My PVR-350's heatsink fell off because of poor manufacturing.

I re-applied it with thermal heat-sink epoxy from Loctite.

Is your heatsink intact? Consider pulling the card out and tugging on the heatsink to check.

If it's loose or barely hanging on, that might be a cause of your problems. That MPEG chip gets warrrmm.

(also make sure there's some airflow past it if possible)
