PCI card with short?

hey guys.

my motu 424 revision 3 pci card (or my computer) is acting a bit funky.

my computer wont boot with it in. at first i could pop it in a out (this was incredibly annoying) and it would eventually let me use it after re-assigning everything but now its just biting the dust.

im poor. I want to give my situation some TLC.

when i used to push on the card upon booting it would sometimes work.

I thought it might be the pins but everything looks good.

The audio wire (in reality the 6 pin firewire cable) is good. the input for the audio wire looks a bit tarnished.. is a blast of contact cleaner okay there?

im not spraying it on my mother board contacts. too risky for me.

is there anything about these cards that is known to go? I am not the original owner. I have been thinking about sending it back to motu for a test but im not sure if they will care to look at it.
