It could be a faulty PCI-E lane. (Chipset) If he does game make sure that the other PCI-E slot can run at 16x instead of 8x. smile.gif

No gaming but how would a person make sure it can run at 16x?

I have been so busy and forgot all about telling what it was that was wrong. It was the video card that went bad.
