will pcie x16 card run on motherboard with pcie x 16 but mode x8?
card is msi vn210 md512h pci-e x16 ver 2.0
motherboard gigabyte ga-m61sme-52l, as i said, pci-e x 16 but running in x8 mode.
when i try it, the comuter does't start at all, i'm wondering if its because of card incpompatibility, or maybe it should work, but the card is broken? Of course i will try this card in other computer, but not today...
In theory, it should work just fine, but looking at the specs for your motherboard, it does come with a PCI Express x16 Graphics Card Support List. If your test of the VN210 MD512H is successful in another computer, then I would suspect you need to stay within the limitations of the GPU supported list provided.
thanks for reply.
i tried updating bios, but still nothing... well maybe you right, maybe cards not from this list just don't work... or maybe this card is broken, i'll check it tomorrow at my brothers'
