I am using a new asrock motherboard 4CoreDuel-Sata2. Now I tried to install an ATI X1950 Pro Graphics card. It only went in so far, leaving about half of the copper plate out of the slot. I have been using this Graphics card for a little while but I keep have a pc freeze. Do you think it is the graphics cards inability to go all the way in to the MB, which is causing this to happen. Apart from that I am not sure just how to upgrade the bios, which was another thought in my mind. I would be interested to know what you Guys think about this problem.
Thank you so much.

Hi, I managed to get my Graphics card to fully install. However, I still am getting freezing of my pc. Not sure what to look at next.

Looks like I resolved this problem, myself. I bought a new heatsink and fan and installed them. At the moment, all is well.
