Ok update.Turns out my problem was not with the FX card but with the lower boards not connecting properly via a clip together connection.Creating all kinds of crazy.You would have to take all lower boards out,disconnect one from the other and pop/clip them back together.While down there do the same with the FX board.My boards need to be Screwed back to together in such a way as to not create a disconnect again.Anyway saved my machine as it was just getting worse and was unusable.Plus i got my FX back !!!!! Very happy now “ ]
Dryad, you know those ribbons with chunky connectors.. i almost snapped one taking it out, i just wondered if you have any tips for taking the lower boards out.
