    Looking for some advice,

    recently built a new pc

    Mobo: Asrock Z370 mini itx
    CPU: i7 8700k
    16gb DDR4 ram
    corsair sf450

    I have another pc and using a evga gtx 1050 2gb gpu and all is well in that as It's for work and light cad designs

    I took the gpu home to see what difference it made instead of using integrated graphics on the 8700k (only trying out some mmo's no power hungry games;) however, the machine would not recognise the card??

    -checked the bios and primary graphics are for pci.
    -unplugged all sata as m.2 is running windows
    -reset the board and no difference.
    -checked the wattage at the wall and under load im at around 150W
    - the gpu powers up from the pci slot so no external power to the psu
    - cannot download drivers as it will not pick up the card
    - checked dxdiag & device manager and not there

    I put the gpu back in my work pc and all is well.


    I am at a loss and think the pci slot is dead. I do not have another pci card to check which is frustrating. any ideas??
