Okay the AMD sub was no help do maybe yall can help? Open | Hardware
Edit:I forgot the picture
My radeon HD5850 only functions if i apply weight on the cooler which pushes the heat sink down onto these caps (in red) if not its just a black screen. Any ideas on how to make it work?

attach an image otherwise, the other responses seem about right.
usually gpu sockets have a little clip that secures the GPU in place.
additionally you can try to use some >70% isopropyl to clean the metal contacts

First off, there is no picture here.
Second off, you likely have an issue with the caps not having a good connection.
