Introduction

Parfois, vous aurez une carte vidéo hors garantie qui n'est plus qu'un presse-papier.

Si vous alliez la jeter de toute façon, vous pouvez tenter votre chance et réparez temporairement la carte en refoulant la soudure et en repositionnant les billes de métal sous le dé. Tout ce qu'il vous faut, c'est un four et un peu de chance.

Évidemment, comme avec tout tutoriel qui implique un four, vous vous pourriez brûler les mains, mettre le feu à votre maison, inhaler des fumées toxiques et vous livrer à d'autres dangers, alors ne faites rien si vous n'êtes pas à l'aise en le faisant.

Cependant, si vous êtes confiant et que le potentiel d'une carte réparée en vaut la peine pour vous, continuez à consulter le tutoriel.

(Veuillez noter que le tutoriel a été modifié par quelques personnes au fil des ans - certaines parties ne sont pas de ma plume !)

Bonne chance !

My GTX 570 failed dramatically yesterday not even allowing booting into the Windows environment. After 10 minutes on gas mark 5 (and a half) all is well this morning. I had seen this technique used on games consoles, but never considered it for PC cards. Thanks VERY MUCH for this guide.

Christopher Jones - Réponse

My GTX 460 has been failing for about 2 weeks and until yesterday has been displaying white lines even during the BIOS POST. I wasn't willing to try this on my mother's oven, instead I used a heat gun and a laser thermometer to monitor the temperature. I started at the lowest temperature possible and gradually increasing until ~160°C, applying heat mostly on the memory chips and GPU for about 10 min. The problem has vanished completely :D

Even though I didn't quite follow this guide, it gave me useful directions, thanks!

I fixed my friends dead out-of-warranty Leadtek Geforce 8800 GTS 640MB card using this procedure

That was 3 weeks ago, and he's still using it daily since then

We forgot to plug in the fan connector and his temperatures reached 124C while playing a game

Since then he reconnected his fan and it's working fine

Thanks for reading, hope it helps someone

How long did your reflowed graphics card last? Is it still rocking?

Lim Chi Yuung -

The card did eventually fail, i believe around 4 months later - the guy ended up buying a new card

Gaspard Leon -

Hi everyone,

I also fixed a almost dead NVIDIA 512mb MXM II card, at the first point I put the card 8 min to 190ºC aprox, it improved the performance but not yet to run.

Then i repeated the operation with 205ºC and 10 min and the card ran perfectly, add some thermal paste and it's solved.

Thanks for this manual it's very usefull!!!

I just finished doing this with an evga gtx460 i got from a friend of mine. It was throwing up artifacts and crashing constantly before. Now it's stable for over 10 minutes. It looks like it's fixed but only time will tell. Wish me luck and thanks for the guide!

Chris S - Réponse

It is such a nice way you have done it but the process need too much care and there is a big threat of PCB damage due to manual working so you need to be more careful and if someone is worried about the PCB he need to get a better auto pick and place BGA rework station this is specially made for these types of reworking. Here I have seen some blogs that have so many machines and process you can choose according to the type of reworking you want. I am sure you will like it.

My brother's GTX 560 started acting up after 3.5 years, showing stutter in Windows boot-up, games and any other graphics-intensive task and inability to run 1080p. He was ready to dump €150-€200 on a new one but I talked him into trying to reflow it despite his safety conserns. Having never tried to reflow any electronic component, let alone in a home oven, I was a bit precarious and only "baked" it for 10 minutes at 190oC. Then I let it cool for 15 minutes with the oven door closed, followed by another 15 minutes with the door open.

IT WORKED! The look on his face was priceless. Problem is, he was kind of wishing to have to get a new one. :)

This works for me. Thanks so much. I have ATI R9 270x 4GB Sapphire that displays red pixelated lines on bios and it does not display after loading the OS. I just remove the fan and heatsink, clean up left over thermal paste, put it in the oven(used aluminum foil to avoid touching the tray). put the oven on 200C and set it for 5 minutes. after that i test it and it worked.

Gts 450 was fixed. I was anxious and scared to try this but im glad i did. I wrapped the card in foil only leaving the graphics chip exposed. I put it on the oven toaster for about 7-8 minuted and now the lines were gone. Im on a desktop by the way. Thanks!1

Arkaem - Réponse

It works better with a heat gun and then you can focus the heat on the gpu instead of the other components. I've done it on quite a few graphics cards, mac mini gpu's and some laptop motherboards. I run the heat gun on high for 4 minutes and heat the surrounding area so it doesn't bend or warp and focus most of the heat on the GPU.

Tim Porter - Réponse

Is that gpu fixed boards still working.?? I tried this by heat gun and oven on different Mac boards so just curious to know how long it will last. Any feedback much appreciate. Cheers

Karl Kangleon - Réponse

Anyone reading this guide in 2016 - please note that the premise is a bit flawed, you're not really "re-flowing" the solder on the circuit-board, at least that's not the part that fixes the card usually, it's a temporary expansion or contraction of the "bumps" underneath the surface-mount chips the GPU or memory modules that causes the card to work again (at least for a while) the upshot of this is that even a temperature that doesn't melt the solder can actually work for a while as well.

Gaspard Leon - Réponse

I had a GTX560 Ti from Asus,green artefacts,crashes,only worked on 1024x768 with no acceleration,tried this tehnique around 11 minutes at aprox.200°C and it worked flawlessly,now let's see for how long.i also installed MSI Afterburner and pumped up the idle fan load to 40% just to be sure it stays cool,hope this helped someone.

PS:plastic objects on the board will melt,so you better remove them

I just fixed a GTX460 by putting it in the oven at 190 degrees Celsius for 8 minutes. Used the trick with the scrunched up balls of aluminium-foil and it worked! Amazing. Before, I had these horizontal white lines all over the screen. Removed the plastic with the fan and covered up the plastic connections with aluminium-foil.

Sam Decrock - Réponse

Yes! Buggy, half dead Radeon 7970 salvaged from the trash. Baked at 195-ish degrees C for about 8 min.

But come on, why is everyone making aluminum foil balls? Make little cones, much more stable. :)

hansson1984 - Réponse

This fix is still going strong!

Second time repair now for my aging 8800 GTS....(having also previously resurrected an old RROD X360 board with the same method). It was displaying classic artifacts..Blue vertical lines across the screen and disrupted graphics.

Preheat oven to 220C (200C with Fan assist)

Remove everything...connectors, heatsink, fan, thermal pads and paste.

Clean gently but thoroughly - if using tissue; blow to ensure no fibres remain.

Protect all but GPU by wrapping in Aluminium foil.

Rest the board on four little scrunch balls of foil on a baking tray (normal side up).

Cook for exactly 10 minutes.

Remove immediately and allow to cool for at least 30 mins.

Check the board is OK by starting up PC with naked board...Do not run for more than 1-2 minutes without heatsink!!!

Reapply thermal pads and paste, heastsink, fan and power connector for the fan (if needed).

Reinstall and you are good to go...

Last fix worked for about 10 weeks...I'll let you know how long this one goes for.

Trying to fix a gtx 980 Ti the oven fix made it work for like a few minutes then it died, I retried the procedure and it died in a few seconds.. Any advise?

cryptonite26 - Réponse

This is just a temporary fix, and shouldn't be treated as permanent. The next step up would be to have the chip removed, use a stencil to reapply solder on all the contacts, and then when the chip is perfectly in place it gets melted from the other side (through the chip) to melt it down before letting it cool.

Due to the difficultly involved in doing all this, I wouldn't take doing this lightly.

Nedko Kostadinov - Réponse

can someone tell me what setting to use on the oven, up and bot heating or air circulation?

Anukun Thurner - Réponse

A complete alternative to this guide is to just identify the chip that needs reflowing, and using a heat gun to heat it up. If you have or can get something like kapton tape, do so. It can be used to shield everything around the chip you are heating up from being exposed to the same amount of heat and causing their own problem. Otherwise, use aluminium foil, along with some clips (I find the tiny ones you use for crafting work best, but be creative). Then finally heat away, making sure you have some understanding of what is too hot or not hot enough.

Jason - Réponse

My GTX 670 showed sometimes some symptoms of corrupt VRAM in 2D mode evident as 2D artifacts but never in 3D games. After the symptoms also occured as 2D artifacts in 3D games the card crashed and wouldn't allow booting.

So I baked it. Now the GTX 670 works again, or at least I didn't damage it. I put the card on baking paper and on a rost. Nevertheless, I did three mistakes. 1) Preheated to 210°C and THEN put the card in. Bad. 2) after 5min increased to quite high 220°C. Bad. After 10min I saw that one display port jumped off and all the capacitors were tilted sideways. 3) I quickly pulled the card out to ambient temperature. Bad.

Luckily I put the card with the GPU, the capacitors and all the other heavy parts upwards, otherwise they would have fallen off ("pro tip" :D). Now the card works again and I lost a DP port. :D Although it works now, I'll probably get a new card.

lukie80 - Réponse

Thanks! I'm so happy that you at least proved that even with some mistakes, this method may still be working though! No worries about trying to be so careful (if you're ok with losing a DP port LOL). Thanks for the comment bro!

Is it safe to use the oven afterwards to cook food, etc.

Does baking your gpu in your oven make your oven toxic and unusable to cook food in?

Tanner McKay - Réponse

I don't think so. Most components in there (included plastic) can support more than 250°C so you're not incinerating anything that creates any fumes. I suppose a burnt pizza leaves more toxic fumes than baking a GPU, IMHO.

Gom zalito -

Of course is toxix, many acids used in the industrial process will evaporate in your Oven and in your Lungs

Peppigners 1980 -

This Method is very stupid and dangerous because you give an amount of heat on all the card and not all the components are thermo resistant till 200-220 Celsius , is so hard to buy a cheap heating gun and giving heat only on the GPU instead of all the card???? This method is dangerous also for your health bevause all the chemical substances used in the industrial process for the production od the card will evaporate in your oven and in your lungs…….if you are happy do it but if you are a bit intelligent take a heat gun or a rework station to do the reflow procedure……..bye

Peppigners 1980 -

Done it with my R9 270X from Club3D. Someone there decided that 1 fan was enough. Baked it for 9 minutes @200 degrees celcius. It kind of revived it! Thanks to all the commenters, if you weren't here I would NOT have tried this!

tristan-floyd - Réponse

Oh boy, so satisfactory! Im here to post that I've done it with my 4yrs old EVGA 560Ti. 4 days ago, it crashed while I was gaming and after that it started to show artifacts on BIOS, on setup, on POST, and even on windows load, it wouldn't boot either (crashing with BSOD driver reset error), although I could boot on Safe Mode (with millions of artifacts) and saw this guide, and all these comments that made me try it at last.

So, I've cooked it for 12 mins at low temp in my gas oven (don't have thermometer so I decided to put it in medium).

After slowly cooling it first near the oven and then blowing with a fan some cool air from outside, I tested it with no luck (I forgot to connect the power cable, but didn't realize LOL) and decided to put it for another 8 minutes in the oven at maximum.

I instantly tried again, and after it doesn't boot I finally realize I wasn't connecting the power (so dumb of me lol). After that it booted up again normally! So far it's working now, I'll post whenever it dies again!

Gom zalito - Réponse

is it still alive?

Shibō san -

Due to hard times, losing a job and all...I tried this. I Have a Evga 560ti. Its over 6 years old. The first time it artifacted was in may 2016. I baked it in my microwave Oven for 8 mins at 190C. Card started working great. It worked well for a year. Then it started artifacting again in July 2017. I baked it again and it started working again. But since July 2017 It seems to start artifacting after 2 weeks. And subsequently I have baked it 3 times already. It works but only for a few weeks at a time.

So the lesson is the first bake and success story lasts the longest. Subsequent bakes don't last long.

I think its time to plunk down for a new card. Whats saddening is that last year summer 2016 there was the gtx 1060... And this year still its the gtx 1060... Nvidia didn't release any new cards!

Did this on my son's hd 7870, it lasted a year.... My son started leaving his PC on all night and it crapped out again. Going to redo it and see if I get lucky again. Lol. But a year fix for such a simple method isn't bad at all.

Indigo Cordova (Indigo79) - Réponse

If I understand correctly, reflowing does not solve the problem in the long run because it actually lies in the solder bump area within the underfill, where the main die makes contact with the substrate.

These are tiny balls, almost impossible to fix but with the application of heat the problem is temporarily rectified so as the underfill is moved around etc and some contact may be re-made temporarily, but is largely design error in the chip production and in the end a full swap out is the only real solution.

The issue is *not* in the larger solder balls found where the substrate makes connection to the board, as most people expect.

But it could be in some cases with a warped or bent board.

I baked my 780Ti and it works. While in baking, DP port, HDMI port, and 6 silver capacitor were peeling off lol. I baked with 200c at 8 minutes.

Hello,

I have a GTX580 (bought 07/2012) which last weekend started showing artifacts on my screen. After doing all the relevant research for software related issues and before going to buy a new (yet expensive) GTX1070ti, I googled “how to fix graphics card”. I ended up here.

After the “baking” process (205oC - 12 minutes) I am really happy to say that the card seems to now work! I hope that it will continue so up until Xmas.

I have tried this on my GTX 970, baked it for 8 minutes in 200 c.

I hooked it up, the display goes on but the resolution is set on 600X800.

Goes into windows, can’t change the resolution, so I tried to reinstall the drivers but it didn’t do anything.

Suddenly the screen goes off, I restart my PC and it works the same way until it gets to the sign in screen, then it turns off.

Any ideas before I give up on it?

Amir - Réponse

You could try a few more minutes, give it around 12 instead of 8. Also make sure the oven is fully preheated first. If that doesn’t do it then I would give up and get a cheap used one from eBay or something.

Just tried this fix on my GTX780 which developed the infamous code 43 error - after following this info I above, I was still a little skeptical, but I am happy say that the video card now works perfectly and even runs a little cooler courtesy of the fresh Arctic Silver under heatsink.

Great stuff - thanks.

Wiped all drivers, baked the card for 9 minutes on 190C/380F, reinstalled, and to my surprise.. This fix, after 8 years, still works! Don’t be afraid to try before spending 500,- on a new card.

I got the display working after doing the oven baking as described here which saves my graphic card of acer 5920g nvidia 9600m gt card. Then I found the dual display is set to” auto” by default and I changed it to “ dual “ mode and now even though sometimes I get the black screen in lcd display my cry monitor works fine. So everybody who has problem with black screen, better to check the bios settings before changing the graphic card. Thanks again everybody in this site given the feedback on oven baking.

Had a Radeon RX 270 that only worked in 2D, where 3D acceleration was completely gone. Up to the point of complete 3D failure, there was now and then graphic artifacts in some games when the card was heating up - like white boxes and texture errors.

Disassembled fans and heatsink. Put 4 spacer screws where the GPU cooler is normally mounted, to lift it above the baking tray.

Baked for 10 mins. @ 200C, turned off the oven and opened the lid to let it cool down slowly. After approx. 10 minutes I took it out and let it cool for another 5 mins. Reassembled heatsink and fans, and put fresh cooling paste on the GPU.

Though I’ve read many of the comments here, I was still a little surprised that it actually worked - so thanks for the tip :-)

I think my gtx 970 broke from putting it inside of my backpack and traveled with me to my friend’s house. It has no physical damage as I have opened it and viewed it, but it is not being detected by BIOS now. The lights and fans are on, and power properly connected, but I can only use my integrated gpu now. So could this method work for me?

before that i need to know something ….actually if i insert the gpu in the pc it could n’t start (fans spins for second and turns off). So should i do the reflow stuff or should check the card’s circuitary using a multimeter for failed stuffs such as vrms, mosfet, etc,. Any ways im planing to use a heatgun instead of oven becoz i dont have a oven :|………

im having a GTX 750Ti 2gb from zotac…………….

Thank you for this tutorial and the updated posts on lower temperature requirements. Wrapped my dead iMac mid-2011 GPU in foil, exposing only the chip. Baked it for 10 minutes at 325 º F and allowed it to cool slowly to room temp. Works perfectly now! This gives me time to locate and buy a backup / refurbished GPU. Has been working for a week so far. Will post back on it’s next bake to see how long it lasts.

Hey, I encountered this problem recently and I thought of solving this problem by myself and here I am.. So I wanna try this method ASAP, what I wanted to know is that whether it is OK to put the card in the oven without the ports covered?

I hope someone will reply soon because I'm very nervous about this method.

How much dangerous it is to use the oven to cook food again .
