    [Formula]Little shiny thing in the MPCIe

    I went to plug in the mPCIe combo II into the motherboard and I saw something shinning from one of the holes in the MPCIe slot where I would fit it.

    I took a picture, it isn't great but you can see what I am talking about in the picture. Is this normal or should I get a replacement? (I know it's a small thing but rather get 100% working one).



    I think that it's stopping the combo ii from going in.

    Hi, DavidFord and welcome

    That does look like the dreaded bent pin, doesn't it. If the metal contact of the socket is bent into the way of the combo ii plug, it will surely stop the combo ii from seating.

    I'm afraid that anything you do to correct the socket pin will void the warranty -- they'll blame everything on you -- and has little chance of working in that tiny socket. Depending on where you got the board, you could return it or RMA it to ASUS.

    Thank you Jeff for your input. It's a shame to hear that the pin is bent, I'm not going to even try fix it myself rather just get a replacement board which I hope isn't going to take too long.

    Other than this little problem I love the board.
