I just put the thing together, it has one card in it, a X700 pci express card, which is installed and working perfectly. Still it says there is a pci device not installed properly.

Its a shot in the dark but it may have something to do with the new video card.

Go to the Device manager and double click the unknown device and click "update driver" with your PCI-e driver cd in your cd-rom drive.

See if it finds what it needs

What motherboard is it?

Could be a raid controller,extra either net controller etc... that needs to be disabled in the bios or needs a driver off the motherboard driver cd
