Hey good lookin,

Recommended Posts

For someone who has never done this, can you explain a few things?

 

Why do you do this?

What specific problems does it fix?

How does it fix them?

What cards does this work for?

Is the procedure different for different cards?

 

Thank you everybody :P

it basically just re-flows the solder... not hot itenough to get it full liquid but enugh to fix cracks in it....

 

heat kills these things and after a while the solder flaws show up and the baking trick fixes it....

 

it works on every card that exhibits the same issues

i've seen lots of it at youtube way back and got awed :whoa:

and i have my dead 9800GT still lying somewhere. the oven thing looks easy :dunno: but it seems i'm lacking the guts to try it with my PC then.

for physx card perhaps :evilgrin:

Do it, we'll have a baked G92 party when all is said and done!!

 

Make a thread and post pics to spread the word. G92's are back from the flames of hell!!

I had great success reviving a broken 4870X2 from Ebay doing the baking trick...just don't do it for too long. Prepping properly is key as is the cooling of the card (too fast will damage it).

 

 

hi guys.. what are you talking about if i may ask?

Basically reflowing the solder joints to allow the card to function again.

 

 

Have used that trick on my gateway 30 inch monitors a couple times

i was wondering if any of you card chefs have had any issues with the plastic components melting or deforming , like on a motherboard cpu socket and if you hold the board away from the tray with balls of foil like i have seen ? the reason i ask is my laptop had the infamous nvidia gpu bad solder bodge job bga issue and i might burn its butt up in the oven at some point :evilgrin:

I thought you could remove the GPU card from the laptop?
