Unhappy Killed my 6800GT - did the AGP slot do it??

Oh dear.

Gave my old computer to my father.

In transit in the boot of my car, its 6800 GT managed to pop slightly out of the AGP slot in the Asus motherboard.

Didn't notice this and switched the machine ON.

Got corrupt BIOS loading screen with funny text, then corrupt Windows logo and desktop.

Discovered the problem, reseated the card, but still the same problem.

Tried it in another machine.

Same issue.

Its dead i think.

Just shocks me to think that you can kill a card just by switching your machine on whilst your vid card is slightly badly seated.

Anyone experienced this or have a comment?
