I bought a new cookie cutter Pc, with plans to upgrade, and first on my list was the onboard graphics..as they suck.
Anyways, I open it up, and attempt to slot the card in, as I have in numerous Pc's before, and to my surprise, the card will not fit. It's not a case of jiggling it, it's way too far off to do that. (It's a case of the card being longer than the slot. When flush with the openings on the back, the card is back about 4mm from the slots)
I've never heard of this problem before- and was thinking maybe the computer maker (Gateway) screwed the motherboard in wrong? But what is weird, and nullifies that idea, is that the rest of the slots & stuff line up.
I have tried multiple cards and all have the same problem.
Anyone have any ideas? :s
Here are some pics...
This is the slot in question.
This shows how far the card is from lining up
This shows the card flush with the back f the pc - so it cannot go frward any further.
And this shows the other parts & ports line up
Thanks in advance to anyone who can.
If more information is required, please say so
