Default pci express

Hello

I have just finished building my PC,when i tried to start nothing comes on the screnn although the lcd posters indicates "welcome".

The thing that i would like to ask is,if there is anything wrong with my graphics card.It is a pci express card on a pci express 2.0 slot.Is there anything wrong with it?

I will be getting my 280 gtx this monday and i hope this will work with my pci express 2.0 slot.

Please let me know if pci express can run in apci exprss 2.0 slot or not.

Mike

I am pretty sure the PCI Express 2.0 slots are backward compatible... only makes sense. You should post in the Troubleshooting forum, or better yet have a read of some of the threads on dead computer builds there... lots of good advice and happy computer builders when they find the connector they didn't install, or reseat the connections and it all works fine!
