Man fixes Blue Screen of Death on MacBook Pro by baking it in the oven

Ales Kocjancic, founder of Live Systems, was left with a MacBook that would boot only to show the “Blue Screen of Death.” He didn’t have AppleCare and other fixes found online wouldn’t work for him. So he baked it in an oven.
Kocjancic baked the laptop’s logic board in an oven for around seven minutes, then let it cool off before reassembling it completely. The result was a revived laptop, pictured below with an enthusiastic caption:
By heating up the logic board, solder joints that broke apart can cool back into place and restore connections. It’s a trick that some have used in video game consoles, graphics cards and more. That said, it’s mostly a temporary fix and it’s NOT recommended that you heat broken computer components in an oven. For Kocjancic at least, it was a successful hot fix. Sorry, I had to.
