Is there a way that I can test my PCI-Express 16x slot? Or even my motherboard in full to see if its shot? Thanks in advance.

I take it that PCI-e video card is not working? Have you ried a standard PCI video card to see if that works? With the PCIe card removed of course. Has the motherboard ever worked? Is it a new board you suspect of being defective?

All my games one day started to get terrible FPS. BF2 went from 20-50fps to 0-15. I had an ATI X800 Pro and figured maybe it died or something so I bought a XFX Geforce 7900GT but it didn't help. Tested my ram when I had my AMD 3700 SanDiego clocked @ 2.4 and got 116 errors. Dropped it back to normal and raised the CAS Latency back to 3 and got no errors. Still wasn't sure though so I bought 2 gigs of OCZ Platinum but it didn't help either. I have done the Sandra 07 test on my CPU and it was fine. I have system mechanic 06 and have tried everything on that but no help along with Defragging, spyware scans, virus scans and emptying temp folders. Figured maybe it was my motherboard or something but I still have no idea. Any ideas?
