i've got a strange problem, was hoping someone could help me.
Any media server software i install (xmbc, serviio, nero media home, plex) on my windows 7 system makes my pcie slots non functional and my graphics card completely undiscoverable, even in my bios, though there is still power going through it because the fans are running. The slot and my card work until my system is rebooted after installing the software, and every time i uninstall the software my graphics card works again.
Im thinking its doing something to the pcie slots, ive tried my card in all 3 on my mobo with the same result, also tried with an older graphics card i have still with no love. Ive installed latest drivers for my mobo and graphics card and that didnt work either.

motherboard- asrock professional z77
