PC half speed.

My old man is having problems with his Graphics card and monitor, he has to wiggle the card in its agp slot a few times to get a picture. He has also noticed that Belarc Advisor shows his AMD 3200xp running at 1.1 instead of 2.2 as it should be. He has tried 2 other Graphic cards and he still gets no signal unless he wiggles the card in the slot and restarts. Once the pc is up and running with the monitor on its fine. When he resets pc and tries to boot up it goes again.

I think its the battery... or the Motherboard is on its way out.

Any ideas?

i tend to think that there are dry solder joints on the socket.

I agree with johnnyrocker, sounds like the motherboard to me. may not be an economic repair.
