I am trying to help a friend who has a PC equipped with a MS-3709 (K9N6SGM-V) motherboard but that requires a more powerful video card than the onboard GEFORCE6100. I have tried 2 different PCI Express cards but neither has been recognised by the BIOS. I have cleared the BIOS a couple of times.

The current BIOS is 1.B0, I see from the Live Update utility that there is a 1.C0 version available, does anyone know if an upgrade might sort out the problem.

If not does anyone have any suggestions to make ? The 2 cards I have tried are a GeForce 7300 and a GeForce 7600GS, both of which are recognised and work in another PC.

Either the gpu does not seat properly or the pcie slot is broken.

The card is seated correctly, well at least the fan is turning. A standard PCI socket next detects a video card so I assume you are correct and that socket is fauly. Here's hoping the PCI-E X1 socket is OK as I've ordered a card for that.
