ASUS P5E3 Deluxe Motherboard - Quadro FX card won't work in 1st slot.

ASUS P5E3 Deluxe Motherboard - Quadro FX card won't work in 1st slot.

The board has 2 X PCI-E slots ( in case you want to use Crossfire )

QX9650 Xtreme CPU
PNY Quadro FX 1700 (PCI-E X 16)
4 GB RAM
DUAL SATA Drives

After assembly, the board begins to post (ie: beeps once), but produces no video output with the card in the first slot. The first slot is recommended as the default slot for single video card operation.

When the card is in the second slot, video is detected.

Although it works in the second slot ... I'd still prefer that it be in the default slot (and working).

Any ideas? Is the first motherboard slot "pooched"? or is it a BIOS issue? ... ??? I'm a bit puzzled on this one.

Thanks in advance for any help....
