I'm not really getting what your trying to say. By Dota, do you mean the custom game in Warcraft 3?

If your screen goes fuzzy, and if you move the cord around it fixes it, it might be a problem with the cord.

If you mess with the cable and it fixes the problem, it's most likely the cable. . .Try a replacement one if you can find one.

When you move the plug, is it at the monitor end or the computer? Tighten the connections first. If it's on the computer end you might want to open the machine and reseat the video card, if you have one, and make sure it's secure

Just ground yourself to some near-by metal (like a filing cabinet) before touching anything.

Pull the power plug out of your Power Supply.

If there is a screw holding the expansion plate on, remove it first.

Then, when you handle the gfx card, remember to just touch the green plastic parts. It should be fine. Wiggle it around slightly to see if it is loose within the Motherboard slot. Either pull it all the way out and re-seat it, or gently/firmly push the card into the slot.

Put the screw back into the expansion plate and power it up.

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

It should be fine. Just ground yourself before touching any of the components; ie take a screwdriver and touch it to any metal surface around you while holding onto the metal shaft. This will discharge the static electricity on your body and you should be ok to handle your computer.

Let us know how it works. :thumbsup:

You know how you drag you feet across a carpeted floor and then touch someone and give them a little shock?. that is what blueandgold03 is refering to. As long as the computer is unplugged from the wall your safe. The reason to discharge static electricity is to protect the sensitive components inside your computer.

By "loose it" I assume you mean "release the static electricity onto the motherboard". Releasing static electricity while holding a computer component will RUIN your computer, as that little shock can burn holes in the microchips, and other damage can also occur.

As I do not know the exact anatomy of your motherboard, I cannot answer the second question, unless you be more descripitve.

hmmm, sometimes mine gets stuck. You do have to use quite a bit of force. You shouldn't have to use full strength to rip it out though.
