How to fix the VGA modul


Hi there. I am Wika, from Bali.

My iMac (i7 3.4 GHz model) just had the VGA issue. The problem started with the laggy and skipped mouse cursor. Additionally, the display was sometimes flickering. I though it was due to the HDD (or the RAM compatibility) as it was quite old machine. Then, I replaced the HDD with an SSD. It did work smoothly for a couple day until  the flickers appeared on a regular basis and the booting was stuck.

After searching on the internet, I convinced that it is due to the VGA fault. I found ‘the baking method - by heating the VGA in the oven (200 degrees about 8-10 minutes)’for 2010-2011 model, but not for this model.

I would like to know how to open the VGA and what is the best way to repair it. Is the baking method will work for this model? I found only one video on youtube repairing this (the slim) model. However, the movie quality, the content and the way his recording the video was very low :(. Sorry for being honest :(

Please help if you have found the solution.

Thank you very much.
