How to repair a graphics card with the oven trick

Posted on Monday, May 02 2011 @ 12:05:54 CEST by

eTeknix shows how you may be able to fix a broken graphics card with the oven trick, you can read it over here.
Don't tell me none of you have never experienced a dead, artifacting card? I know I have, and have been stuck without a solution with a £300 paper weight. Many consumer electricals experience the same problem, be it the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony TV. They all suffer from a problem commonly known as 'board warp'. Due to the temperature build up inside the chassis, the board begins to bend under the weight of any Heat-sinks on top. This results in the tiny solder joints cracking, preventing the flow of electricity originally implemented.

By placing your card into a professional re-bake oven, one can re-melt these tiny joints, restoring the card to its original functionality! This process is commonly used by Board Refurbishers the world over! But, how many of us have a pro re-bake oven? Very few. And the easiest replacement? THE COMMON HOUSEHOLD OVEN!
