Baked my Nvidia 7600 mobile card!!!!!
Thanks ghn for the input!
I found a vid on youtube that did a before and after of the video card. His card was doing exactly what the new card was doing. Repeated Artifacts and crashing once windows tired to load...
So I figured I'd bake the new one since my old one still worked other than the vid out...
Just like everyone said here. Preheated the oven to 370, Put a sheet of Aluminium Foil down on the baking pan. Rolled up four balls of foil to lift/support the card off of the pan. Baked for 10 mins. Allow it to cool over night.
Brought it to work with me this morning and working like a champ. No artifacts, no crash, and DVI out works.
Thanks again for all the help.
Might want to update the title of the thread to say GPU bake or something. FWIW
Now I can say YIPEEEE for a good reason.
