My PC broke down a few months ago and I'm just getting around to repairing it. When it broke I had a "GTX 750 TI" that I bought off of Ebay and it turned out to be a GTX 550 TI. Well that was when things went south... the computer refuses to post and I was thinking it was the RAM, the motherboard, or the CPU. But I got to thinking could that fake GPU have killed my PCI-E slot, because my FX-4300 has no integrated graphics and I only have 1 PCI-E slot on my motherboard. Does anyone know how to diagnose a dead PCI-E slot in my circumstances? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Nevermind. I think i solved my own problem. I am going to turn on my PC and see if the HDD LED light is coming on. If it is the graphics the hard drive would be in use but if its not the graphics and its a component the gard drive wont be in use
