Default Re: Old 286 motherboard cries for help

I suspect a bad solder joint, like a used Radeon 9800 Pro I had in 2007.
(That card seemed to be fine at first, but then turned around, and when just in a utility program, the screen was corrupted! Then on reboot, kept getting a corrupted BIOS screen, random coloured letters and I thought I saw blinking letters as well.
A dummy at the time, I was hoping an alcohol bath would fix it. I noticed that moving it around in the AGP slot, would result in a change of what's on the screen.)
