  1. Check BIOS that it's set to PCIe and any onboard is turned off

    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.
  3. What card are you using?

    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.
  5. Just asking cause as far as we know, he might not even be using a PCI-E card. :P

    Could try updating the BIOS.
