Hello
you say this happens when the pc is on !?
You should only do this if the computer is turned off, if it is shaken while it is running, it is not highly recommended.
Now do you still have the problem if the computer is turned off and then restarted after change?

You have to open the computer, and check if there is not an element that could move and cause a malfunction
check if everything is well fixed, if a cable does not block a fan for example etc!
