Driver is available, but as you are saying that the device is very old .... usually the life span of a GPU is not much more than more or less 3 years and after that it is expected to fail upto some extent.

Lol yeah, its got one blown cap and artifacts like a mother under load. But its still usable and still passes burnin test and benchmarks. Which is why I only have this card for really quick tests and dont keep it inside as a physx card.

Oh sorry it took so long for me to update but I have been trying a lot of different things, and I wanted to put everything into one thread.

First here is my SC of disk management:


On the drive I ran EASEUS data recovery and I was able to recover all of my data with no problem, It just took about a day for the whole process of scanning a 1TB drive, and then recovering 1TB worth of data. (Which is why my stripped drive is now full).


Second, I tried both of my Graphics cards:

The one I am using now GPU#1 works in PCIe slot 1 and PCIe slot 2 but will not run WEI or fur mark.
GPU#2 works in PCIe slot 2 mostly. When I put it in slot 1 the computer turns on but doesn't go to POST.

I also tried an old 5870(?) I had that I know doesn't work fully, but should of still booted, and it was the same issue as GPU#2 in both PCIe slots. No POST.

I also tried my "For testing purposes only" GeGorce 8600gtx, and that was the same thing as the 5870. No POST in either slot.

I really don't think that every single graphics card I own is not working. So I have MSI's customer service number, and I will call them up tomorrow during their hours, and see if I can RMA my board.

If a new board doesn't work then I will call up XFX and RMA my graphics cards.

YUP! and you may be right!

Is there any way to test PCIe Slots directly?

Is far as I know, we cannot test the motherboard components.

Ok, well then after I RMA, I will either update this thread or create a new one referring to this thread, letting everyone know whether or not that solved the problem.
