue with my GTX 280, my issue was a dry joint issue. When the card was stone cold it would crash on Win7 Aero Desktop, when the card warmed up it would load faultlessly!. I could do anything with it for as long as a wanted with perfect temps. Once it was warmed up. Tryed everything known to man to resolve the issue, even had a one on one talk with the GTX 280 lol. So after reading this forum and watching the video I decided to try it out myself. Stripped card down and cleaned up thermal paste/pad residue. Put pcb card on an upside down baking tray covered with tin foil, but instead of using foil balls to hold up GPU board (as I was a bit concerned to anything sticking to them) I used motherboard mounting screws, which were about 10mm long each, and poked the threaded ends through the holes in the PCB, so that no componants were being blocked, or touching anything. Warmed up my fan assisted oven to 195c or 383f (as my oven only does 5c or 41f increments) and put GPU PCB in there for 10 mins, lower shelf. After 10 mins, I opened up oven door, and gave the card 15 mins cooling time before I even took it out of the oven, then gently removed from oven, allowing a further 15 mins cooling time in ambient temps. By this time the card was stone cold, everything appeared to be fine! You can see the fresh solder flux floating on the top of some of the larger solder joints prooving that they had been heated up sufficiently. After re-assembling I powered up the card, I got POST screen! YAAAY, Green Light! YAAAY and a boot into Win7 PERFECTLY! I immediatley loaded GPU-z logger and kept an eye out on my temps, all good! idle at around 35c-40c and under load peaking at 77c-78c! Perfect. All 3d apps are working ok, no aero desktop crashing anymore, when loading up from stone cold, so far so good, just gonna keep heatcycling it over the next few days, to test reliability.

XFX 750i Motherboard
Corsair TX950W Power Supply
4Gb Corsair XMS2-6400 Dual Channel Memory
XFX GTX 280 602MHz core
Intel E6600 Dual Core Processor
2x Western Digital Raptor's Raid 0 @138Gb 10'000RPM


Hopefully if the card remains stable I wont need to post anymore!

Piece!
