    Hi everybody :
    I just ran a diagnostic on my System, and, for the PCI slots the result stated "PCI-E In Use ". I don't understand this result. Because there's no cards in any of the slots. garystan

    What diagnostics did you run? Post a full report or a screenshot from it. Also post the exact mode of your computer and/or hardware. Without any real details we really can't even begin to guess or help you understand the results.

    REPLY : As for MODE, I think it's NORMAL (not SAFE) mode. I ran SPECCY. But, I'm not sure HOW to attach a snapshot of the results to my reply. garystan

    If you do not have a graphics card, wireless card, or any other type of card in any of the PCIE slots then Speccy is simply showing incorrect results, it happens. On my computer it shows all as available when that's not true either.

    It's probably reading the mobo aspect of the slots....because it's picking up the volts on each slot and the actual slot number. So it might be a sensor related or something like that.
