I'd say that one cause is that the cpu is not seated properly, otherwise, the PSU may be faulty?

A faulty hard drive would not cause this...If you have not touched the CPU and it was working fine before, there should be no need to reseat it.

I'd say at least a quality 450w PSU. Your Asus P5kpl will 'handle' the card fine but you may not see too much improvement if your cpu's not up to it. What are the rest of your system specs?

Intel core 2 duo E7500 @ 2.93 ghz
ram - 2gb
hdd - 320 gb
gpu - intel g31 / 33 express chipset

will 450w will be enough or its just ok and how is my cpu will it use the card will full efficiency .
