"and this one too until now" Does that mean the Asus card previously worked in the same 16x slot?

Did you unplug the computer when swapping out cards?

Thanks for your reply.
THe card was working fine. I unplug everything and installed a new cooler. Then the card never worked again.
I know there may be sth wrong in the reassembly but there is not much to it. Just connecting the usb, 12v conectors, etc....
So 'yes' was working before, now after installing the cooler it does not. I isoleted everything (video card an motherboard and still does no seem to affect anything)

The Old card 8800gts works on 16x pcie slot so you may think the problem is the video card but how can it work on 8x pcie slot then?

any pointers will be helpul

ps. The motherboard has several beeps and fails to power on when the 460gtx is installed on the pcie 16x slot

YOu probably are not getting the card seated fully in the slot. is it hitting something at the back end?

I know it's wierd. I tried many many many times.... the back up card WORKs on the pcie x16 slots, but since it is a GTS 8800 I am not sure this means PCIE x16 are working 100%. Are there any tools to TEST my Asus motherboard?

I tried reseting the original settings. The video card (gtx 460) still only works on PCI x8 :( :()
