Just put a new pc together, working fine on one pci-e slot, but want work on primary slot. I have a asus p5b deluxe motherboard and a e-geforce 7900 gs video card. Should not the video card work in the primary slot (blue on this board)? When I put the card into the primary slot, want bootup, one long beep and three short beeps. According to the specks, it looks to me like the card would run best on the primary slot?????????????/ help

Hey samork,

Based on the Beep Code, and the fact that your card works in the other PCI-x slot, it sounds like maybe you MoBo is no good.

Have you tried updating the MoBo drivers?

How do I check the motherboard primary slot without replacing a new motherboard? Everything else
works just fine. Replaceing the mb would be a pretty big job. Since the video card runs at x4 in secondary
slot, could it not be the video card? I have 2 or 3 video cards but none are pci-e. I know that the secondary
slot can run max x4 and I think the video card could run x16, not sure? Any other ideas?

You could always RMA it - they will test it and then you'll know for sure either way, otherwise I'm at a loss...

Have you updated the BIOS also?

Then you best bet is to return it and have them test it. It is certainly not normal behaviour - the primary PCI-x16/8 slot should work off the bat without the necessity of changing any settings/drivers. The only factor would have been the BIOS, but as you said that has been updated.

I would also do a google search based on the key word "problem" with your motherboard and GPU name. That may give you an indication whether or not it is a common thing for that combination of MoBo and card.

Sorry I wasn't much help....

There are no "cheap" ways to see if it's the mobo slots. The cheapest that I know is to take it to a shop that has the expensive tools to do this testing - and that usually runs about $70 for the test.
