Agreed, every 30 days is too much, that definitely indicates you have a problem.

The occasional seating issue on cards is to be entirely expected though.

Desktop PC’s for me are the worst. I now leave mine running 24 x 7. The big problem is when your Video card uses a different metal to the motherboard. This causes corrosion between the metals and eventually increases the resistance until the card becomes unreliable. Unseating and re-seating the card multiple times scrapes off the corrosion and allows it to work again. Some Desktop machines I have had have needed this every 2 or 3 months.
