I just got a GTX 1080 and i have confirmed that it works. but the motherboard in my computer wont detect it. I have used the same slots for another Geforce card, and it works perfectly, but nothing I do seems to allow me to use the GPU. Ive even tried replacing the power supply.

UPDATE I have confirmed that while in the PCIEx16_2 slot, the card shows up, but is reading as using x0 lanes (I think that's what it says, honestly I'm quite new to this)
However, when in any other x16 slot, it does not show up.

Yes. I have. I have confirmed that the card is fully functional. I have also confirmed that my motherboard is fully functional, with another Graphics card.
