    DX79SR: Can't use PCI-E x16 (x8 electrical) with x1 card (Sound card, serial card or USB card)


      I am having major issue with the PCI Express x16 connector (x8 electrical) to work with x1 card.

      All the x1 cards I have tried, Creative X-Fi Xtreme audio, Sunix 4 port serial and Sunix USB 2.0 4 port. They all have the same yellow bang message "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)". Location PCI Bus 2, device 0, function 0.


      I have disabled onboard sound, USB 3.0 and Marvell 6.0Gb SATA but still no luck.


      Tried to use 2nd  x16 video card into x16 connector (x8 electrical), works OK.


      PC Spec: DX79SR (BIOS 0553)

                      i7 3820

                      4x2GB Kingston HyperX 1600

                      1TB WD RE4

                      Gigabyte GTX 570

                      Win7 32bit (Updated)


      Need some help please!!

      Thanks in advance,
