Thanks - I wasn't sure whether peoples were saying that there are connectors there waiting to have cards installed or whether there are not even the connectors and now I know it's the latter

I ordered some pci-e headers from ans soldered them on. The motherboard is pre-soldered and it easy. problem is the mini will not recognize anything i plug into the two slots that I soldered on. I bought the broadcom 70012 hd card and tried it on my acer it it ran 1080 flawless.

Would there be something hidden in the bios or a jumper on the motherboard to activate the two slots?

help me figure this out and I will mail you 2 pci-e headers to solder on yours
