If you're going to bake a lappy, make sure to remove all the plastic parts as possible.
Bobby, this is currently circulating around my office. We are now deciding whether to try this with some dead Nokia Firewalls and a couple of 2960s.
It's like a regular barbeque!

I have my 8800GTX still functioning. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to try this if it fails. The 8800 GTX is an awesome piece of hardware that has yet to fail me after serving for 3 years now. It has kept my urge to upgrade in check so far.
lovingly done bobby. :]
Would heat guns introduce too much static?
I so wish I'd heard of this before I tossed the card. On the other hand, is there a better excuse for buying a new card?
It would be interesting to see some benchmarks from the Baked GPU, I wonder how they stack up vs the previous unbaked state of the GPU? Did it restore function at the same specs, or could baking cause a performance hit even though it restored function?
I would expect it functions normally, but you never know...
