Windows 7: Got some kind of problem with my PC

Stess tests are used to check for stability and diagnose problems with a system. BSODs and other problems are quite often caused because a component fails only when under a heavy load... or when it overheats

Chances are you solved your problem temporarily when you cleaned the dust, but if there's another slot you can move the card to, I would recommend trying that.

currently placed in some sort of blue thing, i can see another one of these "blue" things higher up on the motherboard, as well as a white one.

if that makes any sense, heh

Move it to the highest slot on the motherboard where it will fit. Make sure you shut down your computer completely, disconnect the power cord, and grab something made of metal to clear static from your body before touching anything (every time).

Ok.. good motherboard BTW.. the higher blue slot is where you want to move it to.. for future reference that is a PCIe x16 slot. Some graphics cards use the smaller PCIe slot (PCIe 1.0) so I wasn't sure what you were working with
