We ordered a few custom HP Compaq 8200 Elite systems (QX034US)  that included the NVIDIA NVS 300 PCIe x16 video card (BV090AV). This video card has a single DMS-59 port but a large percentage of the systems we received had damaged ports as shown below: (images of two separate systems)


Port's pin evidently still work however and we can get a signal and everything works fine but wanted to see if others had this problem as this should never happen coming directly from HP.

Had similar problem with Dell OptiPlexes about 5 years ago but the problem was with bent pins on the DMS-59 cables which splits to either 2 VGA or 2 DVI ports. they were 'new' Pc direct from Dell too but I suspect they may have included used parts, maybe the same thing happened witht eh Video cards in your HP systems? Some used video cards included in your new systems.
