Baking GPU question

Hello!

The short of it is that my mobility radeon hd 5870 in my G73jh is most definitely on it's way out. I don't really have the money at the moment to buy another one and happened to come across baking the card as a possible fix or at the least extend the cards' life because I have school starting on the 7th.

I looked up some guides and stuff but I really know very little about this kind of thing and was wondering if someone could clear some things up for me. The guides mention taking things off the card, I do know what the heat sink is but do I also need to take off anything else? Do I need to "repaste" after doing this? Any information would be appreciated. :)

    Follow Chastity's instructions from that forum.
    Always format with Fat32 when updating your vBIOS and remember to update your BIOS before starting and remember to also use a flash drive formatted with fat32 when updating your BIOS as well. Not following these steps with make things only worse.
