It would appear that your motherboard is not detecting your PCIe video card. Since that video card works in other motherboards it must be a problem with your motherboard. If you are sure you have the BIOS settings correct then its likely time to return that motherboard. If you really want to confirm its a motherboard problem try a different video card in that slot. As a last resort you could try flashing to the latest BIOS for that board. Its a long shot though.

I concur.

You can get just a cheap 30 dollar PCIe video card to test.

Newegg.com - MSI N8400GS-D256H GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

or if you have a friend with one that will let you borrow it for 5 minutes.
