I baked my graphics card in the kitchen oven!
My computer started to freeze regularly, a few weeks ago, while running computer games. Last week it got worse, strange artifacts appeared all over the screen while doing normal work in both Linux and Windows.
Finally it came to a dead stop, I could only see random letters on the screen after rebooting and the operating system refused to boot.
Confused, angry and disappointed I ordered a new computer.
It takes 5 days for UPS to deliver my new machine, sitting here idle in my summer vacation was making me mad!
I started digging into the internetz till I found someone who claimed that it was possible to fix broken display adpaters by baking them in the oven!
After lots of WTF thinking I decided to give it a try.
