PciE slot saying "empty"
Everybody, I'm having recently a big issue with my GPU/Mobo.
During some maintenance on my system, I had the GPU connected to the mobo through a vertical GPU holder (my case was a mini itx Raven Rvz01). Accidentally while System was On i've broken 2 rear pins of the holder. The pc after that froze. Initially I thought, well, it's just the holder, so i bought a new case for my rig to finally use my gpu connected directly into the PCI-E slot (a bought a NZXT Manta). But connecting the GPU to it ended up in a blank screen, initially I was like, ok the gpu is dead, so what I did was to connect the the PC through the iGPU, but after I starded thinking it wasn't gpu fault but mobo, in fact after managing to boot the pc up through it I realised, also the network card and the Bluetooth stopped working, plus in the board explorer of the bios, at the PCI-E slot it was saying empty, like it wasn't detecting the gpu, so I thought the accident with the gpu holder caused a short that killed the PCI-E slot and network card. So I RMAed the board and got a new "repaired" one, but same problem again, GPU is not detected on the PCI-E slot saying it is empty. With the new board the network card is working fine now, the Bluetooth instead is working odd (difficulties in connecting and findings devices), so I was like, ok also the GPU is dead so let me check the post debug leds, and I noticed that the leds are not detecting any problem, they are supposed to stay lit when a fault is detected but debug just works fine as expected, either I boot up through the iGPU and the GPU not detected. So I thought even if is statistically difficult to happen, that I received another faulty motherboard. In your opinion what is the problem? GPU or mobo? Why it doesn't detect at all the GPU, with the board explorer saying it is empty?
