Destroyed PCIe 3.0 slot

Go to solution Solved by LinusTech,

Yes you can just cut it off if you think some of the mangled pins are shorting out causing issues. 

In shipping somehow a PCIe 3.0 slot got broken, totally bent...

Now the pc won't boot and the motherboard is having trouble with that pcie slot, would it be a good idea to just get the plastic off and snip the pins off?
(This is an old motherboard btw)

 

Thanks!

That doesn't mean you wont be able to get a refund from whoever you bought it from, does it?

75% of what I say is sarcastic

 

So is the rest probably

It's from a family member, but I need this mb quickly.
I don't really have time to find a replacement or something.

Put the video card in another PCIe slot.  You should have minium 2 16x PCIe slots.  thanks

I have done that, the motherboard still doesn't want to boot with that broken pcie slot

But the question of can i simply snip it off still remains unanswered.
