Default PC not booting?

I have a really odd problem with my pc right now. I just got a new video card and when its fully inserted into the agp slot it seems that my pc wont boot up. When I pull out the video card a little bit from the agp slot the pc boots up. I dont know why its doing this. Yesterday I finally got my pc to detect my video card and it ran perfect then I go to boot up my pc this time and it powers on but wont boot up. If anyone knows of this problem please let me know what to do thanks.

I'm not entirely sure but if there is a metal part of the card touching it then it might be shorting it out.

You could maybe use a little insulating tape on there to stop it making contact and shorting.

Doesnt really matter, as long as you stop the contact. Just dont put it anywhere thats gonna get hot.
