Fix your broken Geforce 8800 GTX card with red vertical lines problem

A funny cool trick from hardforum to fix your Geforce 8800GTX GPU with red vertical lines and it WORK !! take a look:
 
"I got the idea from another forum, because some guy in the UK bought a dead 8800gtx off of ebay that had red vertical lines through the screen...my card had the same symptoms...one day it locked up on me, rebooted, then locked up on me even quicker...rebooted, red lines all over the screen and windows wouldn't even boot. i tried the card in a friends computer with the same result...


sooooooo, i removed all bits from the card including the i/o shield and placed it gpu side down with the card raised up on 3 sides by tiny balls of aluminum foil and placed it on a very thin cookie sheet. i preheated the oven to 385f, put the card in and waited around 8-10 minutes. i carefully removed the cookie sheet and placed it on top of the oven to cool down naturally. waited about an hour and voila!
