The problem is not the board, it is the implementation and the limit of the PCI-e lanes in the CPU.
Solution, Do not use slot 4.
For add in cards use old PCI-X cards at 133MHz.
They are cheap used, 64 bit, and are 8 times faster than PCI.

Yeah, but it's not the slot; it's the northbridge chipset or a PCI bridge driving it that's perhaps overheated or set funny.  If you use 2 CPUs they can fall out of step several ways, or your clock circuits can age badly by themselves!  Got fresh CMOS batteries in there?  It could be that PCIe was merely asked to run at a frequency it won't run.  You should carefully make sure the board is nice and clean, reflash or at least clear settings on the BIOS, confirm the PCI videocard boots, make sure all the chips are cooled well, and again see if you can get a PCIe card to work without complaint.

No. There is no software to change pci-e speeds. You would need a board already set up for pci-e2 to get the top speeds. Most pci-e2 graphics cards are backwards compatible but they will run at the slower speed. Hope this helps.

Looking in the net I found someone running an E8500 on this board so I guess an E8400 will work fine.

What type of video card can I use on this motherboard? D945GZIS AGP? PCI? PCI EXPRESS?


Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

The full details of your motherboard are below:


Product Description The Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS delivers an integrated graphics solution in the Essential Series by combining exceptional value with quality and reliability and supports Intel Core2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Celeron D processors with 1066/800/533 MHz system bus in the LGA775 package. This board features a PCI Express x16 connector, integrated 10/100 LAN, dual-channel DDR2 memory, Intel High Definition Audio (Intel HD Audio) and up to eight USB 2.0 ports.
Processor Model: D946GZIS Chipset Type: Intel 946GZ Express Processor Socket: LGA775 Socket Installed Qty (Max Supported): 0 ( 1 ) BIOS Type: Intel Storage Controler: ATA-100
Memory RAM Installed ( Max ): 0 MB / 4 GB (max) Supported RAM Speed: PC2-4300, PC2-5300 RAM Features: Unbuffered, dual channel memory architecture
Audio Audio Output: Sound card Sound Output Mode: 5.1 channel surround Compliant Standards: High Definition Audio

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO

How can i tell the difference between pci slots and pcie slots


The Peripheral Component Interconnect or more commonly known as PCI is a standard for connecting a lot of devices inside your computer to extend its capabilities. Devices like sound cards, modems, NIC, TV Tuners, and some video cards have at some point or another have used the PCI port.
PCI express ( PCI-E ) is a much improved version in terms of speed. PCIe uses a serial interface instead of the old parallel interface used by PCI. It also utilizes individual buses for each of the devices connected to it instead of a shared one like what PCI uses. The difference in speed is quite huge when comparing the standard PCI slot which runs at 133MB/s to a 16 slot PCIe that can send or receive up to 16GB/s.

The most common use for PCIe nowadays is with graphics cards which benefits hugely from the huge bandwidth provided by the interface.
1. PCIe is much faster compared to PCI.
2. PCIe uses a serial interface while PCI uses a parallel interface.
3. PCIe speed is classified into lanes, each capable of delivering up to 1GB/s data transfer.
4. PCI slots are standardized while PCIe slots vary depending on the number of lanes the slot is intended for.
5. Despite PCIe superiority, most manufacturers still use the PCI standard for their devices.

Unlike PCI slots which are the same size for all devices, PCIe slots can differ depending on which form factor it accepts. The longest would be the 16 lane slot and understandably, the shortest is for the x1 devices.

I hope this much information is enough for you to understand the difference between both of them. If you need any more help let me know.. !

Wha t is a pci


Conventional PCI (part of the PCI Local Bus standard and often shortened to PCI) is a computer bus for attaching hardware devices in a computer. These devices can take either the form of an integrated circuit fitted onto the motherboard itself, called a planar device in the PCI specification, or an expansion card that fits into a slot. The name PCI is an initialism formed from Peripheral Component Interconnect. The PCI Local Bus is common in modern PCs, where it has displaced ISA and VESA Local Bus as the standard expansion bus, and it also appears in many other computer types. Despite the availability of faster interfaces such as PCI-X and PCI Express, conventional PCI remains a very common interface.

The PCI specification covers the physical size of the bus (including wire spacing), electrical characteristics, bus timing, and protocols. The specification can be purchased from the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG).

Typical PCI cards used in PCs include: network cards, sound cards, modems, extra ports such as USB or serial, TV tuner cards and disk controllers. Historically video cards were typically PCI devices, but growing bandwidth requirements soon outgrew the capabilities of PCI. PCI video cards remain available for supporting extra monitors and upgrading PCs that do not have any AGP or PCI Express slots.

Many devices traditionally provided on expansion cards are now commonly integrated onto the motherboard itself, meaning that modern PCs often have no cards fitted. However, PCI is still used for certain specialized cards, although many tasks traditionally performed by expansion cards may now be performed equally well by USB devices.

Will these graphic card work on my pc


yes, it will all works for your computer as long as the graphics card you mention have a PCI express interface in order for it to fit into the PCI express slot.

hope this could help you!...:-)THANKS..

About graphics card slot..


The board has a pci express port on it. You can install any video card which uses the PCI-E x16 interface. Almost all new video cards use this interface.

Your board also has an onboard video card (ATI x300 model). You don't actually need a graphics card unless you want the better performance for games.

PCI


"As of 2007, PCI Express has replaced AGP as the most common interface for graphics cards on new systems. With a few exceptions, all graphics cards being released today (2008) from ATI and NVIDIA use PCI Express. NVIDIA uses the high bandwidth data transfer of PCIe for its newly developed Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology, which allows two graphics cards of the same chipset and model number to be run as a pair, allowing increased performance. ATI also has developed a dual-GPU system based on PCIe called CrossFire. Towards the end of 2007, AMD released a motherboard chipset, the AMD 790FX, which supports up to four PCIe x16 slots, allowing tri-GPU and quad-GPU configurations for ATI cards.
Uptake for other forms of PC expansion has been much slower and PCI remains dominant. PCI Express is commonly used for onboard gigabit ethernet and wi-fi but add-in cards are still generally PCI, particularly at the lower end of the market. Sound cards, modems, serial port cards and other cards with low-speed interfaces are still nearly all PCI. For this reason most motherboards supporting PCI Express offer legacy PCI slots as well."
