Got my abit Ip35-e today, dropped a known working PCi-e card into it, no video post. Took it out and put a standard PCI video card in it, posted right away got video output.. I tried to change the Initial video to pci-e didn't help. But what I did see was a setting for PCI-E 1.0 or 1.0a... Could that make a difference, its an old x1600pro? Other than this issue I do like this fairly cheap Abit board though I must say and the little chip I put in it runs pretty nicely. Good replacement for my blown P5LD2 if I can get the Pci-e to work, otherwise I'll figure its a blown port and rma it.
