    Another, Adam why is your video card in the oven?

    Ok this one is wild, i can't believe i even found this... But here it goes

    THE- OVEN TRICK - WORKED
    Ok, i got an 8800gtx of ebay, and it had artifacts all over the screen, like a chessboard
    i reflashd the bios --- still nothing
    then rememberd some cases of heat fixing xbox 360's and thourght of oven trick

    i put it in the oven for around 5 mins AND NOW IT WORKS
    i seriously thourght he was joking, but i got so angry because i couldnt fix the card, i just bunged it in the oven and it workeddd WOO IME SOO HAPPY AND FEEL LIKE I SHOULD TELL EVERYONE!!!
    THANKS FOR ALL YOU HELP!!

    ( by the way if anyone is going to try it make sure u take all the heatsinks off first and make sure u use PREHEATED oven set to 385F ( gass mark 6) (solder melts around 364F) )
    different people left it in there for different times, most people said 6-8 mins 14 is too much

    wow ime so happy
    ****EDIT1****
    GUIDE
    1: remove heatsink and thermal paste
    2: preheat oven to 385F to 400F( NO HIGHER!) ( gas mark 6)
    3: lay foil over the oven rack
    4: make 4 balls of foil, about 4cm high,
    5L when the oven is heated to its corrent temperature, put the graphics card on the 4 balls, one on each corner )
    6: leave for around 6-10 mins, NO MORE THAN 12 OR IT WILL MELT
    7: ENOJOY!!!

    ****EDIT 2****
    THIS FIX MAY NOT LAST FOREVER, SO PLEASE DO NOT PUT CARDS IN THE OVEN AND THEN SELL THEM its not nice!!
