ASUS m5a97fx pci express x16 slot stopped working no fans and no video slot #2 has fans but no video switched cards and power cables still nothing

That would indicate a problem with the MOBO since the 'Blue' PCIe x16 slot is ideally meant for the GPU. Things to try:
1. Clear CMOS (unplug the PSU for 5+ minutes) use the CMOS Jumper 5+ seconds ; see -
2. Boot into the BIOS and press (F5) to Load Defaults, save and shutdown.
3. Blow-out and ensure the Blue PCIe slot is clean and the GT 430 is properly seated, and to my knowledge there's no additional power (PCIe power pins) - but if there is then connect per the GPU's manual.

New motherboard GA-p67x-ud3-b3 no video on boot

  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

I have a Gateway dx4840-37, standard except for 12MB ram upgraded. I am trying to figure out what type of PCIE x16 slot I have. 1.1 or 2.0? I am ready to upgrade my graphics card and want to make sure full...

Try contacting Gateway, their technical documents do not specify. There is a lot of cross compatability in PCI-E, most of the issues come down to power requirements.

I am using AMD 6400+ with M2N VM DVI WITH VGA card GT8600 1 GB but my graphic doesn't support what is the problem please tell me.

Your problem may be your in the wrong slot. My m2n board has 2 pcie slots. One is an X8 and the other is X16. Your card may be in the wrong slot. The blue one is the X16 and the black is X8. If you are using 2 PCIe cards the X 16 slot will only run at X8. Hope this helps.
