For experts only! Bake your MacBook back into shape

For experts only! Bake your MacBook back into shape

Now here's a DIY fix that will make anybody nervous.

This blogger, who is a Web developer, had a MacBook Pro that wasn't working anymore. He even got the Blue Screen of Death. So what was his solution? He baked his laptop!

Yes, I literally took the broken laptop and shoved it in a hot kitchen oven for what felt like an eternity.

Putting broken electronics in the oven and magically fixing them is not exactly a new concept for the PC overclocking crowd. And I wasn’t a stranger to it either. I’ve successfully done this process before with a borked Nvidia graphics card, but somehow doing the same thing on a $2000 laptop still felt weird. Truth be told, at the time I was confident it would work. AND IT DID! (for now)

Take a look at what he did, and why it worked, here at his blog.
