SIW Tells me that all slots are in use when only one is
#1
Hello,

I have tried this on several different motherboards but when I look at availability of slots I get the message that they are all "in use" when I scroll through each slot tree.

I just realized recently when opening the housing that this is not actually accurate to what I physically see on the board.

This can be X16 or express ports or basically any combination.

Thoughts?

Thanks

john

Please run the following command:
WMIC SYSTEMSLOT GET TAG, CURRENTUSAGE

The CurrentUsage property indicates the current usage of the system slot.
Values are: “Reserved” (0), “Other” (1), “Unknown” (2), “Available” (3), “In Use” (4)

CurrentUsage  Tag

4             System Slot 0
3             System Slot 1
3             System Slot 2
3             System Slot 3
