also if you have moved the pc make sure the video card is fully home in its slot , the heavy cards do tend to pop up a little at the back if the computer gets bumped about on a move.

just for info and really pointless to this post.

if i move a pc from place to place i will always check all cards are fully seated , and the cpu heatsink and fan are still in place.
i have seen cards lift and heatsinks snap the clips , socket A and socket 370 both very good at doing that with a after market copper heatsink and fan installed.
