Why is that and how do I fix it? Nothing to fix, it's in powersave mode. ALL recent AMD, intel, nV solutions reduce to single lane in 2D and low power mode, and then ramp up for gaming. Having open unused lanes wastes energy. Related resources Do PCIe Half Mini Wireless Cards Fit into PCIe X1 slots?

It shouldn't make any difference, as it's set by the mobo BIOS. Interestingly, I just checked CPU-Z on my set up (Asus P5N-E nForce 650i) and it shows x16 in both Link-up & supported boxes. septic March 27, 2008 10:49:16 PM Just asking cause as far as we know, he might not even be using a PCI-E card.
