Why use CARDKEEPER?
One of the most common reasons for a PC system to fail (DOA) or malfunction at
any time, no matter how expensive the components or meticulous the manufacturing
and testing process, is the simple fact that AGP and PCI add in cards can fail
to work properly due to becoming dislodged from their motherboard slots during
shipment or any movement of the PC. This problem, which is well known within the
industry, has been publicly acknowledged by leading PC corporations Intel and
Intel AGP Developers Forum:
"...shock and vibration conditions during shipment and cassis induced card
back-out result in the need for a secondary anchor of the (AGP) card....it is
recommended that all PC's incorporate an AGP retainer in addition to the current
I/O mounting bracket retention method." http://agpforum.org.
DELL Computer recent patent application:
