    This may sound funny but take some wax paper like the sandwich kind and wipe the gold part of the agp card, the male part then reinsert . Check the fan while your at it .

    He's thinking there may be corrosion (or just plain crap) on the contacts.
    Unlikely but possible, it doesn't hurt to check.

    Maybe try updating the vid card drivers.
