    Could be a loose connection.. either a bad molex cable or socket on the card.

    That's happened to me before with bad molexes. One was with a Radeon 9800 Pro, the other with a Zalman fan on a Geforce 6800nu. The second failure killed the card. Try a different molex connector--or if a lot of them are bad, get a new PSU.

    me too. if you try another molex connector has no effect, check the lead in the molex.

    9800xt is older one, only 2 months?

    Glad to here you fixed it. Back with my old Sapphire 9800pro I had the the same exact thing happen, changed the molex and it worked like a champ.

    One question, though. The Radeon 9800 is a four-year-old card. How can yours be 2 months old?
