    Default AsRock z68 Extreme3 gen3 and gfx?

    Hi there!
    I think I have a similar problem as some others.

    Iīve bought a Z68 Extreme3 motherboard a couple of days ago but canīt get my graphics card to work in the upper PCIE slot (PCI-E slot marked PCIE2)
    But it works in the lower slot (PCIE4)
    And onboard graphics works...

    I have tried to:
    Flash BIOS iīve used 1.2 (on the board at delivery) 1.3 and the beta bios to.
    And I have had the motherbord taken out to run it on a cardboard sheet to make sure there where no shorts behind the card

    Starting to get somewhat annoyed at this now, any sugestions?

    Regards
    Sebastian Eriksson

    could try disabling usb3 sata3 see if that has any effect,then try booting up with gpu in the working slot,set first display as the other non working pci-e slot then shut down,install gpu in non working pci-e slot and reboot and see if you get display.......then you can see if its a bios detection problem with that non working pci-e slot

    Hi there, tried this, but i canīt chose which PCIE that should be first display
    the only choises i have in Bios(UEIF) is PCI Express (Default one), PCI and onboard

    And disabeling USB3 and SATA3 didenīt give anything either =(

    Would be rather fun to have another PCI-E device that is not a GPU to try if the 16x port would recognize that.

    I found in my computer properties that i only have
    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 1
    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 4
    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 5
    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 6
    Are theese correspondant do the slots on the motherboard or something?

    Found another strange thing.

    When my Radeon 4850 is located in the PCIE2, the x16 slot, then PCI2, where i hade my Soundcard, didenīt work and now I moved it up to the PCI1 slot and it works.

    Default Great sucess!!!

    Tonight i finally got some GREAT SUCESS!!

    Something was wrong with the CPU mounting, the guy on the helpdesk at the store i bought the card frome thought it could be a problem whit a bent pin in the cpu socket, so I dismounted the CPU but couldenīt find any bent pins
    so sad and with almost no hope a mounted it all together again.
    Tried to boot with one screen in the onboard vga and one in my 4850 an BOY I WAS SUPRISED when i recived signal from my 4850 in the PCIe x16 slot!!

    Thank you for your inputs here!

    Think i have to celebrate now!
