  1. Hi all

    I have H61M-ITX board with 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (blue @ x16 mode)
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H61M-ITX/

    I wan to install there PCI Express x 4 card:

    I made clean Win XP SP3 install + all MB drivers on top. After I inserted pcie x4 card and boot up. Win XP didn't detect the card (though leds on card are blinking from periodically)

    I then tied LAN adapter I have to check if all is fine with MB. I took this one:
    http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=235&model=TG-3468

    same behaviour - system doesn't see it but if I plug eth cable then leds on lan card blink.

    please tell me what is wrong I do? I checked bios for anything related to PCIe and found nothing.

    Have you tried updating your Intel chipset drivers? They can be found at Intel.com in the download center. They would have updates for the PCIe drivers and other assorted H61 chipset features.
