I have a Toshiba X305 laptop and had unfortunately overheated the laptop which caused lines to appear on the screen due to failed solder points on the GPU.
After searching around on the web for a while, I saw several references to baking the cards to return them to life.

Sooooo, I took the card out of the laptop and stuck it into the toaster oven and then set the oven to 250 degrees. (I did not leave it in long enough to reach that temperature.)
I turned on the toaster oven for approximately 2 minutes and then shut off the oven and opened the door to allow it to cool.
No preheating was done....

When the card was cool enough, I reinserted it into the laptop, and it is now working perfectly.

Doing this caused the solder for the GPU to re flow and correct the problem that was caused by the initial overheating.

Anyone for baked Nvidia 9800M GTX's?

That's an interesting method! I'm kinda tempted to try that on a circuit board that I can't figure out what's wrong with it.
