If your card has gone bad through a slightly dodgy solder joint, then baking it like that might just reflow the solder enough to fix the join. But it's a long way from being a sure thing.

I worked at a computer repair shop called A Good Tech LLC. and this is a confirmed working trick. Same with putting dead HDD's in the fridge overnight.

Yes it works (well most of the time at least), but you must cover each capacitor (solid or not) with aluminum foil or they will explode.

200 C preheated, only 10 minutes. The downside is that it rarely lasts. It will usually die again in a month or two.

The catch is that you are actually melting all the solder on the PCB thus allowing it to reflow and fill hair line cracks where it loses contact, but if the problem is in the solder balls under the GPU it won't last. The only way to truly fix it will be by using professional reballing machine in some specialized service, but that usually costs more then the card itself.

I have baked 2 video cards and a laptop motherboard, and can say that yes, it does work.

The only sod is the time to prepare properly, but check online for instructions and follow them really closely and you'll save yourself a pile of cash.

All you are doing is reflowing the solder as most solder melts at slightly below 200 degrees. I understand ARMac's point and some items have inherent faults, but for a lot of general boards, give it a go.
