I Have Hp Pavilion a1210 desktop PC.
I just Downloaded Everest(freeware)to check out my system parts and slots !!
Then it showed that my PC has got an PCI-Express x16 Slot !!
But when i opened my CPU , I could'nt find any PCI-Express x16.
Pls Help me !!
Welcome to the joys of proprietary components. When HP ordered these motherboards from the manufacturer, they probably stated, there is no need for a PCI-E slot since the motherboard has on-board video and had them not include the slot to reduce costs.
You can see, in the image, where the PCI-E slot should have been and Everest is reading that the motherboard should have a PCI-E slot, but thanks to HP, you do not.
