Oven bake method on sodimm ram possible? Answered

I have done succesful oven bakes on xbox 360 board and graphic cards. Now i have a sodimm ddr 1gb ram which doesnt work. The laptop does not boot with this ram . I thought that maybe an oven bake would work. I do 8 minutes on 230 C for the xbox 360 and graphic card. Is that overkill for one little ram chip? 

thanks in advance

What have you got to lose? Give it a go, it doesn't work now, if it doesn't work afterwards, chuck it in the trash with no additional loss. If it does work, you're ahead.
