    As the title implies, I put my 8800GTX in the oven, after it suddenly stopped working. Wouldn't boot into windows, and had artifacts over the POST screen.

    For some sources and stuff

    I was skeptical, to say the least. But, as some people within the sites had said, what did I have to lose?

    Long story short, this method worked. I'm posting from it now. :D

    I have a 8800GT which gives me all sort of strange problems, black screen until windows is fully loaded, sometimes no screen output at all out of the sudden. But it is never an error i could replicate.

    I'm really tempted.

    Empty went through a similar phase.

    Now he is a squad member.

    I'm playing borderlands, and its working perfectly.

    its even cooled down by 8 degrees average. (Celsius/Kelvin)

    I'd assume this is like the towel trick for the 360.

    I believe what this does is expand and melt and resolder all the connections or something.

    This.

    It does that, or it completely destroys everything.

    My 8800 GTS died with artifacts on the screen. I'll probably try this, even though I have a new card now.

    You were supposed to broil it, not fry it. Now look what you've done.
