    perhaps its not seated well, did you try taking it out and putting it back firmly yet?

    could be just a bad contact case...

    The graphic card is not receiving enough power so it's a hardware problem.I recommend consulting OPs in the hardware section.

    Unless he's a technician or has enough experience I wouldn't recommend he does it himself and should get professional assistance.

    Never advise anybody of doing something that could in any way endanger him or do damage to a PC.If something goes wrong you could be legally hold responsible.

    If the Card didn't has an extra connector for Power, means it get whole power from the PCI-X Slot, remove the card and use an soft Pencil Rubber for to 'clean' the connector feets. Also, take an toothbrush and use cleaning alcohol for to clean the PCI-X Slot's connectors! Not use to much alcohol!!

    May the op will post the exact Brand and Model of his Graphic Card too??

    Not forget to take a close look at the Capacitor heads!! If an capacitor fails, the out come could be alike!!

    Not if the adviser is an private person on an forum! That applies to companies or those who charging for such infos! All the work is done by and within the (momentary) place of who's asking for the advice!

    pisthai I was waiting for you or Mr.X to answer Op's question cause I know you both are trusted in technical issues.But I still have the same question;"who should do it".You never know who has the enough experience to do the job regardless of this graphic card matter.Ethically speaking there is a responsibility,I believe.

    Maybe it is also good advice to hire an electrician to change a burned out light bulb in your house, especially considering the dangerous voltages that might be present. ;)

    Reseat card and clean contacts with rubber eraser is good advice.

    if the computer is old, the psu's power and effiency may have degraded. also there may be some mainboard/card-slot problem

    What is the exact model of your Quadro card?
    The both the FX 3450 & 4000 require additional power either by 6pin or molex connector.

    Sometimes they do however release a card without additional power. These cards tend to be problematic.
    Good example is the MSI 750 Ti without power. Unstable on some platforms. While Asus, Gigabyte, etc, have additional power & are rock solid on all platforms.

    You're welcome. :)

    Actually, I expect people tend to ask for help here mainly so that they can learn to solve problems on there own, rather that just hand it over to someone more technically skilled. The OP in this case will learn more by digesting whatever advice he can collect from others. Removing and reinstalling a video card is not something to be deathly afraid of. Or even removing and installing a power supply, if that is what it comes down to.

    There are people in other sections of this forum doing potentially more risky things to their PC's than re plugging a graphics card!
