  1. I am flashing from CyanogenMod to 6.0.0 on my G1 and am having some problems. The phone is obviously unlocked and has root access. Nandroid is installed and I know how to install the required radio update, google add-ons, and the ROM. But I can only find cryptic instructions on how to install Amon_RA's recovery image and I've never done a fastboot. Does anybody know how to install RA-dream's recovery and do a fastboot?
  2. Meh, it looked the same going in as it did coming out. The only difference was the smell of burning solder. I guess I could set up a smell-o-vision...
  3. After some research it seems the cards that have the most success with this are cards that usually ran very hot. Before this my card ran at 70C idle and 85C with load at 100% fan speed. More good news is that after putting on my own thermal paste and putting the fan speed at 100%, the idle temp went down to 60C.

    Help me save my 8800gts

    Renegade's solution worked! Link
  5. QFT. I think the term everyone is throwing around is micro-fractures. I honestly had no idea what I was doing but it was worth a shot. And now its 2 days going strong with no problems! PROPS TO RENEGADE! I found the old post and he recommended this to me.
  6. My old MSI 8800 GTS OC was crashing and freezing my operating system. I heard from here that baking your video card in an oven is an option. I had nothing to lose because the card was unusable and I didn't think it was going to work but... it actually did. I took off my heat sink, removed the old thermal tape, put it in the oven with the GPU facing up, and let it bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. I put on fresh thermal gel and remounted the heat sink and it works like new. So if you have an old card laying around that doesn't work, try it out and post your results!

    Ouch sorry to hear... Hope you make it to FL okay! The plan was to have the owner of the car to have it fixed before I went. He's not going to have it fixed until almost the 4th of July.

    So... you can remove me from the events. The ride I was planning to drive has serious mechanical problems that needs funds greater that is in my bank account. It will be another month before the funds are available to fix it so once again, I will not be attending

    I will be arriving Wednesday evening-ish. It really depends on how the traffic is through Chicago. Put me down for Fatty's on Wednesday and golfing/setup on Thursday. Even though I won't be gaming, I still want to help set up.
