New graphics card problem
I just bought a new GTS450 graphics card and is PCI-Express x16 2.0. My motherboard is a asus a8000 that has a PCI-Express x16 slot. I'm not quite sure if it is 1.0 or 1.1. The card fits, but when I turn the computer on I get no singal from my monitor. I've tried all three ports (HDMI, DVI and D-Sub) on two monitors and I still got no signal. The computer sounds like it fully running. I've been reading everywhere that the PCI-Express x16 2.0 is fully backwards compatible with motherboards that are PCI-Express x16 1.1 but not 1.0. Is this true and is there a way to know which slot I have on my motherboard?
