INTEL DP55KG with i5-650 - Disable CPU controlled PCIe slots?

Community Manager

Dear fellows,

I work with XP PRO SP3.

I just bought a new computer with INTEL motherboard DP55KG with i5-650 processor.

Now I must install my graphic card (CONNECT 3D ATI HD5770 1GB, PCIe 2.0) on one of the 2 blue PCIe slots (controlled by CPU), but it does not work there because they are CPU controlled. However it works on any of the other black PCIe slots (not CPU controlled).

The point is that I must move my graphic card to one of the blue slots because it is very big and gives no space to install other PCI and PCIe devices.

My question is: is it possible to DISABLE (somehow) that CPU controlling function, turning such blue slots into NORMAL PCIe slots, just like the blak ones?

Thanks in advance,
