Could be a busted slot. You try resetting BIOS?

become insolvent, break, crash, fail, fold up, go bankrupt, go into Chapter 11, pauperize (thesaurus )

It means the slot is non-responsive. I recently had a motherboard that had bad RAM slots. It wouldn't respond to 'em.

i mean is it somthing i would be able to fix without replacing the mobo cause iv looked everywhere i cant find my mobo anyware i got it on 3btech
but now they dont have it P5NSLI - asus i got it for like 40-50$ without the cpu or anything do you think it could be anything els
im using the computer right now but the cards in slot 2... duuuuuuu um if you know of any place i could get the mobo or some similar one i can use
without reinstalling windows so basicly same brand and stuff that would be very helpful but hopfully i can fix it..

I'm afraid you are going to have to get a new board and reload Windows. There is nothing you can do.

If you buy a similar one, you will have to reload Windows. Did you try looking on eBay?
