I have a new optiplex 3040 and tried to plug a new logilink 2-port PCI-Express ethernet card to mainbord. But each PCIE slots does not work. From bios menu all of them are shown, but in windows10 does not appear.
Thanks for posting.
The motherboard has three black PCIe x1 slots. The PCIe slots should be fine, if your card is this one: http://dell.to/2h6XoAX, then it is not compatible with Windows 10.
Thanks for suggest. When I tried to it another windows 10 (Optiplex 3020) machine, it worked fine. Also in first PCI slot i tried another ethernet card and it works, but i pluged in third PCI Express slot, does not works.
some screenshots in atteached. tplink_slot1 works fine, but tplink_slot3 not works fine.
Then there may be a problem with your motherboard. Please contact Tech Support to troubleshoot and resolve. Thanks.
PCI-E version 1.0 cards do not and will not work in PCI-E version 2.1 or 3.0 slots.
The slots speed is too fast and they do not downclock the slots to accomodate older cards.
The other issue is that 64 bit windows 10 requires WHQL certified drivers or they will not load. Hardware that does not have a certificate in bios will also not load unless secure boot is turned off and legacy CSM is turned ON.
Please continue working with Tech Support for a resolution. Thanks.
