I have it running with the on board graphics so I know all my connections are good and my OS runs. I'll do cmos, then test it, if that fails, ill try new pci-e slot, if that fails i'll do Bios update, if that fails, I guess I will be at the mercy of the Asus RMA process mad.gif

Here is what I have done.

1. Clean PCI e slot with air duster.
2. reinstall card
3. clear CMOS
Still no go...
4. Power down and try again.
No go
5. Remove card and move to second PCI-e slot on the board.
6. Reset CMOS
Worked!

So now is there a way to find out if the first PCIE slot is the problem? Or do I just need to remove the card and try and put it back into the first one? First time with an issue like this...

Have you went into bios under the advanced tab and made sure all of the pcie settings are okay in there? Just to make sure slot 1 didn't get disabled or something somehow.

I have no idea how to check that. In my bios under advanced, pch config, PCI express config there are only 3 options. Dmi link, aspm support, PCIE speed. Not much more for PCIE in bios

So I tried to put the card back in the first PCIE and it was a no go... Called asus they said to update to newest bios and call them if it still does not work this just keeps getting worse. At least if it was the GPU I still had a working rig, without the motherboard I'm done for at least 2 weeks. Oh well

Updating the BIOS is easy and free. It's worth a shot. I updated my BIOS before I even installed Windows. Lol. I would honestly even try uninstalling/reinstalling drivers, or even do a fresh OS install if it had the chance of keeping me from having to RMA my board.

There is also PCIE options under System Agent Configuration. This is where it shows what slots are enabled and what speeds they're running at.

well I updated the Bios, and it worked, got into windows yay... then took shut everything off to put it all back togeather and poof no work no more! this is starting to piss me off!

reinstalled the new Bios again and tryed it... got into bios and monitor lost connection when it tryed to boot into windows, still works fine in pcie 2.

Under the bios PCI e setting all 3 pcie slots are set 2 Auto

This may seem redundant...but with everything put back the way you want it...flash the bios again? *shrug*

I can't flash the bios with the GPU in PCIE #1 slot because I get bout output to the monitor. I have to switch back to PCIE #2 slot to flash the bios then move the card back to #1 and hope it works.

Are you flashing from within the BIOS?

Try flashing back to an older BIOS.

Also - "load optimised defaults" before you flash.
