A new motherboard is in order
I personally would only attempt to fix the old one if I was bored with nothing else to do. Just so i could say I fixed it and that would be highly improbable

Didn't realize that was an option you would consider. You should be able to disable it in the BIOS

PCI slots have the spaces, etc. in the same place on every slot.
You may be looking at another PCI-e slot, http://peripherals.about.com/od/computerte.../whatispcie.htm
What's the board manufacturer and model?

According to your specs, you have:
1 PCI-e x16 slot
1 PCI-e x1 slot
2 PCI expansion slots

But you said the PCI-E x16 would work in the PCI-E x1...here's an interesting thing I noticed today. On the "top" of the graphics card, there's a small row of gold lines (like the one's on the bottom that get fitted into the PCI-E x16 slot, except it's smaller. That couldn't go anywhere, right?
I can't tell you what to do , I can only tell you what I would do.
I don't game and I don't use the PCI-e video card which I own, preferring to use the simplicity of onboard. It's adequate for what I do.
If you game, get a card that will allow you to continue to game...and for which you have a workable slot...that's the cheapest alternative (usually the ones I choose are the most inexpensive).

<<But you said the PCI-E x16 would work in the PCI-E x1...>>
I think you are hallucinating ...I said no such thing. I'm the person who told you that what you described as a PCI slot...was in fact a PCI-e slot.
