Removing or installing an expansion card
The computer has two PCI Express x1 expansion slots, one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, and
one PCI Express x16 expansion slot that is downshifted to a x4 slot.
The PCI Express slots support only low profile cards.
You can install a PCI Express x1, x4, x8, or x16 expansion card in the PCI Express x16 slot.
For dual graphics card configurations, the first (primary) card must be installed in the PCI Express
x16 slot that is NOT downshifted to a x4.
To remove, replace, or add an expansion card:
