The pci slots seem to be faulty since my psu broke 3 months ago since then have been using a usb dongle for the internet.

The pci'e slot seems to be workng perfectly though so I dont know.

I did buy a replacement pci wireless card but when I installed it it killed the new card to since I then tried both cards on another pc and they both get he same error "code 10"

So the board works totally bar the pci slots.

Its a Asus P5b- vm se

I doubt 775 sockets are worth much any more. Especially ones with possible broken slots hehe. You might get a fiver for it.

If it is working fine, then somewhere in the region of £15-20 seems to be the average on eBay. Not worth the hassle if you ask me.

Well its a strange thing since both pci slots give the same error so it may somehow be something easy to fix since all the sata slots work, the ide slot works the pci'e slot works, the cpu slots work.

What Graphics Card is in the PCIe Slot and what PSU are you using?

BTW, the cards aren't dead, error code 10 is kind of generic, if you try the cards in another PC they should work fine.

------edit

Oh and if possible, what was the previous Power Supply in the system that broke down?

It was a brand new OCZ Stealhstream 600W psu I placed in pc after old one shorted out and that was also a OCZ Stealhstream 600w as I got it replaced from place I bought it from.

The strange thing about the cards is that I tried on anotheer pc and both got code 10 on them and even tried installing Vista, then XP then 7 again with same code 10 errors.

But the one in the machne when the psu died does work on my very old Athlon pc but the signal keeps disappering then reappearing

Right, what cards are you referring to and also what graphics cards are in the main machine and the other machine you got the error code 10 on?

Is there SLi in any of these rigs? Were both the machines outputting error code 10 using similar 775 boards (ie. same chipset)?

Wireless pci cards, original was a Cisco Aironet one that was probably on its last legs anyway since it was having issues being recognised on my pc before and I had to manually chose a driver since Windows was recognising it as a generic ethernet card instead of autoinstalling.

The newer one was a Belkin one that didnt work, it just said code 10 too.

On machine 2 both the cards that were in my main got code 10 too but I bought anther and tested it in my spare pc and it did work first ime but dont want to risk putting it in my main.

No sli as I only use one card both pcs had core2quads in but main is a Asus one and spare is a Foxconn one.

Can you list the graphics cards you have used, which have worked which have not?

Wild stab in the dark here, but I am going to say the G92 Nvidia cards may be the issue. Conflicting somehow with the chipset. If you say your using ATi, I will eat my hat hehe

Its a bog standard HD4870 in my main and a generic one in my 2nd think its 9200LE

But if its a conflict why was there no conflict before the psu blew bar the fact that the card wasnt autorecognised since I got it.

The only other possible conflict there may be is that the leds havent been working since I placed the mobo in but with anothr mobo they work.
#9
Ugh, this is confusing lol

The only other thing I can think of is that when that PSU blew it somehow destroyed the HD4870. It is still working, but it isn't letting you pair anything with it.

Can you confirm that other cards work with the 9200LE in your main PC?

Havent tested it with it since its a bit of a big task removing it from case but I do think I did test it with the onboard vga slot and it still got code 10.

Perhaps whatever blew on the HD4870 also blew on the other card(s), they still work when they are on their own. It is possible that the board is fine. The cards are the issue, the only thing you can do is pop in 9200LE in your main rig and a PCI card that wasn't in the main rig when the PSU blew and test each slot.

I hope that makes sense, I have never seen this before but I do not see what else could be the issue.
