the the problem i having is that my 8800gts will only display in my second sli slot.
when i put in the first one nothing like its not even there but in the background after a little bit i hear the windows chime, so i think windows booted up with no video...
before doing this: i had a gt520 as primary video and a 8500gt i was useing as a physx card, was just messing around, but any ways i took out both cards and put the 8800gts i just baught used in and it would not bootup in slot 1 of 2 pci-e slots i have i put in the second and it boots up fine ,but it runs in 8x not 16x ....
i went into bios and forgot i set it to sli so i could see the physx card when i was messing around ..
i switched it bach before i installed the 8800gts and there was no video ,would not respond,
how do i get my slot 1 back

The First PCI-E lane should be the default Lane, so have you tried going into the BIOS and just reverting all settings to default (should be a hotkey like F10 or something).
You may have set the PCI-E boot device to Lane 2.
yea i set everything to default, then i had to put my old card back it because the gts8800 would not respond.i went into bois and switch it from singal to dual and it worked again in slot 2 , slot 1 will not work but it will work with the old card, i can only get 8x on the 8800 alone but when i put try the old card in slot 1 and take out the 8800 i get 16x from the gt520 w i just dont understand ...
it cant be a pwer issuse i dont think because it works in slot 2..
i can put the old card in mainslot and 8800 in scondary spot it works fine i see both cards and i can set the 8800 as physx if i want ..... i have a m2n-sli mobo with 802 bios i kow its old and what # should i update it too theres like 4 of them???can could this be the issue, or do i need to do somekinda jumping...
