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.
Thx for your info!
