Faulty PCI-E Slot? -Asus P5SD2 TM/S

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a computer with a Pentium D, 750W HDD, HD4530 (I think) and a crap Asus P5SD2 TM/S motherboard.

After installing a wireless PCI adapter the graphics card stopped displaying a picture on the monitor.

I have tried:
Removing the newly installed hardware.
Replacing the monitor
Replacing the graphics card.

So it appears to be a fault with the PCI-E slot.

Any suggestion or should I buy a new mother board? And if so, any cheap recommendations?

Thanks

This same thing happened to me. Try plugging the video card into a different motherboard to see if it still works. My P5N-D broke one of my 9800 GTX's when I put them in SLi for some reason. If the card still works, then you know it's a PCI-e problem.

EDIT: I see you've replaced the video card which makes my advice above pointless. But yes, the slots can be bad, and that's what yours sounds like. Can you send it back under warranty? You could get it replaced and all slots would work again.

Have you snapping a pin inside, is there any dust been pushed in that is stopping the connection?

primary GPU is set to PCI-e

update/reset bios, just to eliminate software?

// after googleing it seems there's no o/b VGA, have you got a pci vga card anywhere, in the old old pcs?

Thanks for the replies.

"Have you snapping a pin inside" Huh?

The slot has been cleared of dust and no old pci vga :-\\
