What do you mean by "bake"?
What do you mean by "bake" exactly? The only things that come to my mind are not something you would want to do to a video card unless you REALLY knew what you were doing. Which, if that were the case, you wouldn't be here asking.
Given the age of the card, it's not out of the question that components are starting to fail. There was also a known bug with either the 296.xx or 301.xx drivers from nVidia that would cause the screen to turn pink, and some of the colors would be inverted, then it would lock up the computer. That has since been fixed, but given the age of your card, it would probably be pretty low on the list of cards to get around to, so you might try an older release or newer if one exists.
