Go into bios and reset the bios to defaults if you can get into bios.

what card you are inserting in? have you tried 1/2 different types of cards?
if you have recent BIOS upgrade, then reset it to default for optimized performance and then start changing it step by step until problem shows up again.

try tweaking the BIOS, some new feature might be blocking the PCI slots to work.
