Yes, I think that was the main reason why she kept on getting the blue screens. Especially after she told me a repair shop got her to buy a new graphics card, and that the problem didn't go away.

The PC is a Dell from four years ago: Dell wanted to make it easier for users to add expansion cards (mainly because they were always getting flack from idiot journos who slated the products because you needed to use a screwdriver). So these grey Dell towers have a long green clip which is meant to hold the cards in place instead of a screw, but the clip was plastic, and didn't always do its job
