If that's the problem, you should be able to see some bent pins in the MICR 
riser card connector.  Don't bother trying to fix them... I did for a while, 
then gave up and bought new boards and risers.

Of course, I realized that the boards I bought from the guy came with risers 
*after* I bought a pair of risers in a different auction.

If anyone needs a 420R riser or two, let me know...
