Trying to fix my old computer (now a siblings) and first thought the 7800 GTX was bad since it boots with a X800 GTO in slot 1 and seems to run fine but the 7800 GTX boots and seems to run fine in PCIe 4 slot though.
1: Just run it in slot 4 and be done with it? Won't effect performance?
2: What are some specific ways I can test the card and motherboard for power issues? (all voltages read normal except -12v being -10.43v as reported by hwmonitor.
(edit: voltmeter check of -12v shows it at -11.81v while pc is on)
3: Perhaps a good old fashioned bios reset?
4: ? (what else you got you me)
