I have a couple PCI-X SCSI controllers and they work in a PCI slot. However, not all PCI-X cards are designed to work in a PCI slot. robairlb February 4, 2010 6:21:33 AM it is a pci express card and i managed to fix it actually my card was defective so i bought a new one and works great thanks all for your help Can't find your answer ?
