    Default pci-express

    Are there any ways to determine whether a pci-Express slot is working or not without testing it with a pci-express card?

    Also, if you have nothing to put in it, why does it matter if it's working or not?

    Stick a metal plate, if it makes like a hissing sound and some smoke, it was working

    Find a diagnostics program that tells you what card is in what slot... if it says PCIE16x1 - empty or something to that effect... well doesn't mean a damn thing, but might make you feel better.

    I guess if you knew where to stick the probes, you might be able to do a continuity test, but you start sticking metal probes onto a running motherboard, your probably going to blow something.

    My suggestion is to shut it off, unplug the power supply, unplug the motherboard from the power supply and carefully try and clean the grape jelly with something soft and damp... don't scrape at it. Let it dry before turning it back on. :P
