System Slots>Slot Usage


New Member
OK, I have been having a hard time getting my motherboard to recognize my video card. I ran HWINFO64 with nothing plugged in to the slots on my system and HWINFO64 reports "In Use" under System Slots>System Usage on each device under System Slots. I have seen screen shots from other folks where some will be "available" and some will be "in use." Any ideas what the issue could be?
You refer to information under SMBIOS DMI. All this information comes from the BIOS and the BIOS is fully responsible for the content - HWiNFO only interprets it. Unfortunately it is a common practice that BIOS/system vendors do not return valid, reliable and actual information here.
