I think it was loose all the time because when i opened it, it was upside down. Maybe because we cleaned it with some air.

The little loops tend to break or pull loose over time. They weren't very well designed. They only fix is to solder in a new loop or use the thermal adhesive I showed you earlier.

I think thermal ahesive is the cheapest since i don't have soldering equipment.

I have another question. Reffering to my pics, do I have a PCI Express slot and also can I have a DDR2 Video card if I have a DDR1 computer?

It has an AGP slot for a video card as I explained in your other thread. You can have a video card with DDR2, DDR3, and even DDR5 in a system that uses DDR1 memory. The video memory is only used by the video card and is separate from the system memory

Your system has an AGP slot rather than PCI-Express. That card you linked will not work with your motherboard.

AGP cards on NewEgg- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=AGP%204X%2f8X
