  1. Hi,
    I have MSI K8N 939 Main Board, it has PCIe slot X16, but when i start my PC, and after the ram test it says ( on the black screen ):
    PCIE VGA Link: X1

    is there a problem with the connection between the main board and the video card ?

    Thanx.....

    >>Solved:
    I've just swaped the video card to the other PCIe slot in the main board and now it display X16 when starting up the PC.

    You tell us... If you have no problems with the video, don't worry about the indication
