PCIe Port Dead?

I have moved a couple cards around in my PC due to getting a new Network Card. My 3.0 USB Card has been moved to a x1 Port. The USB Card does not work though and am not sure if it worked before I moved it. Is there anything in my Device Manager that would let me know if a Port was not working like a Yellow Asterisk? I don't want to move any other cards to check if the USB Card works there, it is a Pain. I am about ready to buy a new 3.0 USB Card. Any help on deciding if the Port works is appreciated.

It seems that your USB ports are working normally.
Isn't the ASMedia the your PCIe card?

Or the VIA USB eXtensible Host Controller?

OK Guys, I appreciate the help. So a Yellow Asterisk would be showing if there were a Bad Slot. Well I don't see that so I just assume the card is bad and do my part to stimulate the economy at NewEgg.com. Thanks,

A Yellow Exclamation mark would be showing if Windows has detected a problem. Perhaps, then, there is no power to the USB adapter.

In that case, it would be worthwhile checking that it is firmly seated in its slot, and the 4-pin Molex connector is connected to a Molex power rail.

Is the card recognized by the BIOS?

iko22 and HAVOC both are good ideas and will check them out. Thanks very much.

Does the manufacturer have drivers?

Now that I think about it, I got it from China and it did not come with a CD. I have not had anything plugged into it until recently. I guess it never has worked. :) Well I have ordered a new one and it is coming from the good ole USA. I assume it will have a Driver CD. Thanks,

I don't think that 7 has built in drivers for USB 3.
