Strange problem w/8400GS

  1. I don't use this card anymore because I have a new one, bue I might be using the GS in another build. anyway...
    Ever since I changed the heatsink/fan - I had to remove a clip from under the motherboard - it has beeped at me on startup. I get 7 beeps, but 7 is meant to mean CPU circuitry fault in AMI bios; the card still works with reduced performance (down to about 40fps on trials) though. However, I tried it on my new build and I still get the beeps. Put my 8800GT in and it's fine. Someone suggested it had lost a pipeline, although I don't have a clue. Any help appreciated. Thanks

    (it's a 256mb PNY 8400GS PCI-E btw)

    The card is damaged. Is the interconnect on the video card clean?
