No, I can't re-test the card in the another computer.

The problem might be software or hardware related.

As some users pointed out, the quickest thing you could do is test the system with all its components (CPU, RAM, Chipsets) set to the default clocks/voltages (you do this by loading the default/failsafe settings in your CMOS).

If it's software related, it could be a device driver problems or due to an instable OS.

If it's hardware, testing the card in another system might give you clues about a faulty PSU or Motherboard.

I put another card in my PC and ran 3DMark Vantage. It ran flawlessly several times. So it's safe to conclude that it's not my neither OS, driver's or the benchmark's fault. It's not PSU's fault either because this new card uses more power than 9800GT did.
The conclusion is that 9800GT is faulty.

I have actually already upgraded my card. Didn't you read my post?

Someone could have lent it to you just for testing, you didn't specify.

What if it was something else, the PSU or the motherboard, for instance? biggrin.gif

Well if it was PSU or motherboard, then the same problem would appear with the new card.
BTW, the BIOS reading says that my 12V line is actually 12.4V. Is this anything to worry about?
