    That is a definite maybe.... it depends on why it died. All that baking fixes is bad solder joints... if a component has failed then you need to identify it an change it.

    Your card will need to have all heatsinks removed and any plastic that can be too.

    It will need to be placed in an oven at 390 F (200 C). It will need to be supported above the oven tray and be level. Most people use a combination of cooking foil balls or foil covered angle iron cut into small sections to make everything the same height for support with a sheet of foil on the tray too.

    cooking time of 8-12 minutes The card needs to be gpu side up

    Open the oven door and leave to cool. During the whole process it may be a good idea to ventilate the area of the oven and bear in mind that solder can contain lead etc which can be detrimental to health. Maybe use an old oven rather than your shiny new one that you want to cook food in afterwards to be absolutely sure.

    Keeping to this cooking time should mean that any plastics still attached to the board and the pcb itself all survive. You should smell solder not melting plastic.

    When it is cool replace the heatsinks and, if it is still good, the fan and cowl assembly. You can always strap a Delta or two to the heatsink if the fan is toast.

    Just now you have nothing to loose so.......Have fun

    EDIT: Just a thought.... before you start check the reverse side of the board (which will be on the bottom during this process). If there are any surface mounted components these will need to be supported in place otherwise they will likely fall off during the oven phase.
